ABC Airs Pushing Daisies Opposite Barack Obama

TV Tonight: Pushing Daisies

Tonight, the Barack Obama political message will dominate the 8 p.m. hour. But if that doesn't sound like must-see TV to you, then might I direct your attention to another option? The lovely Pushing Daisies will air on ABC as normal in what some are considering the show's last, best chance to show it can draw an audience.

While NBC, CBS, and Fox are airing Obama, Pushing Daisies will have the only scripted program in the 8 p.m. hour (the CW's America's Next Top Model will also air as normal). It's a rare thing, for sure, and the question is whether the desire to watch something non-political will draw enough people to the struggling show. Even series creator Bryan Fuller is hoping people will "be voting for 'Daisies' instead of some silly old political ad."

Tonight's episode should be especially delicious, as the gang investigates a murder at a dim sum bar. Meanwhile, Stephen Root guest-stars as a character named Dwight Dixon, who stops by the Pie Hole saying he's an old friend of Ned's father's. And is there romance in the air for Emerson? Simone the dog trainer is back!

Will you put politics aside to give Daisies a try? To watch a preview, just

I already know who I'm voting for, so Pushing Daisies was my choice. Hopefully last night they got a big push to save them from the brink.

I love Pushing Daisies and thought the episode was good as usual. I am so sad to hear that the show is struggling! I hope it doesn't get canceled.

In my status message on facebook, I urged everyone to watch Pushing Daisies. I hope some people listen...I will be sad if this show was cancelled. I think that its terrible that it airs on a Wednesday night, I have a feeling that it would fare better on Tuesday nights - there is nothing else on! During commercials, I'll flip to the Obama infomercial.

I'm advocating that people Tivo Obama and watch Pushing Daisies live. They can watch Obama while Private Practice is on.

Please give this show a chance!!! Watch it tonight, and then go rent the DVD of season 1 over the weekend, you will LOVE it... The Nielsen ratings system is so outdated...ugh

Pushing Daisies is the hands down winner tonight (and EVERY Wednesday) in this house! Besides we decided a long time ago who we'd vote for.

Definitely watching Pushing Daisies! I voted early anyway. If I could I would nominate Emerson Cod for prez; his one-liners will be better than Bush's (and intentionally funny).

Ok, the election is in less than a week. If you are still undecided at this point then I feel sorry for you b/c this election started two years ago. So seriously, watch Pushing Daisies.

YES! Pushing Daisies is something I look forward to every week! I hope the situation tonight will grab some new viewers, and I hope those new viewers stick with it :)

I'm trying to get everyone to watch it or at least leave their TV on ABC! I love Obama and I'll be watching it, but I don't get ABC so I really have no choice.
