Pushing Daisies, Dirty Sexy Money, Eli Stone Canceled for Now

Pushing Daisies, Eli Stone, Dirty Sexy Money Not Picked Up

ABC has decided against ordering more episodes of Pushing Daisies, Eli Stone, and Dirty Sexy Money, at least for now, writes The Hollywood Reporter. The story continues:

Actively avoiding the c-word, the network left the door open for ordering more episodes at a future date, though that is considered improbable. The trio are still on the schedule for next week.

Pushing Daisies has wrapped production on its 13 episodes for this season, while Dirty Sexy Money and Eli Stone will be able to finish their initial orders. There's no word on whether all of those episodes will air between now and when ABC's midseason schedule kicks off in January, though.

Meanwhile, this makes it official that Life on Mars will air after Lost starting in January. Scrubs will also join the Wednesday schedule.

Deep sigh. It's not like this is a shocking surprise for these shows (which all have gotten critical acclaim — especially Daisies — but have struggled in the ratings). But it's still, you know, sad. Can we start the collective wailing in the comments?

I am so so so soooo bummed about Pushing Daisies. Even though I didn't watch the first season, it had fast become one of my favorite shows. I don't get how horrible shows stay on forever, and fantastic ones get canceled. Darn you, ABC!!

I LOVE DIRTY SEXY MONEY! This really angers me a lot! I tried to watch PD when it first started but it was too weird and I hated it!

I have high hopes though... Maybe Pushing Daisies can pull an Arrested Development and have an in-talks movie coming out five years after the premature cancelation.

I am been so depressed since hearing this news. I watch all three of these shows. Eli Stone had good messages plus quirky singing, DSM was just fun and gorgeous to look at and, what can I say about Pushing Daisies...it was wonderful.

:mob: I cannot believe ABC went through with canceling Pushing Daisies. Ugh. I adore the show and need my weekly Ned fix. D*mn executives always cancel quality shows.

I never watched Eli Stone, but I loved Pushing Daisies AND Dirty Sexy Money. I've watched them both religiously since they first aired. I'm so sad to see them go, but if I could only save one it'd be Pushing Daisies. Please RETHINK this ABC!

Pushing Daisies has been one of the best shows I've seen in a long time. The colors and style remind me of Amelie sometimes, and the quick dialogue and quirky situations are such a joy to watch. I'm so sad that it isn't going to have any new episodes soon. It's such a fun show! Shame on ABC for not promoting it and giving it the attention it deserves.

All of these networks kill me! They knew the writer's strike was going to do some damage to ratings, but they chose to ignore that and act as if people were going to get back into the swing of things instantly. PD and Eli Stone, my two favs, weren't even shown in reruns this summer...after the writer's strike was over. They could have kept people in the loop by showing them in reruns and even getting some new viewers. That's how I eventually became addicted to 'Lost', watching it reruns over the summer after the first season. They, meaning networks..ABC in particular, jump the gun too quick and too much and leave a bunch of loyal viewers to these shows to move on to another station without hesitation. Kick rocks ABC! See you in January for 'Lost', though.
