Not even the reviving touch of its hero could stop Pushing Daisies from its untimely end: ABC has cancelled the whimsical fantasy series.
The network has also axed Eli Stone and Dirty Sexy Money (and yet the craptacular Private Practice not only lives on, but gets a cushy, post-Grey's Anatomy berth on Thursdays come January). None of the three cancelled series, all in their second seasons, fully recovered in the ratings following the writers strike earlier this year.
However, Bryan Fuller, Daisies' creator, says that this may not be the last we see of the Pie Hole gang after all: "We are talking to DC Comics about doing comic books that will wrap up our storylines, and I already have a pitch for a movie ready to go." So there may just be a happy ending for Chuck and Ned after all.
