‘Pushing Daisies’ to Be Canceled by ABC

It has been reported that ABC network has made a decision to cancel ‘Pushing Daisies’ production along with other two series, ‘Dirty Sexy Money’ and ‘Eli Stone’.

This fall season, yet another serial TV show has been canceled from its upcoming production. Bryan Fuller, “” co-executive producer in 2006-2007 period, has given a statement to E! Online that his drama comedy series, ““, has been canceled by ABC network.

To E! Online, Fuller gives a confirmation over the series’ axing saying that the decision comes directly from ABC network. He additionally mentions that ABC ‘s President of Entertainment, Steve McPherson, has personally called him about the matter.

In further explanation, he says that the cancellation comes after ABC decides not to order more episodes. “He (McPherson) never said we’re canceled but that was the gist of it. He said they’re proud of the show and not ordering episodes at this time,” Fuller says. “I could read between the lines and interpret that the door could be open in the future but I think that the gist of that is that we weren’t going to be moving forward on ABC.”

Fuller also states, “It’s very likely that Pushing Daisies will end after episode 13, which as you know, is a cliffhanger. But 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.” Then he adds, “To be honest, I am so proud of the show. We put together 22 really good episodes. I’m sure I’ll be working with a lot of these people again, and I would love to do so.”

Fuller refuses to give any reasons over the cancellation, but the latest ratings show that “Pushing Daisies” episode entitled “Oh, Oh, Oh, It’s Magic”, has been watched by only 4.86 million viewers.

At the same time, the same unfortunate situation has also happened to ABC’s other series, “” and ““. Reliable sources have reported to E! Online that the two series have followed the footsteps of “Pushing Daisies” to be canceled. Still, the series’ representatives have refused to give any comment. —  Ace Showbiz

Ugly Betty Episode Recap

Americaferrara_uglybetty_240

Stupid ol’ Amanda is being her annoying self again at home, but Betty has bigger concerns since former Mode assistant Nick Pepper has returned to his old stomping grounds (now that he’s done getting dumped by Calvin over on Greek) flush with his success as Deputy Culture Editor at a local mag. His secret: He went through the prestigious Young Editors Training Initiative (yes, YETI for short) and since then he’s been catapulting up the career ladder.

Betty finds that apply to YETI, she only has 48 hours to put together her magazine concept that reflects herself and get a sponsor letter (from Daniel, natch). At first she tries to half-ass it by doing a fashion magazine mockup, but when she discovers Marc is applying with his own fashion mag, she’s scared. Add to that that YETI only chooses one winner per magazine, and she’s dejected and gives up.

Naturally, Clan Suarez bucks her up, and she gives her presentation about B magazine — the lifestyle magazine for young women who want to be themselves and do things that matter. Lo and behold, she wins! And Marc doesn’t.

Michaelurie_uglybetty_240 This is where Marc puts the ugly in Ugly Betty. He tells Betty that being Latina, she got in for tokenism, so YETI could meet a quota. Honestly, after his cheating on Cliff and now this, Marc has plummeted down my list of favorite characters this season. Where’s the vulnerability and love?….Continue reading »

Grey’s Anatomy Episode 5.9 Recap: “In the Midnight Hour”

Ellen Pompeo and Sandra OhGrey’s Anatomy starts with the Seattle skyline at night. I guess it’s all about nighttime and monsters tonight. We see flashes of scenes which I am presuming will end the episode.

But anyway, let’s start from the beginning. It’s the same night as it was in last week’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy. Izzie (Katherine Heigl) and Denny (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) just kissed, which is making her freak out and think she’s going crazy. Well, um, yeah, she kind of is. Denny suggests that they test her sanity by going all the way to home base, which they never got to do while he was alive. He takes his shirt off.

Cristina (Sandra Oh) goes to the hospital in the middle of the night because she heard that there might be a possible appendectomy. The first solo surgery is often an appy, so she’s just trying to get a leg up on the competition. It’s pouring out, in a very un-Seattle way. Seattle rains are usually very well-mannered. It’s more mist than rain, you know. But anyway, Cristina runs into Major McHottie (Kevin McKidd) outside the hospital who awkwardly tries to make small talk or, you know, at least acknowledge their major kiss from last week’s Grey’s Anatomy, but he can’t. Cristina doesn’t have time for his waffling and breezes right past him.

At home, Death and Die have an impromptu bonding session in the middle of the night because neither of them can sleep. Sadie hints that she is starting to like Lexie and might make her her new intern BFF. Of course, Meredith is jealous and doesn’t like the idea. Cristina pages Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Alex (Justin Chambers) about the possible appy, so everyone heads for the door. But, walking past Izzie’s room, they hear her making sex sounds, and everyone’s confused because Alex isn’t in there with her. (Although Alex is pretty amused to see that she’s flying solo.) When he tries to interrupt her fun, she doesn’t let him in, feigning illness….READ FULL RECAP AT BUDDY TV

Supernatural Episode Recap: 4.10 “Heaven and Hell”

Jensen Ackles, Julie McNivenTonight’s episode of Supernatural, which happens to be the last of 2008, offers some answers about Dean’s time in Hell.  It also wraps up with a powerful emotional gut punch that will leave fans floored.

Supernatural begins with Sam and Dean asking the angels why they need to kill Anna.  They’re as cryptic as usual, but they do mention that the girl is an even scarier threat than skanky ol’ Ruby.  Ass kicking ensues when the boys refuse to hand over the girl, but they’re saved when Anna uses some mental mojo to send the angels far, far away.  She’s left with a bloody hand, but other than that she’s fine.

While Dean and Ruby take Anna to Bobby’s panic room, Sam digs up some information on the girl’s past.  When she was about two years old, she was so terrified of her father that she had to be sent to therapy to get over her fear.  The boys call sassy psychic Pamela Barnes, hoping she can get into the girl’s head and dig up some more info.  We last saw Pamela getting her eyes burned out in “Lazarus Rising,” but being blind definitely hasn’t lessened her libido.  She still wants to be in the middle of a Winchester sandwich.  She hypnotizes Anna and tries to talk to her about her father, but the girl has a screaming fit that ends with exploding light bulbs.  When Anna wakes up, she thanks Pamela for helping her remember who she really is.  Guess what?  She’s an angel!….READ FULL RECAP AT BUDDY TV

Pushing Daisies Episode Recap

Ned

Pushing Daisies proves yet again why this show is so magical. Putting aside the fact that it took place almost entirely at a magic show, the character development alone was enough to be put anyone under its spell.

Ned used to love his dad’s magic tricks. That is, until he made himself disappear and never came back. Even though it wasn’t their fault, Ned always resented his long-lost half brothers for taking his father away. Now that they’re reunited as a family, Ned has to put aside his hatred for all things magic. Maurice and Ralston are illusionists and want their big bro and his friends to come see their double act and The Conjurer’s Castle. The main act is The Great Herrmonn (played by Fred Willard), who seems to have a problem keeping his assistants alive.

Herrmonn recruits Emerson to help solve the mystery, but it turns out to be more than Emerson bargained for. The “assistants” are actually animals—doves, a bunny, and a monkey. Pet detectives get paid big bucks, according to Emerson, but Herrmonn coughs it up with great fanfare. And this week’s case is off to a running start! Ned pulls Herrmonn aside to ask about his relationship with the twins. It turns out that their father abandoned the boys at one of his shows, and the twins were instantly enamored with magic. He thinks they were trying to hold on to their father’s memory….. Continue reading »

Private Practice Episode Recap

Katewalsh_privatepractice_240

Lots of love going around Private Practice this week. Not just sex, even. And with lots of sweet, sweet love comes lots of gigantic, throbbing trust issues.

Addison is looking to get it on with Officer Kevin, but he ruins the mood by saying those three little dangerous words, “I love you.” And while out with the boys at a bar, Cooper pulls the ultimate pickup score by taking Charlotte home… which both scared and impressed Sam and Pete mightily since they still didn’t know C & C are an item.

The next morning, Addison approaches Naomi (who finally says they’re back to normal – that was anti-climactic) to talk over the three-little-words moment. Naomi points out that she’s freaking out because Addison has trust issues, and Addison says it’s something wrong with Kevin… who would say the three-little-words so soon?  Pete and Sam bust in with news of Cooper’s hookup, leaving the rest of the practice freaking out, except for Violet who gets rushed by Naomi. In a kind of crazy Password gameshow stream of consciousness moment, Naomi realizes that Cooper is actually dating Charlotte. At that moment, Cooper walks in. Good morning Coop! Cooper gets weirded out that everyone knows, because that makes it “real.” Violet tells him that “real” is a good thing….
