Pushing Daisies is part of ABC’s Wednesday-night block, which has been one of the season’s more puzzling disappointments. Private Practice, Dirty Sexy Money, and Pushing Daisies are all down in the ratings department, and none of the suits seems to know why. Maybe they should ask some of us that are out here on main street, I bet we could tell them, it’s called a recession! None the less, " Private Practice" received a full-season pickup about a week ago, but so far no word has been given on both Daisies and Dirty Sexy.
Kristen Chenoweth, who plays fan favorite Olive Snook, is concerned about the show’s future.
"It looks like we could possibly not be getting picked up. We have not gotten our order for the back nine [episodes] yet," Chenoweth told The National Ledger. "We finish November 12, and if we don’t get any more news, then that means we’re done. We just don’t know what’s going on. It’s the not knowing that is driving everybody crazy. We’re still doing our show and keeping positive, but I think deep down people just want to know."
What Daisies has going against it is the show’s high production values; it isn’t a cheap show to make. And with the economy sluggish (and that’s a euphemism), ABC has to take a business-first approach. On the other hand, critics and executives are high on the program, so it’s really a case of cross your fingers and wait and see.
