Not talking about Obama’s economic recovery plans. Talking about ABC using some of that Dancing with the Stars money to keep our beloved Pushing Daisies, um, pushing up daisies. Or from Pushing up daisies…WHATEVER. From James Hibberd @ The Hollywood Reporter via AICN :
All other current shows, including “Don’t Forget The Lyrics,” “Prison Break,” “Ugly Betty,” “My Name Is Earl,” “Private Practice,” “Heroes” and “Chuck,” all received full-season orders before the season began. “90210” and “Fringe,” like the “Mentalist,” received full-season orders not long after their debuts.

Just let that sink in. The abysmal 90210 (which did so badly in Australia they dumped it until summer reruns) got the full season pick up. Knight Rider is likely to continue on. Is it too early to start a Save Our Show campaign in the style of Arrested Development?Probably. I’ll wait till I hear word from ABC. No sense worrying over milk which is not quite spilled yet, is there? You gotta wonder if Hole in the Wall will make it. That show looks expensive on a per episode basis. All those holes in all those walls.
