"Pushing Daisies" will keep pushing them out

This is one of the most unexpected pickups of the season: ABC gave a full-season order to "Pushing Daisies."

Its ratings have fallen off since the premiere, but it still attracts about 10 million viewers and wins its timeslot. I'm pretty well astounded: I was sure "Daisies" was headed to the pile of killer, never-seen TV shows. Things like "Action!" and "Profit" and "Cupid" and "Firefly." Somehow, it broke through - at least for a season.

I wonder if that says something about TV viewers' evolving tastes, or is it just an aberration?

Agreed - "Action" was awesome. Jay Mohr was never better (or really very good at all) before or since that excellent show.
