Another one bites the dust

Not even Ned's magic touch can bring "Pushing Daisies" back without a conclusion to the writer's strike. A good episode to go out on, though: homeopathic drug mules. That's gold. Ah, I'll miss it.

So, "Pushing Daisies" is done. "The Office" is done. "Heroes" is done. "Big Bang Theory" is done. "How I Met Your Mother" is done. "Bionic Woman" is done (although not actually canceled yet). "Private Practice" is done. "Chuck" technically isn't done, but won't be back until the strike is over.

Yay! Merry Christmas each and every one. Actually, we'll have another dozen shows to add to the list before the end of the year.

There will still be TV to watch come Jan. 1, 2008, though. I'm planning to write about that stuff for my Dec. 27 column. It's not all reality shows, either. Although if the strike lasts through February, you'll be lucky to get "According to Jim" reruns.

Andy - By "done" do you mean on hiatus until the strike is over or done forever? I hope it is the former, I'd hate to loose Office and Heroes, and Chuck is pretty entertaining.

Technically, just "done" until the strike is over, they can ramp up production again and get it on the schedule. That's as likely to be fall, 2008, as it is anytime this TV season, though.

If this thing lasts another couple months, though, all bets are off.
