Pushing Daisies: Series Premiere

>Pushing Daisies, yet another of ABC's fall-freshman-flairs, puts the network way ahead of the game in the 18-39 year old slot. With shows like Ugly Betty, Desperate Housewives, Brothers and Sisters, and Dancing with the Stars, ABC is domineering the television market.

And the best part of this show: it's unlike ANYTHING on television. Even the paranormal deviants, Bionic Woman and Moonlight seem to follow the same tired TV trends we suffer these days (not that we don't like ruts, we just don't love them).

Pushing Daisies is edgy, witty, and most of all artistic -- blurring the already thin line between television and movies today.

This clip features Swoosie Kurtz (ER) and Ellen Greene (Little Shop of Horrors) as Charolette's aunts. According to the narrator, "...they shared matching personality disorders and a love of cheese..."

Pushing Daisies airs Wednesdays 7 p.m. Central on ABC (Sunflower Broadband ch. 9)

I missed it because I was showing the Martin Scorsese adaptation of The Age of Innocence to my ENGL 209 kids! I'll have to watch it online later...

The finale of Top Chef was good. I'm pleased.

I wish I could of seen this!! This is one of the fall TV shows that I know about that looks really good! Damn my lack of a television. Good news though, I may be getting a television tonight, so maybe I'll get to see it next week.
