Update: it seems to be officially official now.

Nick C, in the comments says that Pushing Daisies and Dirty Sexy Money have been officially cancelled and that word is starting to leak out.  We haven't seen anything official, so for us it is still but a rumor at this point, but Nick has been very accurate with his info in the past and we'll give him all the credit if he's right -- and of course all the blame if he's wrong!

Based only on numbers, that makes complete sense to us.  It's not a commentary on the quality of either show, but the ratings have been below average and our renew or cancel index has predicted these shows wouldn't be picked up.  Of course, it's not perfect, and doesn't explain NBC's Life (which I enjoy a lot) and Knight Rider getting full season pick ups.  But ABC is not NBC.

We're not out to get these shows, we just are looking at the numbers.  Please note, if anything the last year plus of working this blog has turned me into someone who is definitely not a fan of "save our show" campaigns.  Anybody can do what they want, and if you want to participate in something like that, I'm not going to discourage you.  I'm not going to encourage it either though.  There are a lot of reasons for this, too long to get into now.

My bias would be that you make a charitable donation via an organization like Donors Choose (an organization that helps teachers help their students) in memory of how much you enjoyed the show instead of bugging the networks, but it's just a bias.

We'll keep you updated with any official news as it becomes available.
