ABC Picks Up 'Pushing Daisies'

TVWeek's James Hibberd: Rated

By Published on .

ABC has picked up a full season order of "Pushing Daisies," the network confirmed.

Although the whimsical Bryan Fuller-created drama has dropped off a bit from its impressive premiere rating, the series continues to dominate its Wednesday 8 p.m. time period and to provide a strong lead-in for ABC's top-rated "Private Practice" (which ABC picked up last week). The most recent episode of "Daisies" earned a 3.7 among adults 18 to 49.

Also, some have noted the show has managed to maintain the high standards set by its acclaimed pilot episode in a fall season where other series have creatively fumbled in subsequent weeks.
