At this very moment, "Daisies" may be dead

Fresh off the news that ABC would be moving critical darling but ratings disappointment "Life on Mars" to a cushy, post-"Lost" Wednesday slot, comes word that the network will cancel further production on its similarly viewer-light delight, "Pushing Daisies."

According to TV Week, it's an industry insider putting the nails in "Daisies'" coffin, and there's been no official word from the Alphabet. However, the show wrapped filming on its 13-episode fall order yesterday; couple that with its ever-diminishing ratings and hearing a leak like this comes as no surprise.

Some small bit of relief comes from series creator Bryan Fuller, who has said that if "Daisies" were canned, he would fly back over to another struggling show, "Heroes,", which he wrote for during its brilliant first season.

But dammit anyway! Seriously! For those of you who have kept watching, "Daisies" has kept every ounce of the spring in its step it displayed during its first, strike-shortened season. After a two-week break, the show returns this Wednesday with an episode about a magician (the great Fred Willard) whose animal assistants keep getting bumped off.

Watch it while you can.
