Still No Word On Final Episodes of "Pushing Daisies", "Dirty Sexy Money" and "Eli Stone"
Big thumbs down to ABC for not being respectful to supposedly small (hey, we're talking millions here) but loyal audiences of three of its recently canceled dramas: "Pushing Daisies," "Dirty Sexy Money" and "Eli Stone," who still don't know when the remaining 3-4 episodes of these shows will air (or if they'll ever air).
Once they give up on a show, it's common practice for broadcast networks to disregard pleas of fan bases and pretend the show never existed. In fact, the fans are lucky if they get to see the last filmed episodes of a show burned off on a Saturday or during the summer.
One alternative these days is obviously putting the show online, as FOX did with final episodes of its failed mystery drama "Vanished" back in 2006. But, as we have seen, with a recently dumped Thanksgiving clip episode of "Dirty Sexy Money" (preempted by a Barbara Walters Obamas special), that doesn't always happen.
Will the fans have to wait till the shows' sophomore seasons are released on DVD? According to some unconfirmed reports, ABC is "contractually obliged" to air the final 3 episodes of "Pushing Daisies" and may do so on a single night. Whether "Dirty Sexy Money" and "Eli Stone" get the same treatment is anyone's guess at this time.
