I just don't get ABC

ABC canceled "Pushing Daises." (No, I haven't forgotten or forgiven them for that yet.) ABC canceled "Samantha Who?" Granted, I didn't watch "Samantha Who?" but it had Melissa McCarthy on it from Gilmore Girls. I enjoyed watching the actress formerly known as Sookie on the previews. You know which show ABC decided to bring back? They also touted it as a "hit show".

They are bringing back Wipeout. It's a human obstacle course where people are basically catapulted into mud or water. The official ABC site describes it as:
Human cannonballs! Human pinballs! Crashes, smashes and mud splashes!
The contestants compete across several weeks to win a grand prize of $50,000. After taxes, isn't being a human cannonball worth more than that? Your programming choices make me sad ABC, very sad.


  1. I loved Pushing Daisies and still have not forgiven them either. I loved Samantha Who? also. And I just dont see how a show like Wipeout, which is incredibly stupid, could stay on TV over shows like Pushing Daisies and Samantha Who?

  2. Not sure if you watched it last night or not. But last night was a new episode of Pushing Daisies. I was unable to watch it which was terrible but yeah. The last two episodes ever will be on Saturdays at 10 Eastern Time. Just thought I would tell ya
