ABC Shows Returning, But Not Until Fall

  • Private Practice
  • Pushing Daisies

ABC Shows With Fates Yet To Be Determined Officially

  • Big Shots, all signs point to shot dead.
  • Carpoolers, all signs point to the ride being over.
  • Cavemen, all signs point to extinction. The Geico ads are back though.
  • October Road will continue out its present season, but beyond that is a question.
  • Women’s Murder Club will hopefully not be disbanded. Update 2.25.2008: Will be back with three more episodes to air in April/May.

Wish Pushing Daisies was coming back sooner, but at least it is coming back. Hope that Women’s Murder Club will be back. Looking forward to a 1-2-punch of Grey’s Anatomy and Lost on Thursday nights in April and May.

    I am looking forward to Pushing Daisies and Grey’s especially, but also Ugly Betty, Samantha Who and more of the best show on these days (except for the Wire of course) LOST.

    Ron, I am glad we are going to get another five episodes of Lost this season, instead of just the eight pre-strike episodes we are in the middle of right now. This season has been great so far.
