Good news for Pushing Daisies

4 10 2007

I just noticed yesterdays ratings, and the drama that has redefined quirky ever since it was announced trounced the competition in the 18-49 demographic last night, and that after many a critic (including myself) said that it would be much loved but untouched by the masses. Pushing Daisies scored a 4.2 rating and had over 12 million viewers at 8pm last night, with the closest competition coming from CBS with Kid nation watched by 7.5 mil.

While this doesn’t guarantee the show a full season or anything, the numbers are very encouraging. It will be interesting to see how many of them drop off next week.

Incidentally, in the 9pm hour, Bionic Woman was off almost 30% from the premiere numbers. Lets see if that gets a mention in the UK media.
Pushing Daisies will probably start on ITV1 in the new year, before a lack of understanding by those who watch coronation street and the Bill causes it to be moved to a late night ITV2 slot. Watch the promo for episode 2 (in a crappier than usual quality) after the jump:
