ABC has decided to order more episodes of Life on Mars, but has decided not to pick up Pushing Daisies, Dirty Sexy Money and Eli Stone.
The network hasn’t officially canceled the three shows, however, leaving open the possibility of ordering new episodes in the future, although that seems very unlikely. All three shows remain on the schedule for the time being.
Life on Mars, meanwhile, which received an order for four more hours, bringing its first year to a full 17 episodes, will be put go on hiatus starting December 11th, when Private Practice moves into its time period. Mars returns with new episodes January 28th at 10pm, airing after Lost (which premieres its new season the preceding week).
And finally, ABC has set a premiere date for Scrubs. The former NBC series that the network picked up after it was canceled will premiere Tuesday, January 6th at 9pm. with back-to-back episodes for two weeks, before settling into its regular time slot at 9:30pm.
