Bryan Fuller on Pushing Daisies + Working on Comic Series

pushingdaisies-041609Bryan Fuller, creator of the canceled ABC series Pushing Daisies, previewed the final three episodes of the series to SCI FI Wire and added that the story may continue in a comic-book series from Marvel.  Here are some excerpts from SCI FI’s Q&A.

Fuller places most of the blame for the demise of the critically acclaimed but low-rated series on the writers strike and its poor time slot:

Fuller: The writers’ strike is the big bully to blame for the plummeting ratings. There was a writers’ strike in 1988, and television shows lost around 30 percent of their audiences. During this one, shows lost 20 percent of their audiences. It was a combination of the writers’ strike and being off the air for 10 months.

The other problem was our timeslot wasn’t good, since we didn’t have a lead-in. When we aired at 9 p.m., we went up by 3 million viewers, which was really dramatic. ABC refused to move us from the 8:00 timeslot, which had worked previously the season before, but after the writers’ strike and the erosion of the audience, it wasn’t sustainable, so we asked them to move us repeatedly. We would have even taken Friday night at 9 p.m., because people don’t watch TV earlier. All the Nielsen ratings indicate people start watching TV at 8:30. That was a big indication, but I certainly don’t think the quality of the show went down. If anything, it got stronger and clearer.
