ABC Picks More 'Daisies,' Scripts Added to 'Carpoolers,' 'Moonlight'
By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- ABC's "Pushing Daisies" has received a full season order while newcomers "Carpoolers" and "Moonlight" have been asked for additional scripts.

Said news comes as the broadcast networks enter the last full week before the November sweeps period begins - a critical time for those series still awaiting word about their respective futures.

"Daisies" has handily won its Wednesday, 8:00/7:00c time period among adults 18-49 in each of its airings, making the back nine order not much of a surprise.

Meanwhile, "Carpoolers" remains a modest third-place option on the Alphabet's Tuesday schedule, retaining all of or building on lead-in "Cavemen's" audience in each of its broadcasts.

As for CBS's "Moonlight," the Friday entry pulled in front of ABC's "Women's Murder Club" in the key demographic last week, a sure sign the series may be here to stay.

To date only four series have gotten the go ahead for a full season - the aforementioned "Daisies," "Private Practice," The CW's "Gossip Girl" and CBS's "The Big Bang Theory" - while "Cane," "Moonlight" (four each); "Carpoolers," "Chuck," "Journeyman," "Bionic Woman," "Life" (three each); and "K-Ville" (two) have all landed script extensions.
