Good News, Bad News: Mindy Kaling, PUSHING DAISIES & Courteney Cox

Good News: The first episode of Mindy Kaling’s (THE OFFICE) new web series HOUSE POOR is guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Bad News: There’s something terribly wrong with Network TV when Kaling’s three minute and eleven second video illicits more laughs than almost every comedy currently on TV. [See Video Above]

Good News: Wednesday’s episode of PUSHING DAISIES saw its ratings climb 16 percent to 6.6 million viewers. Bad News: Yet still managed to finish fourth in its timeslot up against Obama, Obama and yes, you guessed it, more Obama. [Source]

Good Great News: SCRUBS creator Bill Lawrence is teaming up with ex-FRIEND Courteney Cox for COUGAR TOWN. A new comedy set to air on ABC revolving around an attractive and newly single 40-year-old mother and her teenage son. Bad News: Ummm… Bill Lawrence and Courteney Cox teaming up for an ABC Comedy… the only bad news there is that it most likely won’t hit the airwaves until Spring 2009! [Source]

    “Pushing Daisies” needs time to blossom! I hope ABC exercises patience where it is concerned.

  • Josh Emerson

    I hope ABC will at least give us a full season of Daisies. I’m not optimistic though. I think the best case scenario for PD is that it’s chosen to finish out the season instead of Dirty Sexy Money. Both are struggling and I can’t imagine ABC keeping both on the air.

  • Hil

    If Obama killed Pushing Daisies I am going to be really pissed.

  • John

    The Obama/Obama/Obama vs Daisies numbers are not really bad.

    We need Obama more than Daises.
