The Axe-Man Cometh

Eli for the Elbow
Eli Stone – the lightweight, feel-good series about a lawyer with visions – and Pushing Daisies have been as good as axed, according to Coming Soon . ABC has not ordered any more episodes of either shows for the moment, so neither will reach a full seaosn this year. Apparently the door remains open for extra episodes to be commissioned at some point in the future, but this isn’t very likely.

However, ABC has ordered four more episodes of another show teetering on the brink of cancellation, the US version of Life on Mars. Come January, Mars will also be moved in the schedules to follow Lost.
