For some odd reason, ABC has been left out of Wednesday night's all-Barack-Obama-television marathon. The Obama campaign has bought the entire 8-8:30 p.m. time slot from CBS, NBC and Fox, for about $1 million a shot...but not from ABC. That's good news for ABC's Pushing Daisies, the poignant and charming comedy-drama about a pie-maker who can bring the dead back to life. (Insert your own joke about the McCain campaign here.) The show's ratings have been in steady decline this fall -- but now it gets the television equivalent of a free kick, an airing with essentially no broadcast opposition, unless it turns out that Obama is planning to burn Bill Ayres at the stake during his infomercial. (You think I'm joking, but the Obama campaign won't breathe a word about what it plans to air.) If Pushing Daisies picks up a couple of extra million viewers Wednesday, that pie-maker won't be the only guy who gets credit for raising the dead.
