'Pushing Daisies', 'Private Practice' Picked Up For Full Season

ABC has picked up freshman shows 'Pushing Daisies' and 'Private Practice' for a full season.

'Pushing Daisies' has received plenty of praise in its short run for being a show unlike any other on the air. The additional episode order adds 9 more to the original 13, and will give the comedy-drama 22 episodes in its first season. 'Daisies' has also performed consistenly for ABC in the ratings.

The show stars Lee Pace as a piemaker who can bring people back to life by touching them, and can send them off again with a second touch.

Meanwhile, 'Private Practice', the Grey's Anatomy spin-off has also been picked up for the season. It was put up against a tough slot (Wednesday's at 9 PM) by ABC but its fared even better than expected against the returning 'Criminal Minds' and 'Bionic Woman'.

ABC took a big gamble with an all-new lineup on Wednesday's but thus far the pairing has paid off.
