What a deliriously joyous night of TV. I just finished watching this week’s episode of Pushing Daises and was thrilled to find Muffin Buffalo proprietor Marianne Marie Beetle competing against Ned and Olive from The Pie Hole at the Comfort Food Cookoff.

Bryan Fuller has always had a knack for squeezing in references to his other canceled-to-soon series Wonderfalls into his other shows (see this reference to Heroes). This was the ultimate crossover, however, as Muffin Buffalo crossed front and center into Pushing Daises. It was excellent seeing Beth Grant (who we’ve also loved this year on Logo’s Sordid Lives: The Series) back making muffins.

Adding to this week’s already excellent Daises episode was Kristin Chenoweth getting to belt out another tune (here’s the first one). This time it was The Bangles “Eternal Flame.” And here’s a clip…

Too bad ABC decided to cancel this delightfully quirky program (along with our other Wednesday night fave Dirty Sexy Money). If only Ned could touch Daises and bring it back to life, thereby killing some series that truly is lame (Hereos immediately comes to mind)…
