21 Hours of TV, Fall Preview (Wednesday)...

Well if you can do any simple arithmetic you will realize that having 9 hours of TV in 2 days will not equal 21 in 7.  The good news is that apparently the networks have decided that Wednesday will be light on the "things Dice likes" sauce.  Lost will be here come January, but what's available now? 

Pushing Daisies.

That's it. One show, but what a show it is.  In a sea of dark procedural crime dramas it stands out like purple suit at a funeral.  If you watch this show you know how fun, well written, and poignant it is on a week by week basis.  If you don't watch it, I beg of you, give it a shot.  These are the kind of shows that need to succeed in order not to see an all CSI line up every night of the week.
