ABC cuts episode order for two NYPD-based shows

ABC logoQuestion: how many shows can ABC have that are set in the world of the NYPD?

The network already has Life on Mars, and now comes news that ABC has cut the episode order for two other NYPD-based shows. One is Castle, which stars Nathan Fillion as a horror writer who helps the cops solve crimes (yes, another one of those shows). The other show is The Unusuals, which stars Amber Tamblyn and is a comedy about a police station. Maybe it's the new Barney Miller.

Both shows have had the order cut from 13 episodes to 10. They say it's not a quality reasons, it's just that they already have too many shows on the shelf, including Courteney Cox's new show with the horrible title Cougar Town and Mike Judge's new cartoon The Goode Family. They are also interested in picking up King of the Hill, which was just canceled by FOX.

ABC has already said no to a new Alyssa Milano sitcom, which Allison told you about earlier. I'm still kinda ticked they never gave Marlowe a chance.

Seriously? A cartoon (or two) will be put on the schedule with more hope than a Nathan Fillion vehicle? Really? And Cougar Town??? That might get more play than Fillion? He can deliver dialog better than 90% of the currents leads on television. I would have watched that show from the first episode (now I'm skeptical it will be canceled if it ever makes it to air) but would never even think about Cox or cartoons. What is this world coming to????

I just hope they have the sense to keep Pushing Daisies.
