Kristin Chenoweth Interview for 'Pushing Daisies'

"When they called my name [for the Emmy nominations], I was just blown away." Kristin Chenoweth is living proof of the old adage good things come in small packages. The petite star sings, dances and acts, and her current role as Olive on ABC's 'Pushing Daisies' (season 2 premieres Wed., Oct. 1, 8 PM EST) has even scored her an Emmy nom. Chenoweth talked to AOL TV about what's in store on her critically acclaimed show, her Presidential voting secret and what she'll be wearing (and who she might be with) come Emmy night. KRISTIN CHENOWETH Q&A...

Get thee to a nunnery! That's the solution for Olive, who goes off to hang with some nuns when the burden of Ned and Chuck's (and now Aunt Lily's) secrets get to be too much. Meanwhile, back at The Pie Hole, Ned's freaking out about Chuck's need to be independent, Emerson's indulging his love of pop-up books and Chuck goes undercover at a honey-based cosmetics company to find out who killed Betty's Bees' head Bee Girl.

Could Pushing Daisies wind up as a movie?

I don't know about you, but when creator Bryan Fuller talked about concluding all the story threads from Pushing Daisies as a comic book, I was less than enthused. Now, however, I've got renewed hope. No, ABC is not even mentioning bringing Daisies back. They're not even committing to broadcasting the last few episodes. But Kristin Chenoweth thinks Pushing Daisies might be a movie. That's right, the show could/would/should be wrapped up as a movie in her estimation....

Pushing Daisies to shove pie down your pie hole

So what's better than a Pushing Daisies star saving you from the deadly embrace of crystal meth? Not much, but the answer to that (and, lets face it, most other questions) is free freakin' pie. ABC really doesn't want you to forget about the whimsical show that was cut short by the writers' strike, so Pushing Daisies is hitting the road. ABC has outfitted an Airstream trailer to look like The Pie Hole, the shop in which most of Daisies' action takes place, and is driving it across the country to give fans free pie. In addition to the delicious confections, the temporary Pie Hole will feature props from the show and plasma TVs on which fans can watch footage from the show. The Pushing Daisies Tour begins this Sunday and makes 10 stops. Follow me after the jump for the full schedule....

Pushing Daisies: Bitter Sweets

(S01E08) "Am I your boyfriend?" - Ned "Yes." - Chuck It was announced about two months ago that Molly Shannon would guest star on ABC's Pushing Daisies and the day, err... evening, has come. I've read a lot of comments from fans saying that they were somewhat scared after hearing she would guest star mostly because they thought her acting wasn't good enough for the show. In retrospect, her acting wasn't that great but it wasn't that bad either since Daisies is over the top at times. ...

David Arquette is coming to Pushing Daisies

ABC must love the Cox-Arquette family. The network's fall season will feature Courteney Cox in a three-episode arc of Scrubs, and now David Arquette is set to guest star on an episode of Pushing Daisies. This role marks Arquette's first ABC appearance since he starred in 2007's In Case of Emergency, which was canceled after only twelve episodes. I'll save the character-specific information for after the jump. Arquette will guest star in the fourth episode of Pushing Daisies' second season. While he's definitely an acquired taste, David Arquette seems just odd enough to fit in with the show's unique cast of characters....

Comic-Con: Pushing Daisies panel report

This morning marked the Comic-Con premiere of ABC pilot Pushing Daisies. Created by Bryan Fuller and directed by Barry Sonnenfeld, Pushing Daisies is the story of Ned, who has some complicated powers. He can bring people back from the dead by touching them, but only for one minute. He touches them again, and they go back to being dead. If he doesn't, they get to live, but a completely random person will die in their place. The set-up is a little convoluted, but once you see it, it makes sense....

What to Watch Wednesday, Oct. 22

'Stylista' (9PM, The CW) series premiere Dream job or nightmare? Maybe a little of both in this reality series, in which 11 aspiring magazine editors compete to win a junior editor position with Elle magazine, a New York City apartment and a one-year clothing allowance from H&M. The wanna-bes -- including Kate, a law student who becomes the group punching bag, and Megan, a bee-otchy rich chick who, trust us, you're gonna hate -- have to perform elimination challenges each week, beginning with tonight's opener, in which they must fetch a fetching breakfast for Elle editor Anne Slowey. Doesn't sound so tough? Let's just say Ms. Slowey isn't exactly a Cap'n Crunch kinda woman. MORE TV PICKS...

What to Watch Wednesday, Nov. 3

'Christmas in Rockefeller Center' (8PM, NBC) Al Roker hosts and Tony Bennett, Harry Connick Jr., Beyonce, the Jonas Brothers, David Cook and Rascal Flatts perform, but the real star of this celebration is the 72-foot-tall Norway spruce that will stand in Rockefeller Center. Tonight, Roker and the other celebs help flip the switch on the tree's thousands of multicolored lights, an event that officially marks the beginning of the holiday season in New York City. In fact, this year's tree is such a symbol of the holidays that it's getting its own star: a 550-pound Swarovski crystal ornament that will serve as the tree's topper. MORE TV PICKS...

18 Things We Learned at Comic-Con

The buzz on 'Heroes' season 3, Jack Bauer's bathroom breaks and more. There's no better place to preview TV shows and give back to fans than Comic-Con, and this year, networks embraced the opportunity like never before. After all the star sightings, exclusive footage, and hard-to-get swag -- we covet the Sci-Fi Channel's purple tote, labeled "BIG FRAKKIN' BAG" -- our heads are so full of great stuff, they just might explode. And wouldn't that be appropriate for Comic-Con? (Warning: Spoilers ahead!) COMIC-CON HIGHLIGHTS...

Bryan Fuller will return to Heroes (IF Pushing Daisies isn't picked up)

Please, Pushing Daisies fans, please note that I say IF. I even put it in capital letters! There was talk that Bryan Fuller would be asked by Tim Kring to return to Heroes after NBC told Kring to let two other producers on the show, Jesse Alexander and Jeph Loeb, go. Now Fuller confirms that he will definitely go back to the show if Pushing Daisies isn't picked up after the 13th episode of the series, which will be completed in January....

Pushing Daisies: Girth

(S01E05) "Tell Ned I love... his pies." - Olive This Halloween-themed Pushing Daisies episode has been one of my favorites so far this season. We learned more about Ned's past and we discovered who Olive used to be while being entertained by a magical and mysterious storyline that was reminiscent of stories and movies such as Sleepy Hollow. ...

Pushing Daisies: The Fun in Funeral

(S01E03) "You killed someone for me?" - Chuck After watching last week's episode, I was as worried as Joel was/is about Pushing Daisies's future. With such a stellar pilot, it was a given that the subsequent episodes wouldn't be as great but that second episode was a letdown. Narration aside (I'll get to this later on), this week's episode reassured me that PD can survive in its current format....

Pushing Daisies: Pigeon

(S01E04) Since my co-reviewer Izzy lives in Canada, she gets to see episodes of certain shows before we get to here in the States. One of those shows is Pushing Daisies, which airs on Tuesdays up there. After she saw "Pigeon" last night, she wrote me asking if this was the first episode that was shot after the now-infamous budget cuts were made. I thought last week's episode was the first under those restrictions, but I can see why Izzy might have thought that this one was made on the cheap. To me, though, the less visual doohickeys there are in a Pushing Daisies, the better. A little bit of snazziness goes a long way with this show, and it leaves more room to actually tell the story. And this week's story was pretty good. ...
