I was also excited about ABC developing a television series based on DC Comics' Fables and that the right team won the latest edition of The Amazing Race , baffled about NBC's decision to give the 10 pm weeknight timeslot to Jay Leno , and happy that Bryan Fuller would get a chance in post to add an appropriate ending to Pushing Daisies .

Televisionary is proud to be a member of the TV Blog Coalition. At the end of each week, we'll feature a roundup of content from our sister sites for your delectation. This week, I was absolutely gutted by David Tennant's decision to leave Doctor Who at the end of 2009 and came up with some suggestions as to who could succeed Tennant as the Eleventh Doctor . I also chastised the writers of NBC's The Office for a truly lackluster episode that made me want to rip out my own hair and sadly wasted the potential for a bittersweet departure of temporary cast member Amy Ryan, waxed lyrical about the fantastic third season premiere of 30 Rock , reviewed the DVD release of The 4400: The Complete Series , and was utterly charmed once again by Chuck . All that and my thoughts about the awe-inspiring second season finale of AMC's Mad Men .

This week, I once again fell under the spell of Pushing Daisies and its goose down goodness , but wished that more people were actually tuning in to watch this winsome series before it gets prematurely culled by ABC. I also genuinely enjoyed this past week's episode of The Office (sadly, a more and more rare feat), took a look at the promo for Season Five of Lost , reviewed the upcoming DVD release for Doctor Who: The Infinite Quest , and offered my thoughts on the penultimate episode of Mad Men (for this season, anyway) and the latest kick-ass installment of Chuck .
