We reported a couple days ago that the critically-lauded but low-rated Pushing Daisies was finally returning to ABC on May 30th. It was suspected that Eli Stone and Dirty Sexy Money would be back as well and we now have confirmation.
Eli Stone, which stars Jonny Lee Miller, Victor Garber and Natasha Henstridge, was cancelled after two short seasons on the air. The last episode to air, “Two Ministers,” was shown on December 30, 2008. The four remaining episodes will be burned off at 10pm on consecutive Saturday nights; June 20th, June 27th, July 4th, and July 11th. The series finale revolves around Eli having a vision and believing that one of his friends will perish in a plane crash.
Dirty Sexy Money, starring Peter Krause, Donald Sutherland and William Baldwin, was also cancelled after two brief seasons. The most recent installment to be broadcast, “The Organ Donor,” was shown way back on December 17, 2008. Money will take over the Saturday 10pm timeslot from Stone and the four unaired episodes (including the preempted Thanksgiving installment) will run on July 18th, July 25th, August 1st, and August 8th.
The series finale of Money is full of surprises. Simon tells Nick why he hates the Darlings and makes a confession about Nick’s father. Lisa decides to write a tell-all book and Karen embarks on a long-overdue relationship.
The second seasons of both Stone and Money are expected to be released on DVD but the release dates haven’t been announced yet.
