Rumor Patrol: Is 'Grey's Anatomy' Killing Hahn? Who's Gay Now? Is 'Daisies' Done? Thiessen to '90210?'

Nothing sucks harder than heading into a weekend with a bunch of nagging, unanswered TV-related questions hanging over your head. Good thing you have me to separate fact from fiction. Here’s a rundown of the rumors du jour — and the truth about them.

Privileged snagged a full-season order. Sadly, this one is fiction. The CW has yet to give the ratings-challenged gem a back-nine pickup, although the net did place an order for two more scripts last night, bringing them to a new grand total of four additional scripts. Hey, every little bit helps!

Pushing Daisies has been axed. Fiction. An ABC insider insists that no final decision has been made re: Daisies. (The net has until mid-January to order more episodes.) But with production set to wrap early next week on the show’s 13th and possibly final episode, there’s little reason to be optimistic. (This also doesn’t bode well.) At least, as EW’s Lynette Rice reported exclusively, if the series bites the dust, Bryan Fuller has said that he’d return to Heroes. Silver lining, kids!

Grey’s Anatomy is killing off Dr. Hahn! I’m 89 percent certain that’s fiction. A promo for next week’s episode showing Callie in tears has led some to conclude that her ex-lover, who made her final appearance in last night’s episode, will be done in off screen. Highly unlikely. Not sure exactly why Callie was crying though. Maybe she’s upset that she had to find out she was a lesbian by reading it in a press release?

One of Kings’ main men is gay! Fact. A major character on NBC’s buzzy midseason drama does come out midway into the premiere. It’s a cool twist, so I’m going to resist the temptation to spoil it and offer this clue instead: The gay in question has just landed a love interest in Michael Arden, best known as Parker Posey’s assistant on ASP-s Return of Jezebel James.

Tiffani Thiessen is doing 90210 2.0! Fiction. Truth be told, I just made the rumor up so I could bring you this piece of exclusive scoop: Thiessen has joined the cast of USA Network’s newly greenlit pilot White Collar. The potential series centers on the relationship between a con man (Chuck‘s Matthew Bomer) and an FBI agent (Carnivale‘s Tim DeKay). Thiessen plays the wife of DeKay’s character.

The show at the center of my latest blind item is Pushing Daisies. Fiction. The Daisies set is the opposite of a nightmare. I’m stunned any of you would even go there. (Additional reporting by Andy Patrick)

    The people who thought it was Pushing Daisies must not have seen them rooting for each other at the Emmys. I guess I can’t blame them for not watching the Emmys

    Isn’t it getting to be fish or cut bait time on several series? Particularly the sophomore shows? I was somewhat surprised Life is showing a Christmas episode next week. I’m guessing with DSM, Pushing Daisies, and Life, my TV watching is about to be cut in half. Looking forward to Friday Night Lights coming back though.

  • Carine

    Damn, I was starting jumping up and down about Privileged. That is so mean of you !

  • brent

    Hmmmm… it’s just been announced that LOST will return at 7pm CST on January 21. That’s a Wednesday. That’s Pushing Daisies slot. What say you, Ausiello??

  • ooyyoo

    what i really want to know is whether or not izzie is crazy. i’ll miss hahn, and her dying in next weeks episode would be an obvious way to close her character up.

  • Virginia

    89% sure Erica is not killed of? Not 100%?

  • swthompson

    I hope the reports of the death of “Pushing Daisies” are greatly exaggerated. I’d rather see “Private Practice” and “Dirty Sexy Money” given their respective pink slips. Given that FOX is going to program the ultra-violent “Terminator” and the anybody’s-guess “Dollhouse” on Fridays– I’d suggest ABC move their reality dreck back against “American Idol” and counterprogram “Daisies” against “Terminator”.

  • MJ

    Callie will definitely be in tears over Erica. NOTHING else would make her lose it like that. *sighs* I hope she’s OK… she’s my favorite character on the show…

  • Cami

    Yay Pushing Daisies people are not divas! I knew it wasn’t poss.

  • James

    The people who thought it was PD obviously are not fans of the show. If they were, they would know everyone on the cast LOVE each other and are the opposite of divas.
    Had a good laugh though reading all thoses “it MUST be PD” posts. Idiots..

  • shadester

    I thik she is just upset that she left. Izzy is not crazy she is just not over Denny.

  • Anna

    The only silver lining I can see if Pushing Daisies is cancelled is if it’s picked up by another network.

  • Sarah

    Moving Pushing Daisies to Friday and schedule it against Terminator would be the worst thing that could happen to the already struggling show (in case it does get the pick-up, which it simply has to!!)
    Friday is the death slot and by moving Terminator and Dollhouse to Friday Fox has once again proven that they have already give up on a show that hasn’t even aired its pilot yet (Dollhouse) and that this will be the last season of Terminator: TSCC as well.

    The sweetest & quirkiest show ever – “Pushing Daisies” – and now ABC may cancel it. Ugh! Networks who can’t put faith in their shows suck! I am a loyal fan of “Daisies” and will miss it terribly if it is axed. Maybe one of the other networks will pick it up if it leaves ABC. Until then, I’ll keep my fingers crossed that ABC will keep this creative, unique show on.
