'Pushing Daisies': Cute and family friendly, to boot
We’re not sure if this qualifies as a tree falling in the woods, but the Family Friendly Programming Forum – a feel-good gambit by the Association of National Advertisers – has named its squeaky-clean faves for its ninth annual Family Television Awards: Pushing Daisies (best new series), Ugly Betty (best comedy), Heroes (best drama), High School Musical 2 (best movie musical), Planet Earth (best miniseries or special), Kyle X (best cable series), and Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader? (best reality show). The forum also singled out HSM’s Zac Efron, Friday Night Lights’ Kyle Chandler, and Betty’s America Ferrera as family-friendly actors and named Chuck’s Zachary Levi as the favorite newcomer. The Forum’s ninth annual awards show (which taped last night) will air Dec. 27 on The CW.
