Hey, remember "Pushing Daisies," that quirky series from "Hannibal" creator Bryan Fuller about a pie maker (Lee Pace) who could bring people back from the dead by touching them? Well apparently a lot of people online do, because Esquire just completed a March Madness style TV Reboot Championship, pitting brilliant-but-canceled shows against each other to see which people most want to come back — and "Pushing Daisies" came out on top, handily defeating Joss Whedon's "Firefly," which had been steam-rolling other competition like "Party Down" and "The Adventures of Brisco County Jr."

Fuller might have had an unfair advantage, though, promising to tweet a tidbit about the upcoming "Hannibal" season premiere if "Pushing Daisies" won.
Now, will ABC pay any attention and bring the show back to life?
