Production

The idea for the series was born as Marc Cherry and his mother were watching a news report on Andrea Yates. Prior to Desperate Housewives, Cherry was best known for producing and writing episodes of Touchstone Television’s hit comedy series The Golden Girls and its successor The Golden Palace. In addition he had created or co-created three sitcoms: The Five Mrs. Buchanans, The Crew and Some of My Best Friends, none of which lasted longer than a year. Initially Cherry had a hard time getting any television network interested in his new series – HBO, CBS, NBC, Fox, Showtime, and Lifetime all turned his offer down.[5] Finally, two new executives at ABC, Lloyd Braun and Susan Lyne, chose to greenlight it.[6] Shortly thereafter, Disney had both Braun and Lyne fired, following their approval of another new drama series: Lost.[7] Andrea Pia Yates (born July 2, 1964) of Houston, Texas, United States, committed the filicide of her five young children on June 20, 2001 by drowning them in the bathtub in her house. ...

The ABC executives weren’t initially satisfied with the name of the new show, suggesting Wisteria Lane and The Secret Lives of Housewives instead,[8] but on October 23, 2003, Desperate Housewives was announced by ABC, presented as a prime time soap opera created by Charles Pratt Jr. of Melrose Place fame, and Marc Cherry, who declared the new show to be a mix of Knots Landing and American Beauty.[9] While Cherry continued his work on the show, Pratt was credited as executive producer for the pilot episode only, remaining linked to the show as a consulting producer during the first two seasons. is the 296th day of the year (297th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Daily’s previous work include writing for the cartoon series Rugrats as well as for Frasier. Also joining Cherry, Perkins and Daily for the fourth season were John Pardee and Joey Murphy, who had been with the series since the beginning.[17] Both had also worked on Cherry’s previous show The Crew in 1995, as well as on the sitcom Cybill.

For the second season of Desperate Housewives the street went through some heavy changes. Among the most noticeable of these changes was the removal of a church façade and a mansion in order to make room for Edie’s house and a park.[20][21]


Opening sequence

The initial idea for the show opening sequence was Cherry’s own, and after having asked sixteen companies to come up with suggestions how to best realize it, the producers finally hired Hollywood-based yU+co to provide the final version.[22] According to the yU+co’s official website, the idea behind the sequence is “to evoke the show's quirky spirit and playful flaunting of women’s traditional role in society”.[23] The images featured are taken from eight pieces of art, portraying domesticity and male-female relations through the ages.[24] ...


The first image shows Lucas Cranach the Elder’s painting Adam and Eve. A snake passes an apple to Eve before another, larger, apple, with the words ‘Desperate Housewives’ written on it, falls on Adam. Then follows the tomb paintings of Queen Nefertari of Egypt, the Great Royal Wife of Ramesses the Great. An animation of Queen Nefertari is seen standing within her tomb being overwhelmed by what appear to be countless children surrounding her. Next appearing is The Arnolfini Portrait by Jan van Eyck painted in 1434 – Giovanni Arnolfini is seen eating a banana and throwing the skin on the floor, leaving it for his wife to sweep it away. Portrait of Lucas Cranach the Elder at age 77 by Lucas Cranach the Younger (1550), at the Uffizi Gallery, Florence Lucas Cranach the Elder (Lucas Cranach der Ältere, 1472 – October 16, 1553) was a German painter and printmaker in woodcut and engraving. ...

The painting American Gothic by Grant Wood from 1930 then follows, and the farmer is shown smiling as he is touched on the chin by a pin up as his apparently disapproving wife frowns in front of a tin of canned sardines. The can appears on a kitchen work surface when the World War II poster Am I Proud! is shown, depicting a woman holding cans and jars including Andy Warhol’s Campbell's Soup Cans. The soup can then falls into the hand of a man featured in pop art work by Robert Dale, Couple Arguing and Romantic Couple. After the woman in this pictures is seen crying and giving her male companion a black eye, the image folds away, and the tree from Cranach’s painting reappears with the snake wrapped around it and the four main characters Bree, Lynette, Susan and Gabrielle appearing under the tree, each catching an apple.

The premiere year

The show was the biggest success of the 2004–2005 television season, being well-received by both critics and viewers. The pilot episode had 21.3 million viewers making it the best new drama for the year, the highest rated show of the week, and the best performance by a pilot for ABC, since Spin City in 1996.[70] The American Broadcasting Company (ABC) is an American television network. ...

Along with Lost, Desperate Housewives was credited to have turned around ABC’s declining fortunes.[71] Many critics agreed to Cherry’s initial comparison to the popular black comedy film American Beauty,[72] while its themes and appeal to female viewers was compared to those of the award winning TV show Sex and the City,[73] and the mysteries was said to resemble those of David Lynch’s classic TV series Twin Peaks.[74] In its first review, USA Today proclaimed the show to be “refreshingly original, bracingly adult and thoroughly delightful” and naming it to be “sort of Knots Landing meets The Golden Girls by way of Twin Peaks.[75] LOST redirects here. ...

Following the initial success of the show, the term “desperate housewives” became a cultural phenomenon. This warranted “real life desperate housewives” features in TV shows, including The Dr. Phil Show,[76] and in magazines.[77][78] Among the more prominent names to declare themselves fans of the show were Oprah Winfrey,[79] who also dedicated an episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show to her visit at the film set; and the First Lady of the United States, Laura Bush, who, in a speech during a dinner with White House Correspondents' Association on April 30, 2005, stated “Ladies and gentlemen, I am a desperate housewife”, referring to the show.[80] Dr. Phil is a talk show hosted by Dr. Phil McGraw. ...

The show ended up being the fourth most watched in the United States during the 2004-2005 season, with 23.7 million viewers each week.[81]


Later years

For its second year, the show still maintained its ratings – with 22.2 million viewers, it reclaimed its position as the number four most watched show.[82] However, several critics started to notice a declining quality of the show’s script,[83][84] and USA Today’s Robert Bianco suggested that the part of the show getting “less good” was that showrunner Cherry had left much of the series writing in the hands of others.[85] Mid through the season executive producer Michael Edenstein left the show due to conflicts with Cherry and in May 2006, just a couple of weeks prior to the second season finale, so did Tom Spezialy.[86] After the end of the season Cherry would agree to the second years’s weaker script and also agreed that it had been a mistake to let go too much of the show. He now stated that he was back full time, claiming that both he and the writing staff had learned from their mistakes.[87][88][89]


The critics generally agreed on the improved quality for the third year,[90][91][92] but the overall ratings fell notably from previous seasons. But due to Marcia Cross’ pregnancy, the actress had to leave the show on maternity leave, but with six episodes left of season three, it looked like the show ratings would be down with over 25% since the premiere year.[93] However, for the last season three episodes, the rating turned somewhat, and the season ended up with 17.5 million viewers, falling from number four to number ten on the list of most watched shows.[94] Notable, however, was that the show’s rating among viewers age 18–24 increased from the previous season.[95]


For its fourth season, the series has proved to have staying power[96]. While most shows begin losing steam both quality and popularity wise by the 4th season[citation needed], the show proved otherwise. The series has thus far averaged 18.9 million viewers for its first 10 episodes aired before the writers strike put the show on halt. Ratings peaked in Episode 9 where 20.6 million viewers tuned in to see the heavily marketed tornado episode hit Wisteria Lane. The show has once again moved back up into the top 5 highest rated programs so far in the 2007-2008 season, being the #1 ABC drama and beating popular medical drama Grey's Anatomy for the first time in 2 years[97]. It also became for the first time the #1 scripted show, beating CSI[98].
