Update: Dollhouse ratings tank again, hit season low: drops 20% from last episode; Smallville ties ABC for third place, hits season high…

Update: Promo for December epis, Summer! 2.5 The Public Eye, 2.6 The Left Hand:

Update: Just caught last night’s Dollhouse ‘Belonging’ on FoxonDemand. Have to agree with SciFiWire (link below) it was the best of the season so far. Sadly Joss aired absolute dreck in his first few episodes this season and has now lost the eyeballs. Next time you get a golden chance from a network and are brought back from the dead use it wisely!

Last night was supposed to be one of the ‘good’ episodes too, per SciFiWire..Kind of sucks that Summer has not even made her first appearance yet and cancellation is in the air, but Joss wasted his first few epis this season (ESPECIALLY the breast feeding epi, ugh!) and now Dollhouse ratings are in the tank..

THR Live Feed:

(…)In its final episode before its sweeps hiatus, “Dollhouse” (2.1 million, 0.8) was down 20% in the demo from its last episode two weeks ago.I’m hesitant to make any declarations about the fate “Dollhouse.” Though I broke the news last season that Fox was renewing the show, that decision surprised me as much as anybody. So keeping in mind that in this new wacky ratings universe broadcast shows drawing under a 2.0 are getting renewals, it is really tough to see “Dollhouse” continuing beyond the current episode order.

Good news for “Smallville” (2.5 million, 1.1) fans, though. The show matched last week’s season high (which also held up in the nationals, btw). That means The CW tied ABC for third place at 8 p.m. (18-49 is not their sales demo, but they still keep an eye on it). Regardless of the network’s mixed feelings about “Smallville,” any show that gets the network out of fifth place among the industry’s standard measurement is tough to ignore. So after climbing significantly to reach season highs for two weeks in a row, does that mean it’s time to update The Live Feed’s TV Series Survival Status Report? I think so…..

FOX pulls Dollhouse off air for November (sweeps)…

dollhouse-cast

They shoot horses don’t they? Sorry but Joss’ talents are IMO better used elsewhere (anywhere!). If TSCC wasn’t good enough for renewal with ratings and DVR FAR AND AWAY above Dollhouse to date this season, then Dollhouse isn’t good enough to be on the air. They should’ve killed Dollhouse and pushed TSCC back to air in Dollhouse’s slot, TSCC was way too dark for the early hour FOX had it on…..(disclaimer, I am one of those rabid TSCC fans! but I am a Firefly fan too! not sure WTH FOX expects to do about us, they must figure they are screwed as either way we’re pixxed, lol! They don’t get it is the QUALITY of the show, the WRITING, the CAST, the PREMISE, not just that it is Joss! TSCC and Firefly were worlds better , universes better! Maybe someone can get Josh Friedman and Joss Whedon to work together on something and then that network/cable channel can have all the scifi fans in one group, lol)

And they screwed Summer Glau here a bit, they ran a promo saying three weeks to Summer’s Dollhouse episodes and now they aren’t going to air those until after November?!

SciFiWire has rounded up the dish:

Fox can’t seem to make up its mind about Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse. On the one hand, it renews it despite some of the lowest ratings ever. Then it buries it on Friday night, where its ratings continue to plummet before stabilizing. Then it decides to air all 13 season-two episodes once it’s clear a lot of people are watching it on DVRs.

But now comes word that it’s pulling it from the schedule entirely during the all-important month of November, the so-called “sweeps” period when the network tries to boost ratings to set its advertising rates.

Entertainment Weekly‘s Michael Ausiello tweeted the news first:

@EWAusielloFiles Exclusive: Hearing FOX will bench DOLLHOUSE for November sweeps and air back-to-back eps on Friday night in December….

Then the FutonCritic chimed in:

Network sources have confirmed Friday entries “Brothers,” “‘Til Death” and “Dollhouse” will all go on hiatus after their October 23 airings. A rebroadcast of “House’s” two-hour season premiere will sub in for the night on October 30 with additional repeats of “House” and “Bones” taking over for the rest of the month. “Dollhouse” will then return with back-to-back originals starting at 8:00/7:00c on December 4, 11 and 18.

This sounds a lot like Fox has decided to burn off the new episodes it just ordered…

Sounds to me like the suits at FOX are trying to protect Dollhouse from EPIC FAIL during sweeps after which they would be FORCED to cancel it. Unreal. What is the deal, why are they holding this loser up? Whose zoomin who?

Update: FOX Exec Preston Beckman agrees he is an a**hole; TSCC – the machine aspires to be human; Dollhouse – the human is reduced to a machine

tsccbanner

Update: 10/16 SciFiWire picked up one of the THR Beckman quotes around the Dollhouse 13 episode pickup I had not seen before.

So word from Joss is that prxck Reilly (who hated TSCC and made nasty comments about we TSCC fans at the announcement it wasnt being picked up) called Joss with the AWFUL rating of S2 premiere and the first thing he told Joss was Dont worry we are airing all 13. Yeah cuz Reilly clearly has a hard on for Dollhouse and hated TSCC.

Could not be more crystal clear. But in case it wasnt Preston admits he is an axxhole and whines about Joss fans giing him shxt. Frak the studio execs, they suck.

(…)”If you cancel it, you’re an asshole; if you renew it and then don’t put it back on, you’re an asshole,” he said. “I’m still paying for ‘Terminator.’ ‘Dollhouse’ has a small rabid fan base that in the world of social media seems bigger than it is. We gave them another season knowing full well we were going to burn in hell if we pulled it.”

Great comment on SciFiWire from a fan:

By ants97 at 1:48 PM ON 10/16/09

you see that excuse would actually hold some credence if they hadn’t cancelled tscc which gained better live numbers, better dvr numbers, better dvd sales and has a much larger and more rabid fan base than the 5 dolhhouse guys over at whedonesque. I mean would the dollhouse fans hire a mobile billboard or cinema screen time to get their show back on the air, no they’ll go and re watch tru calling. No it’s all down to the fact that dollhouse is now dirt cheap to make and fox had no other shows to air on a friday as seen by the 2 comedy shows dollhouse has been paired with. The fans excuse is just a pathetic attempt to garner favour with the sci fi community after it lost them after cancelling firefly and tscc amongst others. When they cancel fringe this season let them see what pathetic excuse them come up with for that one.

I want my TSCC.

tscc

Yep. TSCC all the way baby. As the Cameron/John storyline became more romantic, FOX seemed wigged by it, but they clearly have no problem dressing a grown woman as a Barbie and making her a personal robot. Huh.
