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

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:

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.

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.

More proof life is not fair: FOX keeps Dollhouse, talks Season 3 and uses DVR ratings as the reason.. after cancelling TSCC which had better DVR ratings …

Update: Notice that FOX is using Summer Glau to draw viewers to Dollhouse a full 3 WEEKS BEFORE her episodes air!! (Baseball yeah but more due to bad ratings IMO)You know what would draw even more viewers? TSCC!!!! Terminator was too damned dark for that early hour. They shouldve shxt canned Dollhouse and moved TSCC back an hour.

Unbelievable. The only good thing I can say is we will get to see Summer Glau’s Dollhouse episodes.

SciFiWire:

The live ratings for Fox’s Dollhouse had leveled off as of the third episode, which aired Friday, but the good news for fans is that new numbers from DVRs show are great and because of that, Fox has decided to air all of the 13 episodes that have been ordered for this season so far.

‘Levelled off’ must mean stopped falling off a cliff .

Who expected that??

Here’s the scoop: The audience for Joss Whedon’s show jumped more than half when factoring in the people who watched it later on DVRs, according to The Hollywood Reporter:

“We’re going to run all the episodes,” Fox scheduling chief Preston Beckman said. “We’re not saying we’re happy with those numbers, or accept them, but we don’t have to overreact.”

Not OVERREACT?? You mean like when you CANCELLED TSCC which had an INTERNATIONAL FAN BASE? Like that you toolz??

Premiere-week DVR data released Monday showed that the second-season “Dollhouse” debut climbed 50% from its very modest base of a 1.0 rating in the adults 18-49 demo. Beckman said DVR results have played a role in the show’s fate, though he wasn’t surprised by the new numbers.

“It’s one of the reasons that we brought ‘Dollhouse’ back; we knew it was DVR-friendly,” Beckman said. “Hopefully we’ll see the overnight ratings increase from week to week. With some shows, you have to look at the bigger picture.”

With SOME SHOWS you look at the DVR numbers? DVR results ‘played a role’ ? Oh frak me man, these people are full of shxt! They frakkin cancelled the WRONG SHOW and REILLY is a tool and we all know it and this is to save face. WhatEVAH! But how can we be even MORE insulting to TSCC fans who mounted an EPIC campaign and had BETTER DVR numbers?

Another big surprise? They’re even contemplating a third season! Fox says it will decide whether to keep the show going after the second season ends. Of course, they still have to decide whether to order the “back nine” episodes of the current season to make up a full 22…
