Re: Dollhouse in Trouble?

Dollhouse will debut Fridays @ 9pm - same timeslot as Firefly, if I am not mistaken.

I officially HATE Fox now - that is the straw that broke the camel's back - I am DONE with that station for the rest of my life.

Firefly aired at 8 and John Doe aired at 9 that year.

Well crap. Pretty much dead before it starts, then. Sigh, I wish Whedon had learned his lesson after Firefly.

I wasn't too crazy about this show to begin with, but I'm sorry its not even going to get a chance to prove itself.

Re: Dollhouse in Trouble?

I dont know, I saw that extended commercial/excerpts of Dollhouse MONTHs ago, i think they showed it during some trade show or some such thing. It really did look incredibly mediocre, maybe the show needed 'retooling'?

Re: Dollhouse in Trouble?

SCC is dead no matter what and Kitchen Nightmares is cheap reality which would easily survive on friday nights so why not put Bones & Dollhouse on together for Thursday Nights. FFS if anything you get Dollhouse to air at 8pm to boost SCC since Dollhouse will have a bigger audience to begin with.

Seriously why can't TV exec's never get there timeslots right especially frickin FOX.

The advertisers.

They say what shows they want and what different amounts of money they will pay for air time depending on when it's airing on which day... Which means that some shows will never air in fortunate timeslots and some shows find it difficult to pay for their budget because there's no unconditional faith from the people with money.

Re: Dollhouse in Trouble?

I guess this is Fox's way of getting rid of two sci-fi series they don't really want anymore. I'm sorry, Joss. I hope you learn not to put your faith in Fox again.

I've never understood why they'd want to "get rid of" a show they don't want. The series is being made, and Terminator is also continuing, the money is spent, why would it ever be in their best interest to stick them in a graveyard slot in order to force them off the air? Surely the hope is that the two shows will be good enough to win ratings in that difficult slot. I doubt they will, but I don't see why the people running Fox would feel the need to make the shows fail. If they don't think they're worth showing, why not just cancel production on them now?

Fucking Fox and stupid biased execs. Why is Joss taking this crap from them? Friday night 9pm? Isn't he having some sort of deja vu?

The way FOX treats their Sci Fi shows is almost as bad as Palin becoming President of the United Sates.

I can't figger Fox out either. Why even begin a genre show? They always end up dumping it.

Now i'm convinced that Whedon just needs work desperately or else i can't explain that he works with Fox again after they screwed him so royally on Firefly.
