Dollhouse renewed?

An interesting development at Fox, the network of secrets ("24" and "Fringe") and lies ("Lie to Me"):
Although executives are still screening pilots and finalizing the fall lineup, which will be announced to advertisers in New York City on Monday, sources say that there is a movement afoot to renew "Dollhouse."
LA Times

and MSNBC Business Insider TVbythenumbers

I thought this show was dead. What the hell is going on?

Re: Dollhouse renewed?

FOX doesn't have much in the pipeline for next fall that's guaranteed to do any better. Chances are they'll just get something else that will just repeat Dollhouse's performance. I can see it, although I'm dubious.

Good. TV is better off with more Eliza Dushku on it.

Apparently so.

Cancel Firefly and Wonderfalls but keep this going? Whatever--I'll take it.

Re: Dollhouse renewed?

No I'll take more Wonderfalls than this horribly acted show.

Fox has completely lost their minds. House reruns would get twice the viewers for $0.

Yet again Fox acts insanely stupid.

Re: Dollhouse renewed?

it's sad that the biggest surprise Dollhouse can manage comes from Fox renewing it. IMHO.

too bad they can't just renew firefly instead? that show was far better...

Re: Dollhouse renewed?

Holy shit, this is apparently official. I am ****ing shocked. The season finale got 2.75 million viewers!!! How the hell can this be renewed!!! Jeez!!! This is completely insane. Of course with this drastic slashed budget I really wonder how the show will fare...

Re: Dollhouse renewed?

Which is why you should be excited. Because it's not good tv vs. bad tv. It's good tv vs. no tv.

Under 3M viewers for the season finale and a demo that even the CW would turn up its nose at. Unbelievable. This show is not going to "find an audience." The audience has already sampled and rejected it. It's got nowhere to go but down.

Joss Whedon has photos of Rupert Murdoch in bed with a live boy, dead girl and menagerie of farm animals. That is the only explanation.

Huh? They're not gonna air a test pattern during that time period (tho given the ratings, it might prove competitive.)

The only downside to this is if Fox had something promising that now would not even get a shitty Friday night timeslot as a tryout. But check out the crap they have to choose from. (Oh no, we won't get the show about the horny girl werewolves!) Human Target is the only halfway interesting one, and that's already a lock.

There's no doubt about it, renewing Dollhouse is an act of existential despair. And I thought NBC was sad.

From what I've been hearing Fox wants to continue with the Sci-Fi Fridays lineup. Dollhouse had high online viewing and DVRing.

That gal in your avatar's show did much better in its season finale, on Friday night, on Fox, yet got the axe. And DVRing doesn't count - they all zap the ads! I stand by my farm animals theory.
