FOX Releases Midseason Schedule...

...and Joss Whedon fans are going to be very very angry.


The network is slotting new show Dollhouse on Fridays at 9PM (commonly referred to as the Friday Death Slot) beginning February 13th. Also moving to Fridays and leading in for Dollhouse is the low-rated, but recently renewed Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.


If you haven't yet seen the latest Dollhouse preview, check it out here. This show deserves a fighting chance, but I feel like it's already the next Firefly before it's even started (I mean, seriously, it's premiering on Friday the 13th)...


Other scheduling news (Remember, this all begins between January and February 2009):


-Hole in the Wall (which many thought canceled) will turn up on Sundays.


-House is moving to Mondays and will be leading in for 24.


American Idol gets its Tuesday slot (beginning January 13th) and will be paired with Fringe, which will be huge for Fringe.


-Wednesday will be the Idol results show and new drama Lie to Me, starring Tim Roth.


-Bones will be moving to Thursdays at 9. Hell's Kitchen will precede it.

Ugh. Lame as Eliza Dushku is, I had hopes for Dollhouse... It's Whedon's own fault for doing another show for Fox though. I mean come on.

Haha, I'm angry but not surprised at all. Will Joss Whedon ever learn? Fox is not the way to go

Ok I am sorry but I would love to swear right now!!!!!!!!! This is ridiculous. I had read an article that said that Joss was beaing treated well by FOX apparently NOT!!!!! Well I guess that we can't expect Dollhouse to be more than a half a season... that sucks

He needs to move to NBC or something. Or go to cable... His shows would do well on FX. Come on Joss, when are you gonna learn??

Stupid! Stupid! Stupid! Fox is full of itself. Not only are they putting Joss' show on at 9 but they are moving Terminator??? What the heck? Sometimes I have no clue about this station. Do they even use the thing called a brain when they make their schedules?

What boggles the mind is the fact that house is leading for 24. House has no business doing that, it is one of the highest rated shows on fox, as well as 24, they should be covering for the likes of terminator and dollhouse. My god, these people are stupid.
Also, why is the slot the death slot? I mean ghost whisperer does well in that slot(is THAT the problem?).

Ridiculous.
This show has real promise too. Joss should be fishing at other networks.

Moving Bones again is stupid! It was doing fine on Tuesdays..even better on Wednesdays now. But Thursday!? Come on FOX you really think people are going to give up Grey's Anatomy or CSI:? I can only record 2 shows at a time with my DVR...sorry to say that Bones won't make the cut. At least they're smart enough to put the shows up their website.
Poor Joss, all his shows get the bums rush before they even get to start. I didn't even know about Dollhouse! Let's get away from FOX huh Joss?

Dollhouse really had something going for it... is this over before it even started? The preview looked amazing (not a surprise), and members of the cast have worked well together before. Poor Eliza, poor Joss. Poor us.

1. this show sounds really cool and we all know it will be witty and smart becausae joss is writing it. i hope it does well, even with fox basically trying to make it die.2. WHY ARE THEY MOVING BONES!?!? i love this show. i started watching it because of david boreanaz of course haha but have really come to love it and to see it lose out to grey's anatomy (which i also love, its like being between a rock and a hard place) would be really sad. pleassee pleassee i hope bones doesnt lose so much ratings that it would be canceled becuase of fox's stupid schedule agggh

We have been waiting for a another Joss Whedon show forever. I don't what night it's on, I'm watching it, and so should anyone else who considers themselves a fan. Plently of really good shows have made on Fridays. It the show does really well maybe they'll move to a better night. X-Files was on Fridays for at least 2 years, gained a cult following, and got moved to Sunday. Stranger things have happened, that's all I'm saying. Oh, and Friday the 13th could be good luck for someone like Whedon.
