Dollhouse Swept Out of Sweeps

Dollhouse: Did I fall asleep?

TV Gods: No, but you'll be taking a permanent dirt nap soon enough.


Fox is preparing for its all-important November sweeps party (a time of year where advertisers put ratings under a microscope and networks pull out all the stops) and Dollhouse isn't invited.


The network won't be airing Dollhouse in November, replacing the sci-fi drama from cult-hit-maker Joss Whedon with repeats of Bones and House on Friday nights. Fox will burn off the rest of Dollhouse's season by airing back-to-back episodes in December in the show's usual death time slot. Stating the obvious, this does not bode well for Dollhouse.


Fox previously said it wouldn't cancel Dollhouse before its 13-episode Season Two order, and they're holding up their end of the bargain so far. But beyond that baker's dozen is a big, shiny cancellation axe just waiting to be dropped. Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles fans, feel free to scream in frustration right about... now.


Let's hope Joss is at least given enough time to wrap up his story. To tide you Whedonites over, check out this Firefly homage from a sneak peek at ABC's Castle.
