Some bad news for you Dollhouse fans (myself included).
Friday night's season premiere - after its surprise renewal following its low-rated first season - debuted to an abysmal 2.56 million viewers - the lowest-ever rated episode for the series. (As a point of reference, the season 1 premiere had 4.7 million viewers, which while low, looks pretty good by comparison).
The only consolation? Pretty much all of Friday's TV bombed. Also on FOX, the series premiere of the much maligned Brothers grabbed an also pathetic 2.82 million viewers (though, you might notice, still managed to beat Dollhouse, which makes me cry inside).
Smallville was also waaaay down on The CW (and its new Friday timeslot) with just 2.5 million viewers (though the CW points out that this is still an improvement over their previous Friday night lineup) as was Law & Order on NBC, with just 6.29 million viewers.
You may recall that Fox initially renewed Dollhouse on the strength of its DVR numbers, but frankly, even with those, the series is still likely in trouble. Better start that "Save Dollhouse" campaign back up pronto...
