A third season of “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” just got a little less likely.
The series, which already plunged 43% from its season-one premiere to its season-two debut, dipped something like 27% below its previous series low, according to James Hibberd’s Live Feed over at the Hollywood Reporter.
(Ironically, last night’s Friday the 13th episode, scripted by “Andromeda” vets Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller and featuring Shirley Manson’s T-1001 going all Cylon at a troublesome factory, may have been the most compelling installment of the series to date.)
“Dollhouse,” which followed “Terminator,” improved mightily on its lead-in but still scored the second-worst series-premiere numbers of the season, after the Friday-night debut of NBC’s “Crusoe.” (Hopefully Fox will remember to remember that a far different ratings story would have emerged had “Dollhouse” been given “Fringe’s” post-“American Idol” berth – instead of the channel’s infamously deadly-to-sci-fi Fox Friday Death Slot.)
“Dollhouse” did perform better than the premiere of “Canterbury’s Law,” which occupied its timeslot last season.
Preliminary 18-49 Friday ratings:
2.4 Ghost Whisperer
1.5 Wife Swap
1.2 Howie Do It
1.1 Friday Night Lights
