The bad news: Fox will pull “Dollhouse” from Fridays during November sweeps, sources tell Entertainment Weekly’s Michael Ausiello.
The better news: Ausiello's sources also say Fox will air two episodes of “Dollhouse” back-to-back on Friday nights in December.
I believe "Dollhouse" makes a much better lead-in for "Dollhouse" than "Brothers" or "'Til Death."
Fox execs have indicated they intend air all 13 season-two “Dollhouses” ordered despite its continued poor ratings in the network’s Friday Death Slot.
I asked Ausiello what might be airing on Fox Friday in November. He said he had no idea, but offered repeats of the doll-free “House” as a guess. “House” is Fox’s top-rated scripted show, so I’d judge that a good guess.
New “Dollhouse” installment 2.4 airs this Friday. The screener I just received indicates that 2.5 will air Friday, Oct. 30 -- but that episode may now be delayed to December since Oct. 30 is the first Friday of sweeps.
