'Dollhouse' Benched in November


'Dollhouse' Benched in November


It looks like the series created by Joss Whedon will not get a nine back episodes order from FOX.

Fresh from the oven news, "Dollhouse" may disappear from the screen next month. In its exclusive report, Michael Ausiello of Entertainment Weekly said that sources are confirming the benching of the Joss Whedon-created show in November.

The series starring Eliza Dushku will be back for December sweeps and FOX will air back-to-back episodes on Friday nights. This looks like a move made only to allow the show to complete the 13-episode order. There is no word yet on what FOX will air in November in replacement of the show.

Since its debut in midseason, "Dollhouse" has not been exactly stellar in rating. However, FOX chose it over "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" to get a second season.

Just this week, Joss Whedon talked about "Dollhouse" number when he was announced as a guest director of "Glee". He wrote, "No, this doesn't mean Dollhouse definitely won't get a back nine. Our numbers mean that! But I kid. Okay, we're not exactly saving all the good stuff for 14-22, but nobody's closed the door."

Update: Futon Critic has obtained the confirmation that FOX will scrap all the Fridays line-up after the October 23 episode. Instead, a re-run of "House M.D." two-hour season premiere will sub in on October 30 with additional repeats of "House" and "Bones" taking over for the rest of the month.

"Dollhouse" will only return on December 4, 11, and 18 with back-to-back originals.
