Joss Whedon's Dollhouse launches Friday, February 13th

That's the headline on Twitter anyway. There is also a rumor that it will be back-to-back with Sarah Conner Chronicles, which is good. But oof, they're both going to be on a Friday and that's not good, people. Not good at all. Might be good for Conner Chron, since it was suffering on Monday against Chuck, but still.

The Hollywood Reporter says:
"The "Dollhouse" shift to Friday is certain to provoke a despondent cry from Whedon fans, especially after having watched "Firefly" wither away on the same night. Fox could have given the series a premiere behind "Idol" before shifting it to Fridays -- something the network has done a few times to boost sampling of new shows. And if that weren't unlucky enough, "Dollhouse" premieres on Friday the 13th."

I've been hesitant to post the trailer the past few days as to not spoiler even my fellow bloggers...but there's really nothing new in here:

By the way, just to cap the dreariness off, there are even more delays. LA Times says this:

"On Thursday, it became obvious that the problems persist. Production on the seventh episode, which is supposed to begin Monday, is being delayed at least a day because the script was in such bad shape, according to a source who requested anonymity. The script for the sixth episode also had big problems, causing production delays that left the cast and crew very frustrated, the source said."

aaand I'm done.

The trailer looks good, but the Friday slot doesn't. Do you realize how many whedonverse actors are on Fox right now?
