Dollhouse Death Watch (and SCC's been canceled) - The ratings snafu continues!

I love the word "snafu". It's just so funny. Also, it's used in the best line of the already amazingly hysterical: Space Olympics. "And food funding is insufficient!" Hee! So glad they included it on The Lonely Island album.

But we're not here to talk SNL. We're here to talk Whedonverse, of course! Excuse my ass if I needed a reason to laugh. It's not my fault that the proverbial shit is hitting the stupid fan, you know. That's's looking like Dollhouse is going to be a goner. At least, that's what tvbythenumbers thinks. And even more cruel, news circulating that Sarah Connor Chronicles has actually already been unceremoniously canceled. Booooooooo!!! A thousand times boo!

As you probably know by now (since the DDW is going up way late this week) the ratings weren't good last friday. Not good at all. DH dropped another 10% so, that's that. Sarah Connor Chronicles also dropped 12%. I know the whole "people are stupid" argument is a lame one but come on!! SCC rock(ed) the house! And Dollhouse has been getting sorta more enjoyable.

Sadly, I think commenter Jgirl had it right when she said "If Dollhouse makes it to a second season, I'll eat my Faith doll with a side of Spike sauce."

Duh, forgot to add....Do you think Dollhouse will make it to season 2? Leave us a comment and let us know which group you belong:

Tara's Group (the bitter realists) - thinks FOX will show all 13 episodes ordered, but will then cancel it and thus, Dollhouse will not make it to season 2. What can I say? We're jaded.

Michelle's Group (the starry-eyed optimists) - who believe that Dollhouse will show all episodes and even get renewed for a second season.

And speaking of Dollhouse and Death...when the hell is someone going to get the Whedon axe on this show? That damn poll has been on the side of this blog for far too long. Obviously someone knows something about Dominic...because all those votes means he's clearly the goner, but when? When!!?

I'm devastated about the SCC news.

But I voted for Dominic only because I hate the character, not from any inside info.

I weep a mercury tear for SCC. Sob.

While The Sarah Connor Chronicles has had enough time to establish its mythology, and thus has had some truly stellar episodes to which young Dollhouse cannot easily compare, I think Dollhouse has been more consistently good since its inception than the often angst-ridden SCC. That having been said, I'm sad to see either of them go, and I'll be sadder still if it ends up being both.

I voted for Dominic as he isn't in the opening credits. I quite like him though!

I now think Mellie/November will be the first to go though.

I hate this. I love Sarah Conner Chron and really, it's one of the only shows on TV that I look forward to watching.

Not sure how reliable this is but feliciaday just tweeted:

Thx all, to clarify seems like they'll air #12 as the finale and not air my ep #13 at all? So weird

So looks, like it's already been canceled :P

Dammit! And I really wanted to know the deal with Alpha.

Looks like the skeptics won!

Thanks for the shout out, ladies.

Tara said...

Thanks cerrina for the scoop!

I think the skeptics have, for sure, won this sad little game.

And Jgirl, how could i resist?

Vampires is not at all like in the movies or books. Sure, I understand. You are young you have the whole world open to you. You can be anything that you choose if you apply yourself and try hard to work toward that goal. But being a Vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, But how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity? contact the Vampires Lord on his Email:
