Dollhouse Opens to Mediocre Numbers
Joss Whedon (Buffy The Vampire Slayer) had one of the most anticipated new shows when Dollhouse was announced last year. But the news since then has only gotten bleaker for the ambitious show. First it slated for a midseason premiere -- instead of opening at the beginning of the season -- and then news came that Fox was putting it on Friday night.
The premiere, which was this past Friday, drew 4.7 million viewers. For a Friday show, that isn't horrible -- but considering most shows fall from their premieres it's not exactly the best news. The possibly cancelled Lipstick Jungle was averages 3+ million on Friday night.
