Viewers Ignored "Dollhouse" Premiere

Posted: February 14th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Viewers Ignored "Dollhouse" PremiereSubmit Comment
The Friday night slot for TV shows has always been known as the Death Slot, and the series premiere of Joss Whedon's "Dollhouse" fell victim to it just like many other shows before it. "Dollhouse" was seen by just 4.7 million viewers on Friday night, below even the network's modest expectations for the series.

The new show was beaten in the 9 pm hour by ABC's "Supernanny" (8.5 million viewers) and is the lowest-rated drama series premiere on a major broadcast network this season, aside from NBC's now-defunct "Crusoe."

"Dollhouse" was paired with the mid-season return of "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles," which moved from its previous Monday-night timeslot, and that show also saw its ratings fall: 3.7 million viewers. "Terminator" came in third place in the hour and hit a series low (by 27 percent).

"Terminator" beat NBC's "Howie Do It," but not by much. Both CBS' "Ghost Whisperer" (8.9 million) and ABC's "Wife Swap" (4.3 million) did better.

i dunno...theres been worse piles of puke on the boob tube, hell it lasted longer then i thought it would, im a huge terminator fan but not a follower of the show, but im sure its not that bad, its no heroes...(yeah yeah obviously people hate heroes..) still good writing though

The premise of "The Sarah Connor Chronicals" is lame. Nobody in their right mind wants to see a female terminator...with clothes on.

Tsk, tsk..Networks and Whedon. Firefly 2.0?

Dollhouse and TSCC both need to get terminated. TSCC is without a doubt one of the worst TV shows I've ever seen. Awful. bad acting, dialogue, sh*tty VFX, everything. The original Knight Rider blows this away. Hell, Simon and Simon blow TSCC away.

Actually TSCC is a decent show. The first season was good, the second season failed because the networks wanted it more episodic. Third season should be once again good as it's more of an arc. I can't speak for Dollhouse but it's something I've been eager to see. Simply because it is Whedon, and anything he does is great.

It premiered on a Friday night. It was destined to fail.

TWO GOOD SHOWS THAT WILL BE IN THE SCRAPPER BEFORE LONG...THAT'S WHAT FOX DOES...DOLLHOUSE HAS PROMISE BUT WON'T GET A CHANCE TO SPREAD ITS WINGS...TERMINATOR IS QUITE GOOD AND JUST CAN'T BUY A BREAK...BUT SOMEHOW, THE LACK-OF-COMMON-SENSE ADVENTURES OF "HEROES" CONTINUES...WAY TO GO, FOX...THANK GOD THEY DIDN'T GET THEIR CLUMSY ON "WATCHMEN". IF IT WASN'T FOR "FAMILY GUY", THEY WOULD BE THE MOST POINTLESS COMPANY IN ENTERTAINMENT...BUT THEY ARE CLOSE TO POINTLESS NOW, THANKS TO HANNITY AND O'REILY...WHO ARE STILL ON THE AIR FOR GOD KNOWS WHAT f*ckIN' REASON...AND ALSO THANK YOU FOX...FOR f*ckIN UP MUSIC WITH IDOL!!

Eliza Dushku just seems to have fallen off, she really hasnt done anything since Bring It On and Wrong Turn. I vote she gets naked, like fully and then that should save her career.

i hope the show fails, so that dushku can get to work being what she was born to be....my love slave
