It seems hope is not yet lost.
Dollhouse renewal talks are ongoing. That Fox didn’t simply slam the door is better news than I expected.
The DVR numbers are encouraging, and DVD pre-orders are already setting a startling pace. The Stability Index Rating is one of the highest in network TV today. Plus, the show is cheaper to produce than many of the others (and the licensing fee goes to a sister company in 20th Century Fox).
Fox has picked up Human Target, and pairing Dollhouse with this on Monday nights could lift the show out of the ratings doldrums inherent in a Friday night time slot. Reports suggest that this idea is being kicked around the table.
I’m not uncrossing my fingers yet or anything… but I feel like there’s more hope than there was.
