Fox won't air final Dollhouse episode

Uh-oh… more bad news for fans of Dollhouse. Fox e-mailed out the highlights from its upcoming May schedule, and one thing appears to be missing: the final episode of Joss Whedon's new action show.

Possible series finale for Fox's cyborg show does little to improve chances at renewal with flat numbers; Dollhouse matches season low.

Terminator finale numbers don't help chances

Fan favorite Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles had its last shot to prove to Fox that it was worth renewing and the fans came out in droves! Well, not really. The season finale performed on par with the rest of the series, which doesn't bode well for a series pickup.

Dollhouse finale ratings tank

It's not supposed to happen like this. Season finales are supposed to be the big send-off for shows, roping in the audience that's watched for the past few months for one grand party. But the Dollhouse finale on Friday did the exact opposite.

Last week's episode hit a series low in the ratings -- will Fox stick with Joss Whedon's sci-fi drama, or is it time to put Dollhouse on deathwatch?

Is It Time to Start the Dollhouse Death Clock?

Fox took a leap of faith last year when it opted to keep the struggling Dollhouse on the air despite the show's middling ratings. Show creator Joss Whedon pitched an overall vision of Season Two (and beyond) to executives, and they must've liked what they saw because Whedon still has a show. But there is no possible way they are liking what they see now.

Network will let Joss do what he does best with season two of rejuvenated show.

Fox Staying out of Dollhouse, Whedon's Kitchens

Let's recap Dollhouse's turbulent first season: The show gets announced with Eliza Dushku and Joss Whedon reuniting, fans hail it as the next big thing. Word leaks that there is trouble on set, the original pilot is scrapped, fans begin to worry. Studio executives ask for some retooling, which includes going in a more standalone episode direction, fans worry more. The first episodes come out, critics groan, fans suffer.

Review: Joss Whedon's Dollhouse

Dollhouse's pilot isn't going to blow away anyone who isn't a die-hard Joss Whedon (creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly) fan, but the potential for a very strong season is definitely here. In fact, some Joss fans may not even like it right away as most of Joss' trademarks are absent--there's almost no witty back-and-forth dialogue and the show seems to be exhibit Joss' more serious side.

Joss Whedon's ambitious show is now on Fox's good side despite slumping ratings, poor critical reception.

Dollhouse not in the doghouse?

It's back and forth, back and forth for Joss Whedon's Dollhouse. The sci-fi program has seen its prospects for renewal cover the entire spectrum; it was initially hailed as one of the season's most promising shows, yet failed to become anything close to a ratings hit. But the power of Joss is strong… maybe even miracle strong.

They can be anyone you want. The Dollhouse is a very secret, and very illegal, place where wishes come true. Clients with the right connections and enough money can hire "Actives", people who have been programmed to perfectly fulfill the needs, and desires of their clients. The Actives are people who have chosen, for their own reasons, to surrender their bodies and minds for a five-year stay in the Dollhouse. Now they can be imprinted with any personality, skill, or even muscle memory. They can be the perfect companion, lover, spy, assassin; and when the job is done they forget everything. But something is wrong with the Active called "Echo". No longer just a blank slate waiting for her next assignment, Echo is remembering flashes of the lives that she has lived and the games she has played, and she is starting to wonder just who she really is... Dollhouse is a production of 20th Century Fox Television, Joss Whedon's "Mutant Enemy", and Eliza Dushku's "Boston Diva Productions".moreless
