Numbers of Interest - Television Ratings for Friday 9/25/09 - Dollhouse tanks

I had expect some of the buzz over the summer to carry over into actual viewers. Sadly I was mistaken and a cancellation is almost guaranteed.

Fox sucked with Dollhouse getting a measly 1.0 and it's lead-in Brothers also getting 1.0.  Want me to put a positive spin of this? The lead-in sucked, a scifi movie Surrogates came out, Fox barely promoted the show, and perhaps the biggest one: Fox renewed it for a second season. Even with the horrible ratings last season, Fox still renewed the show. We don't know exactly what they were thinking, but all we can do is hope.

ABC did well with repeats of Flash Forward (1.5), Modern Family (1.5), and Cougar Town (1.5) To top that off, 20/20 won to 10 PM timeslot with 2.3.

NBC did ok with Law and Order only getting 1.3, Dateline 1.5, and The Jay Leno Fall getting 1.5. I'm guessing this is the last season of Law and Order with the move to Friday.

CBS won the night as they usually do with Ghost Whisperer winning its timeslot with 2.2, Medium with 2.1, and Numb3rs getting 1.8. I was surprised so many people watched Medium,. There are 2 possibilities. Everyone who watched Medium on Mondays are NBC followed the show to CBS, or people that watched Ghost Whisperer liked Medium. Either way, things are looking up for the show.

The CW was back in the dumps with Smallville getting 1.0. With The Beautiful Life getting canceled yesterday after only 2 episodes, I think it would be smart for the CW to put Smallville in that timeslot though they've already scheduled a Melrose Place encore.

That makes me so sad! Dollhouse has so much potential and endless possibilities on where to go. I really hope it doesn't get cancelled.

I also cannot believe they're redoing Melrose Place. It isn't as if the first one was all that great.

Yeah, Dollhouse is worse than Buffy, Angel, and Firefly, but it's a still a good show and Joss is still a genius.
