Joss Whedon’s new series Dollhouse, which premiered on Friday after the mid-season return of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles in the Friday night “death slot” – failed to meet even Fox’s meager expectations, losing to Supernanny and only scoring 4.7 million 2.0/6 rating. Terminator didn’t fare well either, barely beating Howie Do It with a 3.7m 1.3/5). Hollywood Insider puts a different spin on it though – looking at the increase in viewers over Terminator and that it took in double the female viewers versus its lead-in and scored second among males 18-34. I actually found Dollhouse decent for its first episode – Alias-esque with a bit more SF and a ton of potential for star Eliza Dushku to show off her acting skills in a variety of roles.
