Friday Ratings: Weak Return for Dollhouse

Attention Dollhouse producers - get Summer Glau on quick! Had I not known that Dollhouse premiered last Friday, I would have assumed by the program’s numbers that it was still in repeats. Unfortunately, the Joss Whedon-created series made its return with the lowest demos for any original that evening. (It’s lead-in - Brothers—didn’t fare much better.) To make matters worse, the FOX drama also pulled in smaller numbers than several repeats.
