Dollhouse got renewed. I'm happy about that, but also very, very sad because the news was that Fox was leaning towards renewing either DH or Terminator. Obviously, I would have much preferred T:SCC even though I do love DH. I adore T:SCC. In my opinion, it's the best show on television right now and, oh, it's just so sad because it's brilliant tv. Ah well. But yay for Dollhouse and more Enver Gjokaj.

ETA:!! AAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! Castle and Better Off Ted were renewed. Yay, yay, yay, yayyers!!!!!!!!!! These are two of my new favorite shows. So very happy about that. Also thrilled about Lie To Me being renewed. It still has problems and kinks that need to be worked out, but I really do love it and Tim Roth is just, ooh, marvelous.

That leaves T:SCC (still a long shot, but not canceled ... yet, sigh). And, hmm, so they DID renew Scrubs. I do love this show, but it had SUCH a fantastic finale, I don't know. I'll still watch it, but I kinda wish they hadn't renewed it. The entire season was a wrap-up to a series finale, so it feels kinda weird. Hmm.

Oh, yeah, and there was this 'Doctor Who' news ... )

Non-fandom-specific related. I DO NOT understand why people do not realize that any reaction/comment about spoilers/an episode BEFORE the cut is a spoiler. I've been casually spoiled about two significant things twice in the last week because based on the comment (and reading that poster's journal regularly), I knew exactly what happened. Plus, huge, emotional responses -- even without specifics -- SPOIL viewers who haven't seen stuff yet. It's just ... sigh, frustrating. If you're going to talk about a show, your strong emotional reaction, or confirm a supposition you've made countless times actually playing out BEFORE THE CUT? You're spoiling.

Bottom-line, Dollhouse really does kick ass. It's such a shame that it will most likely be canceled because it really is turning out to be quite an excellent show. Sure the two leads (Eliza Dushku and Tamoh Penikett) are by far the weakest links, but neither of them is horrible. They are both good (with Penikett being better than Dushku), with enough moments of great here and there (with Penikett delivering more than Dushku) to make them work. Still, despite their lack of OMYGOD!greatness, the rest of the cast is SO FRICKIN' PHENOMENAL that they make up for it. And the best continues to be Enver Gjokaj as Victor. This guy is just amazing. If the show does get canceled, if there is any justice in casting, he WILL get something else. And whatever he gets? I'm there. He is AWESOME!!!

There were people fighting on me. )

Caught up on some more shows that I missed whilst my four-day 12-hour shift weekend happened.

Quickly, and no spoilers: Castle remains adorable and enjoyable and just all-out awesome.

The ratings are in for Dollhouse and Terminator: Behold the glory!!
Predictions of Dollhouse getting crushed did not come to pass. The much-anticipated sixth episode finally arrived and performed similarly to last week when it had 4.3 million and a 1.6 rating with 18-49s. Last night it had 4.13 million and a 1.5/5 (rating/share) with adults 18-49. It doesn’t look like either the basketball or the the Battlestar Galactica finale (and we probably won’t see its numbers until Tuesday) had much of an impact on Dollhouse.

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles actually added viewers from last week when it averaged 3.5 million and a 1.2/4 with adults 18-40 to 3.65 million and a 1.3/5 last night.
Oh, I'm so, so excited about this. By improving on rating again, it's beginning to look like they actually have have a shot at surviving. Please, please, please, please!!!!

Right now, Monday and Friday nights are THE best nights for television, in my opinion. Monday has the comedy racket down wonderfully with The Big Bang Theory and How I Met Your Mother, while Friday has the drama hitting all cylinders with Dollhouse and Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles (not to mention how good Friday Night Lights is once more). Below, a looooooooong ramble on how awesome both DH and T:SCC are.

Spoilers for 'Dollhouse' -- especially the last episode. )

Oh, 'Terminator' how I love you so!! )
arabian: (TV)
Woohoo!! I'm quite, quite, quite happy with who is playing Alpha on Dollhouse (Sigh, haven't watched the new episode yet, working my 12-hour shifts Friday, Sat, Sun this weekend, so please don't spoil me for the episode in replies, thanks!)
