Dollhouse Shelved Until December; Cancellation Next?

Well, this sucks! We won't be able to see the Wesley/Faith reunion until December. See the Futon Critic for new Fox broadcast schedule details. I'm beginning to figure out the trustworthiness of network press releases.

Michael Ausiello further speculates at EW.com that the fact that back-to-back episodes will be aired on Friday nights in December does not bode well for the series. Barring a minor miracle, don't be surprised if the series is cancelled after it completes its already-filmed 13 episodes.

Update: Here's part of a comment that Joss Whedon posted at Whedonesque:
"....Howzabout that schedule? Well, I'm not as depressed as everyone else. We weren't about to rock sweeps anyway, and though there's a chilly November, December is CRAZY. It's like an Advent calendar of episodes! We get November to try to spread the word (which I'll be leaning on Fox to do, though it's hard to imagine them doing as good a job as the WhyIWatch guy) and then December is pure gluttony. Plus the episodes line up extremely well in these pairs, and we'll have an absurdly appropriate lead-in......."
Three cheers for Joss' optimism!
