One thing I’ll never completely understand is TV programming and why some shows make it when others that are just as worthy, if not more so, don’t. Case in point: Fox TV’s “Dollhouse” and “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.”
We heard late last week that “Dollhouse” was being given a 13-episode second season with the caveat that Joss Whedon had to agree to a drastically reduced budget. Then came the sad (for this Woman anyway) news via EW.com that “Sarah Connor” would not be returning come the fall.
According to Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly, “I think it had a nice little run. It was a good show. It was not an either or [with ‘Dollhouse’]. We did see it tailing off a bit [in the ratings]. It had a nice creative core, but, ultimately, we made the bet on ‘Dollhouse’, so that’s it for [‘Sarah Connor’]… We make no apologies. We gave it a lot of support and some consistent scheduling. We tried and thought it was time to move on.”
Can’t say I agree with him, but move on we shall.
