Stays on Fridays

Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse, which seemed headed to almost certain cancellation just a few days ago after ratings slipped for its final episodes (see "Dollhouse Ends on a Low Point"), has been renewed for another 13 episodes, according to both Hollywood Reporter and Variety. The show is slated to stay in its current Friday night slot.
Whedon’s strong fan base, the potential for DVD sales (the first season DVDs are already announced, see “Dollhouse Discs Street July 28th”), and the opportunity to bring in the show at lower cost to the network were all mentioned as possible reasons for the renewal.
Regardless of the reason, this will be welcome news to the legions of Whedon fans, who follow his work in every medium.
