Dollhouse Is Safe... Ish

Despite disappointing ratings, Fox want you to know that they really will show all of the episodes of Dollhouse's first season. Even though there may be some pre-emption happening at some point.

Fansite Dollverse has gotten confirmation from Fox that the remaining six episodes of Joss Whedon's mindwipe drama will air on April 3rd, 10th, 24th, and May 1st, 8th and 15th, with the show being pre-empted on April 17th by the return of Prison Break. But the site has also been tipped off that the episode on May 15th is also likely to be pre-empted by the series finale of Prison Break, which leads us to wonder when "Epitaph One," Dollhouse's season (and possibly series, given the ratings) finale will air. It can't air the next week, because its timeslot has been filled by the just announced series premiere of medical drama Mental, after all.

However, we're not convinced that any pre-emption will even be happening; yes, Prison Break is getting a two-hour wrap-up episode, but that doesn't seem to be part of the currently scheduled block of episodes, which may already include a couple of episodes beyond the four originally scheduled. Fans may like to complain about Fox messing around with their favorite shows - and with good reason - but this may be a case of pre-emptive worry for no good reason.
