Dollhouse Cancelled

In a move that should surprise no one, FOX has announced the end of Dollhouse, marking their most recent cancellation of a promising sci-fi show that they banished to the Friday night lineup. I’ll admit that the concept behind Dollhouse was always more exciting than the actual episodes, but I blame a near-complete lack of support from the network for the ultimate quality of the show. After all, they only renewed the show after Joss Whedon proved he could slash the production budget by turning in the never-aired “Epitaph One” episode at the end of season one. Incidentally, that installment is worth the $1.99 at iTunes. I’m disappointed in the cancellation, but at the same time, we all need to admit this was no Firefly.

Oh, that shitty Kelsey Grammer show was cancelled too.

Banished: Hank

Successful man experiences a big career change, moves from the city to the suburbs, and spends more time with his family. This is the¬†premise of Hank, and yes it is also eerily similar to the premise of Back to You, Kelsey Grammer’s last crappy attempt at making another hit. I don’t have much to say other than Grammer will fail every time he tries to re-create the magic of Frasier with a much less talented cast.¬†One episode normally isn’t enough for me to pass judgement on a new show, but Hank is abnormally boring. I’m not surprised it’s the only one of ABC’s Wednesday comedies that hasn’t been picked up for the full season. Worse yet, they’re even bumping it off the schedule next week to air the Charlie Brown Halloween special.
