There have been rumors for the last week or so that Joss Whedon was pitching story ideas to the suits at FOX for a second season of his perpetually ratings-challenged "Dollhouse" Series. This was a surprise, since it's FOX after all, and it was just assumed the show was dead as a doornail. It had the lowest ratings of any hight-budget scripted series on TV - a 1.0 share in the male 18-49 demographic, but it consistently went up to a 1.4 if DVR ratings were factored in.

BREAKING NEWS: Kings is dead, long live the Kings

Geez, what a week I'm having. First JG Ballard dies, and now NBC has pulled Kings from their schedule. They plan on burning off the remaining episodes during the summer doldrums - June and July - probably with the typical lack of fanfare and respect that NBC has treated the show with thus far.

Honestly, I don't know how or why they do this - the show costs $4 an EPISODE! They've blown $44 million on the episodes they've already produced, plus another ten million on the pilot. You'd think they'd want a shot at earning some of that money back.
