Surviving the Friday Night DeathslotEdit
Hi, Whedon fans!
I'm wiki member "Raivon" and I'm here to make a proposal. As you all know, Dollhouse is premiering on Friday nights, a position that has earned the reputation as the "good show graveyard", and will be coupled with Josh Friedman's brilliant series "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles".
TSCC is a rising star that has the potential to become one of the greatest sci-fi shows ever created, but has unfortunately received poor ratings for its second season (due to its Monday night position and the decline in overall viewing for FOX shows). However, the show is greatly adored by its fans and has maintained a level of loyal viewers (typically over 5.0 million every episode), which has led to FOX granting TSCC a chance to grow a larger fan base by moving it to Friday nights and partnering it with Dollhouse.
I am a fan of both TSCC and Whedon's creations, having followed all seven seasons of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", all five seasons of "Angel", and the short-lived wonder that was "Firefly". Whedon's protege in "Firefly", Summer Glau, has taken her extraordinary talents from playing the psychotic River Tam and transferred those wonderful skills to the portrayal of Cameron Phillips, a deadly and adorable cyborg in TSCC.
So it is my hope that when February 13th 2009 arrives, all the Whedon and Dollhouse fans will tune-in one hour earlier and watch TSCC too. Terminator fans will likewise stay tuned for another hour and watch Dollhouse. By helping each other, we can garner a healthy level of viewers to keep both shows afloat. Our combined loyalty to these two brilliant shows can ensure a bright future for sci-fi television. Together we can earn at least five seasons for both shows.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope our two respective fanbases can band together.

- That is a great idea. Spreading the word will be crucial in getting this Sci-Fi-Friday up and running. --— Wiesengrund (talk) 10:57, 22 December 2008 (UTC)
Would anyone object if the article was moved to just "Dollhouse (series)"? Since "Dollhouse" really only applies to the institution or the series itself, I don't really think the "TV" suffix is necessary. --05:49, 19 February 2009 (UTC)
Did anyone keep an eye on the first auction (there's a new one going on now, it seems), I totally forgot to do so, so I didn't get to see what kind of prices such things as the active files went for (wouldn't it have been great to glance at those?).--Terran Officer 19:44, February 3, 2010 (UTC)
