“Dollhouse” (2.1 million viewers, 0.8 preliminary adults 18-49 rating) punched through it’s previous rock bottom Friday night to discover a Fox ratings netherworld. The show dropped 20% from last week’s premiere, which was already an all-time-low for the show. I’m betting the debut of Syfy’s “Stargate: Universe” zapped some viewers (cable ratings aren’t available yet), but even so — this is too low for a Fox show.
The second week of Fox’s “Brothers” (2.4 million, 0.8) didn’t do any better, neither did season debut of that indestructible sitcom zombie “Til Death” (2.3 million, 0.8). Fox placed fourth for the night, only a tenth of a point above the CW.
Meanwhile CBS didn’t have a great night either, with its trio of crime dramas falling from their somewhat-soft premieres. “Ghost Whisperer” (7.6 million, 1.7), “Medium” (7.7 million, 1.8) and “Numbers” (7.7 million, 1.6). CBS nonetheless won the night.
Also of interest Friday: the second week of “Law & Order” (6.7 million 1.2) was static. Week 2 of “Smallville” (2.4 million, 0.9) dropped 18%.
