Many viewers were shocked to learn that Fox picked up Dollhouse for a second season.
Now, those same viewers better enjoy what remains of this drama while they can: there's little doubt at this point it will be shut down after completing its 13-episode order.
Sources have confirmed that the network won't air a single Dollhouse episode during November sweeps. It will return in December, air back-to-back episodes on Friday nights and then almost definitely go off the air.
A silver lining, at least? Followers of creator Joss Whedon can turn in next year when he directs an installment of Glee.
