Defying hopes and expectations, the highly-touted, eagerly anticipated Dollhouse did not raise the ratings roof on Friday.
The show was a reunion of Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon, that show's co-star Eliza Dushku, and Amy Acker from spinoff Angel. It finished in third place at 9 p.m. behind Flashpoint on CBS (which had double the ratings of the new show) and Supernanny on ABC.
Not a disaster, but not a breakout hit either.
Who won the face-off RadarOnline.com told you about the other day, with Buffy alum James Masters on Numb3rs? That would be the one-time vamp Spike, whose ratings were also double that of his former crypt-mate at 10 p.m.
