FOX to Keep "Dollhouse," "Dance" Open This Fall
By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- FOX is giving its much-ballyhooed drama "Dollhouse" a second season.

The news, which was confirmed by network and studio sources this evening, comes after weeks of industry speculation that often pointed its fate in the other direction.

Nevertheless, 13 new episodes will roll out this fall - more than likely back on Friday nights.

Meanwhile, the network has also pulled the trigger on a fall edition of "So You Think You Can Dance." Said pickup means a sixth season of the series will bow this fall shortly after season five wraps in August.

The news comes on the heels of FOX successfully "doubling up" on its fellow summer entry "Hell's Kitchen" this past season.

Both renewals put what will likely be the final pieces into the puzzle that is FOX's fall schedule, due on Monday.

With Saturdays ("Cops" and "America's Most Wanted") and Sundays (the animated shows) essentially locked in and two hours already devoted to "Dance," one assumes the remaining eight hours will feature some combination of its returning dramas ("Fringe," "Dollhouse," "House," "Lie to Me" and presumably "Bones") and its newcomers "Brothers," "Glee," "Past Life," "Sons of Tucson" and "Human Target." Further complicating the mix: season six of "Hell's Kitchen," premiering Tuesday, July 21 at 8:00/7:00c, could bleed into October should it run for 15 episodes (as was the case for its fifth edition).

Other wild cards include new seasons of "Kitchen Nightmares" and "'Til Death" as well as the already in production "Someone's Gotta Go."

In short: "24" and "American Idol" should have plenty of company at midseason.
