Gosh, Bones and House are being shuffled around like a deck of cards! Make up your minds! :glare:

But, this network appears to want to take some programmimg risks, what with Dollhouse and Fringe. Especially with Dollhouse, if the plots are as attractive as its actress [former Buffy alumna Eliza Dushku] .... Ymmm. tongue
