Fox promises to air all of season 2 of Dollhouse

Fox: We will air all 13 'Dollhouse' episodes--The Live Feed | THR The ratings have been low, but the DVR and streaming numbers have been phenomenal.
"Dollhouse" fans can breathe easier: Fox will air all 13 episodes. On the heels of impressive DVR data for last month's "Dollhouse" premiere, network executives say they will run each produced hour of the show's current order despite the Friday drama's modest overall ratings. "We're going to run all the episodes," Fox scheduling chief Preston Beckman said. "We're not saying we're happy with those numbers, or accept them, but we don't have to overreact. During [November] sweeps we might have to jack up the numbers a little [with other programming], but we plan on completing the order for this show." As for ordering additional episodes, or a third season, Fox says they will make that decision after the current run. The news represents a relief to "Dollhouse" fans that the current season won't be cut short, yet also suggests a full-season order is unlikely. Waiting until all 13 episodes have aired before making a decision generally means allowing production on the show to shut down for the season.

General Motors Bans Michael Moore From Detroit Premiere Of His Own Movie

Think Progress -- General Motors Bans Michael Moore From Detroit Premiere Of His Own Movie
Michael Moore’s next documentary is “Capitalism: A Love Story,” a film which attacks the U.S. economic system as fundamentally unjust and declares, “Capitalism is an evil, and you cannot regulate evil. You have to eliminate it and replace it with something that is good for all people and that something is democracy.” Although the movie is not set to open nationwide until Oct. 2, Moore has been premiering a number of sneak preview screenings for Detroit residents in his home state of Michigan. But, as Michigan Live reports, Moore ran into problems when it turned out one of the theaters he rented for the screenings was owned by General Motors (GM) — which Moore famously skewered for its anti-worker policies in his 1989 film Roger & Me. GM agreed to run the movie only if both Moore and the local press were locked out. Essentially, GM banned Moore from his own screening. . . .

Yes, Virginia, an evening with Kevin Smith is really worth $40

i41j.jpgJust enjoyed Mr. Smith's verbose form of performance art at Ann Arbor's Michigan Theater, a surprise birthday present from the missus. He signed some kid's asscheek, explained his six-month post-Zack and Miri Make a Porno nervous breakdown and how Wayne Gretzky showed him the way out. Also, it turns out that marijuana addiction is not only fun, but makes one a much more productive writer. He may or may not be your sort of entertainer (he is mine), but you must hand it to the man for starting out with nothing but parental love and a fist full of credit and ending up being able to pull $65,000 in tickets out of a state in the midst of a recession. Clearly, hard work and dick jokes are the keys to success. Thanks for answering my question, Kevin, and for being the guy that didn't give up. Kevin Smith available now: Smodcast with Scott Mosier. Available Feb. 2010: A Couple of Dicks with Bruce Willis.

3-D TV

3-D television expected to come to homes in 2010 - CNN.com
Panasonic and Sony, which demonstrated their products for CNN at a recent tech expo in Atlanta, Georgia, use "active glasses" and TVs with high refresh rates to achieve the effect. Two images, one for the right eye and one for the left eye, alternate quickly on the TV. Shutters on the 3-D glasses swap the viewer's vision from right eye to left eye at the same rate: 120 hertz, or 240 hertz for the images together. The TV connects with the glasses through a sensor that's placed between the lenses on the glasses. "It's like a little Venetian blind: open, close, open, close, open, close," John Wyckoff, a Sony content manager, said of the glasses. The effect moves so quickly that it tricks the brain into merging the images and creates the perspective needed to see images in 3-D, he said. Glance away from the TV, though, and you can see the lenses opening and closing, which irritates some people.... JVC is working on a type of 3-D technology that's different form the strobing glasses used by Panasonic and Sony. JVC's version uses polarized glasses to separate the right-eye image from the left-eye image and is more pleasing to the eye...
