Fox previewed a pair of genre-based comedies this week. The Orville, written and starring Seth MacFarlane seems to trod upon Galaxy Quest‘s territory, and Ghosted, which kind of feels like Warehouse 13. Kind of. And it stars half the leads of Hot Tub Time Machine 2.

The CW announced their new fall schedule this morning. There’s only one real new Genre series this season – The Secret Circle, which is based around a group of teenage witches in the town of New Salem, and is based on another young-adult novel series from the author of the Vampire Diaries. Outside of Genre, Sarah Michell Gellar returns to TV in the series Ringer, where she plays a dual role as an alcoholic woman on the run from shady characters, who holes up with her rich twin sister (who has problems of her own). Hart of Dixie is about a big-city New York doctor who moves to a practice in a small-town in the South. Our final new series is H8R, a reality series wherein celebs confront their haters, scheduled before America’s Next Top Model. Nikita, the TV series based on the film by Luc Besson, is being moved to Fridays, before Supernatural.

What a difference a week makes. Just a few days ago, everyone seemed to think that, thanks to DVRs, Dollhouse was safe, at least for now. Today, the latest rumor is that Dollhouse won’t even air during November sweeps. This is, as they say, a bad sign. (I’ll refrain from making all the “told ya so” jokes about Joss and the Fox network, because I’m sure the rest of you will have much better ones anyway.)
