TV Roundup: “Dollhouse” ratings fall, “Scrubs” update and more

DEADLINE HOLLYWOOD writes that the “Gossip Girl” spinoff (“Lily”) is already dead, and TV.com speculates its because there just isn’t enough room for all of the hour-long dramas the CW wants to debut next fall. That is, unless “Privileged” gets the boot.

TV Roundup: Shorter seasons for “Heroes,” ABC shows in limbo and more

– ABC has renewed “Lost,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” — no surprises there — “Brothers & Sisters,” “Desperate Housewives,” “Ugly Betty” and “Private Practice,” but “Cupid,” “Better Off Ted,” “Castle,” “Scrubs,” “Samantha Who?” and “The Unusuals” are still in limbo. TV.com thinks that “Castle” has the best chance of surviving.
