Weekly TV Wrap-Up - June 4th 2009

Upcoming Television Series

It is Thursday again and the weekend looms in front of us.

Today I'm going to chat about Summer Glau maybe being on Dollhouse, a tiny bit about Law & Order: SVU, a bit of Doctor Who news and some info about Ronald D. Moore's Virtuality including the air date and scenes from the show.

And as usual, we'll take a peak at ratings from last week.

Oh!  I've jammed in a subtle note about Burn Notice.

While you're here, if there's anything TV related on your mind, slap it in the comments and let us know what you're curious about or have an opinion on.

Shall we get on with it?

Summer Glau On Dollhouse?

Does Summer look chatty here?

Joss Whedon was asked if he'd consider getting Summer Glau on Dollhouse.  Duh!

He's way ahead of everyone.  Apparently he was already asking Summer to consider coming on board the Dollhouse production before The Sarah Connor Chronicles was even canceled. (A moment of silence for TSCC please.)

Joss is looking to cast her in a role of a character that talks too much.  LOL... that would be new.  Summer Glau being chatty?

Some think she'd be prefect as an "active" (i.e., one of the dolls) in Dollhouse, but Joss likes pushing his cast.  The idea of her being someone chatty would definitely be new to us.

If you haven't seen her actually being all chit-chatty, it's a refreshing look at Summer.

Law & Order: SVU Contract Talks

Word on the street is that there is still no deal in place for Law & Order: SVU stars Mariska Hargitay and Chris Meloni for next season.

As you know, SVU has been renewed for next year regardless of the stars' contracts, but word is that negotiations are "moving in the right direction."

I think it's a shame that Hargitay and Meloni were asking for so much money and I hope everyone can come to a happy medium.

I know SVU is NBC's No. 1 scripted show, but that isn't saying much considering where on the charts it kept showing up.  Last week in the ratings it was in 25th place.

Doctor Who Coming to BBC America

Starting in July, BBC America will be airing five Doctor Who specials.  On top of those episodes, they'll also be airing the final four adventures that have David Tennant starring as the Doctor.

All this fun starts in July.

Making a smart move for Doctor Who fans, BBC America also snagged the 2008 Christmas Special, "The Next Doctor," which stars David Morrissey and Dervla Kirwan. It will be broadcast on June 27, 2009.

Sounds great.  Now I have to figure out what channel BBC America is.
