"Dollhouse" will then return with back-to-back originals starting at 8:00/7:00c on December 4, 11 and 18.

As for the comedies, "Brothers" will permanently shift to Sundays at 7:00/6:00c starting November 8 with back-to-back originals also set for December 13 and 27. No return date for "'Til Death" however was given.
