Fox to Retool Struggling Friday With House, Bones

Yes, there is still a November sweeps period. And Fox will temporarily replace its struggling combination of Brothers, ‘Til Death and Dollhouse with repeats of House and Bones. 

An encore telecast of the two-hour season-premiere of House will populate the evening on Oct. 30, followed by the House and Bones second-runs in November.

Dollhouse will return with back-to-back episodes beginning on Friday, December 4, while recently introduced Brothers will move into the Sunday 7 p.m. half hour on Nov. 8. 

‘Til Death, meanwhile, will return to where it was most of last season: on hiatus.
