"Pushing" changes via the site options control not taking effect

Hey guys, the option to force a template on a network site isn't functioning for me. Here's the deal:

-I go to Sites under Super Admin
-Get the Edit option by mousing over the path of the site I want to access.
-Go to the Edit screen. (So that we all know what page I'm on, the Site Info control is on the right of the screen and the Site Themes control is on the left).
-Under Misc Site Actions, I see the template dropdown. I choose the template I want to force to the site and click the Update Options button.
-The page refreshes and the Setting Saved yellow dialog box appears at the top, but the changes do not show on the site and the Template dropdown on the Edit page still reads None.

Any ideas? I've verified that I'm editing the site I think I am.

Lastly, I'd like to put in a vote for the feature discussed here: https://premium.wpmudev.org/forums/topic/new-blog-template-multiple-templates-themes. Would make my life massively easier.

Thank you much!
