Code Sample, a copy-pastable example if possible

>>> import io
>>> import pandas as pd
>>> pd.read_csv(io.StringIO('foo,bar'), header=0, dtype=np.float64).values
array([], shape=(0, 2), dtype=object)

Problem description

CSV reader doesn't respect the given dtype np.float64 but sets object dtype instead.

Expected Output

array([], shape=(0, 2), dtype=float64)

Output of pd.show_versions()
