Fox Cancels Lone Star

Posted September 28th, 2010 at 3:19 pm

Fox has sent down word that after two episodes they have officially canceled Lone Star. The series which had aired Mondays at 9pm will be replaced by Lie to Me which is having its premiere moved up to October 4th. It had been originally scheduled to come back on Wednesdays starting November 10th and what will take its place there remains uncertain.

Lone Star was a critical darling heading into its premiere but started with a horrendously low 1.3 18-49 rating and despite efforts to produce a bump in its second week it fell to a 1.0 rating. With those numbers Fox had absolutely no choice but to pull it. Lone Star‘s premise was not appealing to a wide audience and the marketing failed to get across a clear vision of the series.
