Fox’s Lone Star, one of the best-reviewed new shows of the season, was canceled Tuesday after a second week of dismal audience numbers. The show attracted just 3.79 million viewers, making it the lowest-rated show on any of the major networks on Monday night. It faced impossible competition during the 9:00 p.m. hour, however. On ABC, Dancing with the Stars, the No. 1 show on broadcast TV, attracted 23 million viewers. On cable’s ESPN, the Monday Night Football game between the Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears drew 17.5 million viewers. On CBS, Two and a Half Men, followed by Mike & Molly averaged 12 million viewers, and on NBC, the second week of The Event averaged 9 million. According to reports, six episodes of Lone Star had been filmed before the series was canceled, and there was no indication from Fox about the possibility of the remaining episodes ever being aired or being offered online. Fox said that it will replace Lone Star with Lie to Me, whose third season had been scheduled to begin in November.
