Fox's 'Lone Star' fizzles out after just two episodes

September 28, 2010 |  3:13 pm

Fox's conman drama "Lone Star" earned the dubious distinction of being the first show canceled in the 2010-11 television season after just two episodes.

The drama, about a Texas hustler juggling two families and his overbearing father, failed to generate a spark with viewers despite getting lots of praise from television critics.

"Lone Star" averaged just 3.7 million viewers in its two airings, according to Nielsen, and was losing more than half of its lead-in audience from "House."

Fox said it would fill the 9 p.m. Monday slot "Lone Star" occupied with new episodes of its drama "Lie to Me," which stars Tim Roth.
