Lone Star cancelled - good news for Lie to Me fans

Sad news. Lone Star's pilot only pulled in 4 million viewers, and then that sank to 3.2 viewers for the second episode, so it got cancelled after just two episodes. This is a bummer for those of us who enjoyed the show. There are many worse new shows this season (*cough* My Generation *cough*). We are not devastated though. More like, "Well, that's a shame. Oh Well."

We think the problem was the advertising campaign and the premise. The premise of the show should have been kept underwraps, because we know a lot of people weren't crazy about the idea of a guy cheating two women and conning people out of their money. Also, the advertisements should have focused more on the heart of the story, rather than the duplicity.

It's like we said before: people like to root for a good guy in the long run. A movie where you root for the bad guy is one thing. Asking an audience to root for a slimeball week after week is another.

We hope they consider a Lone Star movie, but that will probably never happen. The good news in this situation is that Lie to Me will return next week, taking over Lone Star's time slot. The Monday night slot is a competitive one, and Lie to Me isn't THAT popular, so we hope the time slot won't kill another show this blogger likes as well.
