Lone Star- Now You See It, Now You Don’t.

Remember that show that had just one episode air? Something about a con man? Something about being critically acclaimed? Oh yeah, Lone Star. Well, it’s canceled.  BYE!

Series creator Kyle Killen says:

“For [Lone Star] to survive we’re going to have to pull off a minor miracle,” he wrote. “Statistically, new shows tend to lose viewers in their second week. We’re aiming to gain them. In fact, screw it, let’s just double our audience.”

Yeah, I doubt it.  Why? the viewership kicked off a a measly 4 million viewers. And typically a second episode gets even less. According to Entertainment Weekly, there are only five episodes besides the pilot created, and there won’t be any more coming, save that minor miracle.
