Last week FOX's Lone Star premiered with only a 1.3 in the 18-49 key demographic. In other words, things aren't looking good for the new primetime soap. What makes matters worse is that FOX isn't known for giving shows time to build an audience, and has, in the past, cancelled a show after one episode.
So this leaves me wondering if tonight is the last test for Lone Star. Will The Event lose some viewers? Viewers who will then tune into the already barely alive show. Also, I think for FOX to pick Lone Star up for a full season, or for it to even allow the current order be completed, Lone Star is going to have to drastically improve from last week. A 1.8 tonight still won't save the show. Especially when its lead in, House, is getting a 4.1 in the key demos.
As of now, FOX hasn't pulled the show from the schedule, and it still airs tonight at 9p.m. However, next week might be a completely different story. Check back tomorrow to see if Lone Star was able to pull in more viewers.
