NEW YORK (AP) - Fox network says its prime-time soap “Lone Star” is being pulled off the air after just two airings.

Replacing the little-watched new show is the psychological crime drama, “Lie To Me,” which begins its third season next Monday at 9 p.m. EDT.

Although Fox didn’t officially cancel “Lone Star,” its fate seemed sealed after Monday’s episode, whose audience was even smaller than the 4.1 million viewers who had watched its premiere a week earlier.

Praised by critics, the show featured newcomer James Wolk as a charismatic Texas con man living a double life with two beautiful women.

With the dire news from Fox on Tuesday, “Lone Star” became the first casualty of the fall TV season, which is little more than a week old.


Fox network is a unit of News Corp.
