Fox to give ‘Lone Star’ one more shot

TexastoastAs we wrote today, “Lone Star” is pretty much Texas toast.

But Fox isn’t giving up on the critically acclaimed new drama just yet. The network will keep the show on at least one more Monday, in the hopes that it shows some sort of life.

Net execs aren’t kidding themselves — it would take a lot to get “Lone Star” up to an acceptable number. But with loads of lookie-loos in week one for ABC’s outrageously cast “Dancing with the Stars” and NBC’s thriller “The Event,” there may be a few viewers up for grabs at 9 p.m. this Monday. And perhaps some of them have heard about the good buzz behind “Lone Star.”

But beyond that, nothing’s certain. Production continues through Thursday on episode five of “Lone Star.” All bets are off after that.
