‘Lone Star’ creator prays for a Texas-sized comeback in week two

Lonestar
“Lone Star” creator Kyle Killen took to his blog on Thursday in a last-ditch effort to stir up some support for his troubled show.

Despite critical raves, “Lone Star” was a ratings dud, scoring the lowest numbers of any Big Four premiere so far this week. Killen admits his chances are slim, but he’s hoping for an upset of epic propotions on Monday:

 

You may have heard about last Monday night when several heavily sequined, dancing celebrity, conspiracy laden, bowling shirted nuclear bombs landed directly on our heads. When everyone who watched your show is a paid critic or someone you went to high school with, that’s less of a premiere than a slideshow.

But! BUT!

But here we are. Still alive. A little groundhog peeking out of a bomb crater to see if there’s six more weeks of nuclear winter or if, perhaps, something can grow in this hole. And that’s where you come in.

For us to survive we’re going to have to pull off a minor miracle. 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. The good news is, our audience was so small that if my Mom AND my Dad watch it we’ll pretty much be there.
