Fox’s “Lone Star” pulled in about sixteen viewers, which means the network may take it out back and shoot it before it has the chance to embarrass them anymore. It’s like a grudge thing. We had so much faith in you! You let us down! Paulie, take this show for a ride to the Barrens. Ah, but why? Why did Lone Star fail to connect with the American people? Deadspin has a theory, and I think they’re right:

I personally can see Fox’s rationale putting Lone Star behind House, another show with a flawed character, but I do think that Dr. House’s pill popping and verbal abrasiveness rate much higher on the forgiveness scale than Lone Star hero’s cheating on 2 wives and swindling hard-working people out of their money.

There you have it. When I saw the previews, it seemed like a show about a guy who was lying to his mistress and his wife and possibly another wife and was feeling bad about it because he was letting down his father. Okay. Fine. Next.
