Publish date:

Fox has announced it will pull the underperforming Lone Star from its lineup and replace it with new episodes of Lie To Me in the Monday 9 p.m. timeslot beginning Oct. 4.

The critically lauded Lone Star debuted to a dismal 1.3 rating last week and dropped to a 1.0 for last night's second episode, despite a plea from the show's creator for fans of the show to stage a "stunning upset" to save the freshman series from early cancellation.

The drama faced tough competition in the 9 p.m. slot from ABC's reality competion ratings powerhouse, Dancing With the Stars.
