Primetime Ratings: 'Lone Star' Doesn't Improve, 'The Event' Dips

ABC wins night with 'Dancing With the Stars'

Fox's dark horse Lone Star failed to improve on its anemic 1.3 series debut last week, scoring the same in the 18-49 demo for its second episode Monday night, according to preliminary overnight numbers.

That is 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.

In Monday's other new shows, NBC's The Event  at 9 p.m. posted a 2.9, down 19% from last week. Action drama Chase was down 9% from its debut last week at a 2.1 at 10 p.m. on NBC.

CBS' Hawaii Five-0 posted a 3.5 in the 10 p.m. slot, down from last week's debut at a 3.8.

ABC's Dancing With the Stars helped the network win the night with a 4.8 and 22.6 million viewers during the 8-10 p.m. slot.
