FX Cancels 'Lights Out'

by Chris Harnick, posted Mar 24th 2011 3:59PM
Lights Out CanceledFX has KO'ed its freshman boxing drama 'Lights Out,' Entertainment Weekly reports.

The series debuted in January to 1.5 million viewers, but numbers declined steadily. The March 22 episode was seen by just under 700,000 viewers.

Holt McCallany, Pablo Schreiber and Stacy Keach headlined the boxing drama.

'Lights Out' received generally favorable reviews, however our own Maureen Ryan called it "frustratingly uneven," but it had "its moments."

FX gave the series a good amount of publicity, but the show failed to grab an audience in the competitive Tuesday 10PM time slot.

'Lights Out' joins critically acclaimed one-season-wonder 'Terriers' in FX's canceled shows graveyard.

BRING BACK LIGHTS !!! Finally get a decent show about something other than the normal variety. Too many cops, dead bodies, reality, bones, guns, detectives, etc. Give us something NEW, Give us "Lights Back"......

I look forward to Tuesday nights for Lights Out. This is a big loss! I hope there's a reconsideration.
