Serving of the Week

10/04/2010 Posted by Mel Got Served 1 comment

Name: Lone Star
SERVED: About 2 months ago I received a DVD screener (and a shizz ton of goodies) for an upcoming show on Fox called Lone Star. I eagerly used the beer mug and brought the DVD to my parent's house (also TV lovers) and we watched the pilot and really enjoyed it. "I can see myself getting hooked on this!" I said. Wrong!

After airing its second episode, Fox's Lone Star was cancelled due to abysmal ratings and made it the first new TV show to be cancelled in the fall 2010 season. SERVED! It's hard to be a critical darling but have no one watching. I didn't even watch episode 2 once I heard the news- hey, this gives me another hour to watch TLC's Say Yes to the Dress: Big Bliss. Goodbye, Lone Star. You were well written, well acted, but sadly unwatched. SERVED!

Honorary SERVING: ABC's My Generation, which was the 2nd show to be axed for the new fall season.

Think someone should get SERVED? Leave your ideas in the comments section, email me, or hit me up on Twitter or Facebook.

So sad to see "Lone Star" go... perhaps a cable network like USA or FX can pick it up? Probably just wishful thinking...
