Lone Star Creator Writes Open Letter in Effort to Stave Off Cancellation
Desperate times call for desperate measures. With Lone Star perched on the precipice of cancellation, creator Kyle Killen has done what every person here in 2010 does when something unfortunate befalls them: Taken to the Internet to write about it! This morning, he posted a plea to television watchers nationwide in an attempt to get them to watch Lone Star on Monday night. Will this last-minute Hail Mary pass work?
Absolutely not. Kudos, though, to Killen for treating his missive with the self-deprecation it so richly deserves:
For us to survive we're going to have to pull off a minor miracle. Statistically, new shows tend to lose viewers in their second week. We're aiming to gain them. In fact, screw it, let's just double our audience. The good news is, our audience was so small that if my Mom AND my Dad watch it we'll pretty much be there.
Zinger! Killen goes on to acknowledge that Lone Star airing beyond episode two is "nearly impossible," but hopes millions of people will just want to watch a "damn good hour of television." Samesies, Kyle.
