Fox's poor Lone Star continued its death spiral Monday night. Only 3.8 million viewers tuned in, down from the already horrendous 4.1 million of the show's first week. Worse yet, Lone Star couldn't keep the few people who tuned it: The audience dropped by half from the first half hour to the second. Sad to say, but this show is about to meet Jim Bowie and Davey Crockett in Texas heaven.
UPDATE: It's official: Lone Star is the first cancellation of the fall season. By the way, the final Nielsen numbers were even worse than the rough estimates -- just 3.2 million people watched the second episode.
