FX counted out its freshman drama series
Lights Out, cancelling the boxing-themed series last
week.

FX will air the final two episodes of the current
season in its regularly
scheduled
Tuesday night time
period, the network
said.

The series, which
stars Holt Mc-
Callany as an aging
former boxing
champion trying
to adjust to life outside
the ring, got
off to a slow ratings
star t, averaging
1.5 million viewers
in its Jan. 11 debut.
Overall the series is currently averaging 988,000
viewers and 601,000 viewers within the 18-49 demo.

Lights Out marks FX’s second consecutive cancellation
of an original series. The network in February
cancelled the drama series Terriers after that show
posted lower than expected ratings.
