Lights still on for FX's 'Lights Out'

FX president John Landgraf admits he's "disappointed" by this week's premiere of its boxing drama "Lights Out," which averaged just 1.5 million viewers on Tuesday. "Maybe we should've made a show about a zombie or a sexy vampire who was trying to regain the heavyweight title," he said Saturday morning. FX being FX, the network still plans to air all 13 episodes, just as it did with "Terriers," which Landgraf now describes as "a beloved 13-episode miniseries." If you'd like to help "Lights Out" from meeting a similar fate -- I've seen 12 of the 13 so far and I'd like to see a season or two more -- the show airs at 10 p.m. Tuesdays.

About this blog
As the TV critic for the Philadelphia Daily News, I've always believed my job is less about thumbs -- up or down -- and more about the conversation. Because the more choices we have, the fewer people in our lives know what we're talking about when we say, "Did you see that?" And that's when television really starts to get interesting.
