Fox drama Lone Star has been cancelled after just two episodes, it has been revealed.
Last week's opening episode drew a poor 4.06 million viewers, while the second episode on Monday night fared even worse, pulling in 3.2 million viewers.
According to Deadline, Fox has decided to axe the program with immediate effect. Its Monday night slot will now be replaced by the third season of Lie To Me, which had not been due to air this early.
The studio has also ceased production on Lone Star, which was halfway through its sixth episode of filming. It is not yet known what will happen to the three unaired episodes.
Series creator Kyle Killen recently admitted that he was "gobsmacked" by the show's low ratings.
