Lights Out on FX

    Did anyone catch the premiere of this show? Watched it on DVR last night, and while it is a bit of a Rocky retread, it sucked me in, especially with the montage while he was talking to his daughter at the end.

    Didn't like that they seemingly want to use the "What happened in the guy's last round" thing as a cliffhanger, but I'll deal. And, judging by the preview clips, these two guys aren't going to actually box, but fight in some kind of cross between an Octagon and the underground ring in the Kickboxer movies. But the premiere did enough to get me more interested than anything else on TV this season.

    Watched it, thought it was pretty good. Reviews have been good and it supposedly will be getting much better (after the pilot). However, ratings were 1.5M for opener, which wasn't strong.

    I'm pissed at FX for canning Terriers. So fuck this show for the immediate future.

    While, I, too am pissed about how FX dealt with "Terriers," I don't get taking it out on another of their shows. It's not like "Lights Out" replaced it. And it's not like if "Lights Out" tanks, they'll bring "Terriers" back. If anything, it would probably make FX skittish about taking a chance on a gritty show like "Terriers."

    I thought the subject line meant fx was going out of business.
