FX’s new boxing drama Lights Out may have critics in its corner, but the viewers didn’t show up.
The Holt McCallany starrer debuted with 1.5 million viewers on Tuesday at 10 p.m. In the key adults 18-49 demo, the series received a 0.6 rating, translating to 793,000 viewers.
To compare, FX’s Terriers premiere on Sept. 8 was higher with 1.6 million. The hourlong series, with Donal Logue and Michael Raymond-James, was not picked up for a second season.
Justified and Damages, both debuting Tuesdays at 10 p.m., outdrew Lights Out with 4.2 million viewers (1.55) and 3.7 million (0.94), respectively. Justified premiered March 16 and Damages, which airs its next two seasons on DirecTV, debuted July 24, 2007.
Compared to Dirt, which had a January debut in 2007, Lights Out was down more than 2 million.
The question becomes, will more people turn up for the second episode?
