FX Cancels Lights Out

FX is not ordering a second season of Lights Out, its well-received, poorly-rated drama about a retired boxer. The network will air the last two episodes in their regularly scheduled time slots. This is the second critically-respected series, after Terriers, that FX has had to cancel because the channel couldn't find an audience for it. At least the promotional campaign for Lights Out didn't involve a nonsensical, snarling dog.
