How can a critically acclaimed show expect to grow an audience when 4 million viewers are busy watching some teenage skanks “raise” their bastard children on MTV’s “Teen Mom 2”? Jesus Christ, if I wanted to watch some fat high-school sophomore push her stupid kid around, I’d go hang out at the mall.
“Lights Out” moves with the cautious rhythm and deft assurance of a seasoned prize fighter. A quick jab here, a body shot there, and suddenly there’s nothing but calm.
FX dropped a testosterone-fueled teaser for their new series "Lights Out." This footage already has me amped up and the show doesn't even premiere until January. How am I supposed to expend all my energy now? Huh?! No you tell me!
The show stars Holt McCallany as Patrick Leary, a former heavyweight champ facing various difficulties in his life outside the ring. We've seen the whole broken down boxer thing before, but I have no doubt FX will deliver a fresh take on the premise. Or I'll fight them.
Check out the teaser after the jump…
