Fox Forced To Choose: Target Or Lie
With less than a week to go before Fox announces its line-up for next season, a new rumor wrinkle has appeared to upset plans: The network may have to choose between two potentially-returning dramas and risk upsetting fans.
With only one hour-long slot remaining, Fox execs may be forced to choose between a second season of Human Target and a third of Lie To Me, according to Entertainment Weekly. EW puts forward the case that Target has lower ratings and is more expensive to produce, but counters that Lie no longer has its showrunner as of last week (Deadline Hollywood suggests that Target is looking the likelier of the two currently). As a surprised fan of Target, I hope it gets the chance to work out its kinks in a second season, but I have to admit, I wouldn’t be too surprised if Fox decides to pass.
