One returning and one new series premiered last night with decidedly disappointing results. Fox’s Lie to Me kicked off its second season with 7.7 million viewers, a sharp drop from the 14.5 million who watched lead-in House. Elsewhere, NBC debuted its new drama Trauma, but the first episode only drew a weak 6.9 million viewers. The one silver lining is that it managed to improve upon its lead-in, Heroes, by over a million viewers.
