Fox Cheat Sheet: The Orville is on the Bubble
There are a lot of changes coming to Fox in the coming months.
With an increased reliance on sports programming, it makes it difficult to assess which shows will be coming back during the 2019-2020 TV season.
But there are two shows pulling in ratings low enough to rule them dead shows airing, and we’ve rounded up how we think Fox’s renewals and cancellations will play out based on a variety of factors.
Have a look below.
Lethal Weapon – Certain Cancellation
The Gifted – Certain Cancellation
Rel – Certain Cancellation
The Passage – Likely Renewal
The Passage is averaging a 1.0 rating in the demo. It’s no 9-1-1, but it’s holding up well out of The Resident. It secures strong gains Live + 7 metrics, so that’s a major positive. Barring a freefall in the ratings, it should be back.
Family Guy – Certain Renewal
Family Guy is still posting solid ratings, with the current season averaging a 1.2 rating in the demo.
Bob’s Burgers – Certain Renewal
With a 1.3 rating on Sunday nights, this show is not showing its age quite yet.
