Of the two cancellations, The Kids Are Alright is the biggest surprise. The Mary McCormack and Michael Cudlitz-fronted series had strong reviews. 

It started strong in the ratings, but has tailed off in recent weeks. It is currently averaging 4.1 million total viewers and a 0.9 rating in the demo in live + same day measures.

The Fix was Robin Tunney's returned to TV. The Marcia Clark legal drama launched earlier this year to weak reviews. 

Additionally, it was on slipper slope in the ratings, with Monday's episode logging just a 0.3 rating. 

The cancellation was expected given the ratings.
