Fox Cheat Sheet: Lethal Weapon Is Likely Dead

at . Comments

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. 

1. Lethal Weapon - Likely Cancellation

Lethal Weapon - Likely Cancellation
This Fox drama cannot catch a break. Just months after ousting Clayne Crawford, Damon Wayans announced his intention to quit the series following the 13-episode third season.

However, he later came to an agreement with Fox to continue with the series for an additional two episodes.

The ratings are down 25 percent in the demo year-to-year to a mere 0.7 rating.

It does still pack a punch in delayed viewing, but the show is not owned by Fox and is performing well below the network's average. Add in the fact that there's a constant stream of negative press surrounding it, it's likely done. Look at these final two episodes as a quick wrap up.

2. The Gifted - Could Go Either Way

The Gifted - Could Go Either Way
The Gifted is averaging just 2.2 million viewers and a 0.7 rating. It still gets a boost on the DVR front and is owned by Fox.

It might be able to scrape by but any more slippage and it will definitely be canceled.

3. Rel - Certain Cancellation

This new Fox comedy is not resonating with viewers. It started at a 1.9 rating in the demo thanks to a football lead-in but has slipped as low as a 0.5 rating.

It will likely be ousted from the schedule in the coming weeks.

4. The Resident - Certain Renewal

The Resident - Certain Renewal
The Resident is stable vs. its first season in the demo with a 1.0 rating. In fact, it's one of the steadiest shows on television. Fox recently ordered more episodes for Season 2, citing the strong ratings.

It builds 70 percent with DVR factored in, so it's hard to imagine the network not wanting another season.

5. Family Guy - Certain Renewal

Family Guy - Certain Renewal
Family Guy is still posting solid ratings, with the current season averaging a 1.1 rating in the demo.

6. Bob's Burgers - Certain Renewal

This hit comedy is up year-to-year. With a 1.1 rating in the demo it's a lock for another season.
