Why Is Rosewood Now "Likely to be Renewed"?
Pre-Empire tune-in has struck Rosewood again, and managed to rise up to a 1.4 A18-49 demo ratings this week, and a 1.5 W18-34 rating (we can thank Empire's young women skew for that one). It had a 1.2 A18-49 demo rating in the 8pm half-hour, and a 1.6 in the second half-hour. Despite the Empire pre-tune, even by itself Rosewood isn't performing *that* badly. It doesn't get the best of DVR numbers, so I make the assumption that streaming, VOD, OTT, C3/7 boosts, etc numbers aren't the
greatest. But can FOX really pass on a show that can do mid 1s with pre-tune and at least manage a 1.0 on its own? Even though live ratings aren't as much a factor for FOX as they used to be, it's still doing better than much of their shows. 

Recall my post about how FOX hasn't renewed more than 4 dramas in recent seasons. They've already renewed 4 dramas, though Bones and Scream Queens are both short seasons. With Lucifer pretty much a lock for renewal, if Rosewood is renewed that would be 6 dramas, 4 of which would be full seasons. So it wouldn't be that much a stretch for FOX to renew so much considering they're losing American Idol. I don't think FOX will have all that much to look forward to with Rosewood's numbers next season, but they could be in for worse.
