Final Season
Almost Family: On premiere night, Almost Family premiered to a 0.8 out of a 1.9 from The Masked Singer in the preliminary results. On the surface, this does not look bad. But on FOX's drama department, the network could have expected better. 42% retention from the prelims is not a great start. Not to mention, it premiered worse than Prodigal Son. That, combined with the deep bench in dramas, Almost Family starts as likely to be canceled.

Prodigal Son: In week 2, Prodigal Son was stable in the demo after 9-1-1. While I'm still not sure that it will hold at that number after 9-1-1 takes a break, I'm confident that this will get an episode extension. It now leans renewal.

Bless the Harts: In the middle of a collapsing Animation Domination lineup, Bless the Harts started out at a 0.7 in the demo. Considering the lineup, it was not bad at all. But we need to see the numbers after football and without to tell a clearer picture. Right now, it leans renewal. But only time will tell on whether it stays at renewable levels.

The Resident: Tuesday night's 0.7 rating made me raise some eyebrows, considering that the Tuesday move hurt the show. But as I will say again, The Resident is in season 3. FOX, rarely, if ever, cancels shows after season 3 unless either a show has terrible ratings (The Exorcist, The Mindy Project) or high production costs (Star). Right now, The Resident shows very little evidence of this except for that it dropped a tenth. I'll analyze this more down the line, but for now, it is likely to be renewed, and won't go any lower than leans renewal this season.
