FOX Renew/Cancel: Almost Family is Still Certain to be Canceled, While Animated Shows are Certain to be Renewed

Welcome to the FOX Renew/Cancel columns, where scripted show fates are predicted whether they are renewed or canceled. I took a week off last week due to the World Series, and I am back to predicting this week. This week, two shows got upgraded, while one show's prediction despite getting capped is getting more obvious. Thank the search engine optimization folks! Here is the updated table.
Certain Renewal
Bob’s Burgers
Certain Renewal
Family Guy
Certain Renewal
Prodigal Son
Likely Renewal
The Resident
Leans Cancelation
Almost Family
Certain Cancelation
Bless the Harts
The Simpsons
Final Season
Almost Family: As it becomes even more blatantly obvious that Almost Family is certain to be canceled, FOX announced that it won't be ordering any more episodes by announcing the midseason schedule. Almost Family was nowhere to be found on the schedule. So it will be finishing its initial order before February rolls around. This should come as no surprise for the lowest rated rookie on FOX with many sites already calling it canceled. We may need to order the defacto canceled category soon.

Bob's Burgers and Family Guy: While some may say that both shows are defacto renewed, these shows have not officially been announced as renewed yet. With the renewal of Bless the Harts, and the ramping up of animation, I don't expect Bob's Burgers or Family Guy to get canceled any time soon. With the lower renewal bar, both shows easily clear that. Family Guy and Bob's Burgers earn an upgrade to certain to be renewed.

What do you think about this week's predictions? Let us know in the comments below!
