The Resident: Honestly, I'm torn about The Resident's chances for renewal. On the one hand, The Resident is doing fine, and a 0.7 is borderline and somewhat solid ratings for FOX. However, FOX does not own the show, Disney does through 20th Television. That alone makes it a negative indicator for renewal. It's likely to be canceled, but I'm not going to write it off completely for a renewal. I'll wait and see how the midseason dramas fare.

Almost Family: With the midseason dramas, the same cannot be said about Almost Family. Although FOX has a co-ownership stake with Disney on the show, a reality show and three other dramas are waiting in the bench. Ownership is definitely not going to save Almost Family, especially since FOX did not order any more episodes of the show. There's a small chance The Resident may make it to next year, but there is no chance Almost Family will. It's still certain to be canceled.
