The Resident

The Moodys
Likely Cancelation

Final Season
Last Man Standing: The first two episodes of Last Man Standing premiered at a 1.0, then the next two episodes dropped to a 0.8. Last Man Standing still rakes in as one of the top rated comedies on Fox. As long as it remains steady in the 0.8 range, it should get renewed. Although it's not as certain given that it's now an unowned show. Nonetheless, Last Man Standing fans shouldn't worry too much about the show for now. Last Man Standing is likely to be renewed.

Now for the drama situation with Deputy, Prodigal Son, and The Resident. Deputy joined the 0.7 club along with Prodigal Son and The Resident. All three shows lean renewal at the moment, because ratings are so close between the three shows and they are at the FOX scripted median.

The Moodys: So much for the miniseries designation. A FOX press release had The Moodys waiting for a renewal decision. First of all, that's not likely happening. Second of all, ratings were terrible. The Moodys didn't do any better than the later episodes of Almost Family. The Moodys is likely to be canceled, although I would have had it as a certain cancelation if I were more ruthless.

Almost Family: Speaking of Almost Family, the FOX press release states that Almost Family and Flirty Dancing are pulled from the Wednesday night schedule effective January 22. This means that Almost Family is now effectively canceled. Go figure. The FOX Renew/Cancel chart adds the "effectively canceled" designation in light of the news, instead of just plain "canceled".
