Fox has pulled the plug on freshman drama Almost Family after just a single season. The series wrapped up its 13-episode run on February 22, 2020 with a dismal 0.2 rating in the key 18-49 demographic. Less than a million people watched the final episode. In all, the program averaged an abysmal 0.44 A18-49 rating. Almost Family was based on the television series Sisters and starred Brittany Snow, Emily Osment, Victoria Cartagena, Mo McRae, and Timothy Hutton. The TV Ratings Guide correctly predicted that the drama would not make it to season two.

Earlier today, actor Timothy Hutton (who played Doctor Leon Bechley in the show) was accused of sexual assault by former Canadian model Sera Johnston. While The TV Ratings Guide will not go into further detail about the alleged incident, this added factor may have prompted the Fox network to officially announce their termination of this low-rated program. In addition, the abrupt move from a plush Wednesday slot after The Masked Singer to an undesirable Saturday slot for its final two episodes spelled doom for the series. This marks the first Fox series to receive a cancellation announcement during the 2019-2020 television season. Below are subdemo ratings for the first five episodes it aired.

The series performed best in the Women 25-54 demographic.
