Below are the latest renew/cancel predictions for the Fox network in the 2021-22 television season. The numbers listed in the table are the ratings that these shows have garnered in the Adults 18-49 demographic. One new series have entered the table since the previous update. As always, only scripted programming will be taken into account in this column.



Welcome To Flatch: Fox's latest addition to its sitcom library debuted with a pitiful 0.20 rating in the Adults 18-49 demographic and barely cleared the one-million mark in terms of total viewers. These numbers would be miserable enough on their own but it also managed to lose nearly 50% of its 'Call Me Kat' lead-in (0.36). 'Welcome To Flatch' is already the lowest-rated series on Fox and, like nearly every show to air on television, will likely drop from its premiere rating. Unless 'Flatch' magically grows an audience overnight, this comedy series will not be welcome on the Fox network by the time the fall season arrives. Status: LIKELY CANCEL

Call Me Kat: Since the previous column, sophomore comedy 'Call Me Kat' has been upgraded from "Likely Cancellation" to "Likely Renewal". Though it has definitely struggled this season, it recently shot up to a 0.36 rating on March 17th. That may not seem very solid on paper but it serves as the program's strongest 2022 performance without football help. This rating also eclipses the latest episode of every sitcom in the "Animation Domination" block, making 'Kat' the highest-rated Fox sitcom of the week. Considering that most shows crumble this late in the game, 'Kat' is beginning to look somewhat serviceable. Fox also airs reruns of the Mayim Bialik comedy every Sunday night, signaling that they are invested in making sure it gets more exposure. 'Call Me Kat' is far from a lock but a renewal seems far more likely than it did two months ago. Status: LIKELY RENEWAL

The Cleaning Lady: This Elodie Yung drama closed out its first season with an adequate 0.39 rating and retained a solid 71% of '9-1-1: Lone Star' (0.55) on finale night. 'The Cleaning Lady' was a modest success for the Fox network and even managed to outdo its premiere rating on January 24th (0.53) and January 31st (0.55) respectively. While it did tie its series low for its season closer, the Yung vehicle has likely done just enough to avoid cancellation. Status: LIKELY RENEWAL

Pivoting: 'Pivoting' ended its inaugural season with a lifeless 0.18 rating and went as low as a 0.15 during its short stint on Thursday nights. The sitcom was consistently below one million in total viewers for its final three installments and has an average that barely puts it above recently-canceled 'Big Leap'. All signs point to 'Pivoting' succumbing to an early demise, it is not likely to survive past these initial ten episodes. Status: LIKELY CANCEL

The Big Leap: Fox officially canceled 'The Big Leap' on March 4, 2022. Before this news came out, the drama had been in the "Certain Cancellation" category for quite some time, thus making it a correct prediction. Status: CANCELLED

Will 'Call Me Kat' Be Renewed?
