Below are the latest renew/cancel predictions for the Fox network in the 2022-23 television season. The numbers listed in the table mark the Nielsen rating low, average, and high for each respective program in the Adults 18-49 demographic. Since the last update, 'The Resident', 'Call Me Kat', and 'Welcome To Flatch' have all posted new season highs. Only scripted programming will be taken into account in this column. 

The Resident: 'The Resident' just aired its 100th episode on the Fox network and climbed to a new season high in the process. This serves as a major milestone for a series that often finds itself in the middle of the pack in terms of Nielsen ratings. The 0.38 rating that the medical drama garnered on October 25th may not seem like much, but it was enough to make it the fourth highest-rated broadcast of the evening (only behind juggernauts like 'Bachelor in Paradise', 'FBI', and 'The Voice'). It's hard to imagine that a Fox drama outside of '9-1-1' (or its spinoff series '9-1-1: Lone Star') could perform this well against such stiff competition. This Amy Holden Jones creation is Likely to be Renewed as usual. 

Call Me Kat: On October 24, comedian and actor Leslie Jordan sadly passed away in a car accident while on his way to film scenes for 'Call Me Kat'. Jordan played the character "Phil" in the Mayim Bialik sitcom and has been in every episode since the program's start. Production for 'Call Me Kat'  reportedly stopped for the time being and it is currently unknown when it will resume. Seemingly as a result of what happened, 'Kat' surged to a 0.27 Nielsen rating in the Adults 18-49 demographic on the 27th. The comedy improved by nearly 30% from its 'Welcome To Flatch' lead-in and boasted a staggering 50% week-to-week increase. Nonetheless, it is still unlikely that 'Kat' will be back for season four. The death of a series regular does not bode well for the future of any program and the sudden growth is almost certainly due to the media attention surrounding Jordan's death. As the weeks progress, these new viewers will probably lose interest and the series will sink back to its normal level. 'Kat' is Likely to be Canceled as of October 29, 2022.

Welcome To Flatch: 'Call Me Kat' and 'The Resident' were not the only shows to hit a new season high this week. Struggling sitcom 'Welcome To Flatch' grew to a 0.21 on October 27th and tied its highest rating of all time. That sounds quite impressive due to the semantics, but this remains an extremely poor performance for a series on a big 4 network. Its 'Hell's Kitchen' lead-in (0.46) also soared to a new high at 8, meaning 'Flatch' retained a meager 45% of the Gordon Ramsay staple. 'Flatch' is once again Likely to be Canceled and has now fallen behind 'Kat' to become the lowest-rated program on the Fox network (Flatch has a 0.186 average that rounds up to a 0.19 while 'Kat' has grown to a 0.194).
