Below are the Week 6 renew/cancel predictions for the Fox network in the 2023-24 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. The "Y2Y (year-to-year) Change" column denotes how much the series has risen or fallen when compared to its average from the previous season. Because of the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, there is a limited amount of scripted programming this fall. As a result, reality television will now be included in this column.

LEGO Masters: During the month of October, it seemed like 'LEGO Masters' had stabilized in the meager 0.20-0.24 range, a far cry from the 1.1 average it maintained back in 2020 for its initial run behind 'The Masked Singer'. However, 'Masters' finally showed some sign of life on November 2, 2023 when it climbed to a 0.29 rating in the Adults 18-49 demographic and set a new season high. This is a much healthier performance than before and shows that Fox's decision to give it an early renewal may not have been a terrible one. If 'Masters' can stay at this higher level and retain more than 70% of its 'Hell's Kitchen' lead-in regularly then it is no longer looking like much of a dud after all.

Hell's Kitchen: 'Hell's Kitchen' posted another 0.38 rating this week and tied its season high. The program continues to be one of the most reliable on Fox and only rates lower than 'The Masked Singer' when it comes to the network's slate of unscripted programming.

Krapopolis: 'Krapopolis' made a rather shocking comeback on Sunday, October 29 by climbing to a 0.24 rating and retaining 77% of its 'Simpsons' lead-in (0.31). Considering that 'The Simpsons' only grew by a hundredth and 'Krap' grew by six, this is a genuinely solid performance this time around. It is hard to tell if a night like this is a fluke or if the animated sitcom is actually gaining an audience. Fox also has enough confidence in the program to give it the 8 p.m. time slot on November 12, meaning 'Krap' will get the type of massive NFL boost that it received on premiere night. Though it could easily falter from here, 'Krap' is on better footing now than it was when it fell to that dreadful 0.18 rating.

Bob's Burgers: 'Bob's Burgers' grew to a 0.25 rating on the same night that 'Krapopolis' shot up to a 0.24. Though growth of any sort is a plus, more should be expected of a 9 p.m. anchor. Increasing on the 8:30 show by 0.01 in the Adults 18-49 demographic is hardly much of a feat. 'Bob's Burgers' is still a pretty respectable player, but the show excelled more when it aired at the bottom of the hour. It has been successful as an anchor in past years, but it's clear that 'Family Guy' would be better-suited for this more challenging position.
