Below are the Week 15 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.

The Floor: Rob Lowe-hosted game show The Floor made its debut on Fox in stellar fashion. The series opened with a sturdy 0.41 rating in the Adults 18-49 demographic on the second day of the new year. The Floor grew significantly from its Celebrity Name That Tune lead-in (0.29) and was the second highest-rated program on Tuesday night. Outside of The Masked Singer and cartoons boosted by football, it is very difficult to find a show on Fox that can break the 0.4 barrier. The Floor probably hasn't found its floor yet, but it begins as a Likely Renewal nonetheless. It is no easy feat to build on a lead-in by a full tenth, so it is clear that there is legitimate interest in this series. If it can show signs of stability or grow from here, it will solidify its status as a reliable player.

We Are Family: Anthony Anderson game show We Are Family was not quite as impressive as The Floor but still looked healthy on premiere night. Family launched on January 3rd with a 0.35 rating and built slightly on its I Can See Your Voice lead-in (0.31). If The Floor was not in the picture, this would have seemed like a breakout hit for Fox, but it is a respectable starting point regardless. We Are Family also falls into the Likely Renewal category despite having a softer launch than Lowe's show. Fox has had a surprisingly decent start to the new year, and this game show has been a big part of that success.

I Can See Your Voice: After almost two years off the air, I Can See Your Voice made its way back to the Fox network with a modest 0.31. Considering that it ended with a 0.28 back in March 2022, this is a semi-decent return for the Ken Jeong game show. Though it was definitely overshadowed by the strong ratings that The Floor and We Are Family put up, this has the potential to be more stable than those two as it has been around long enough to have an established audience. In other words, there is no need to worry about post-premiere rejection happening here. Another Likely Renewal

Celebrity Name That Tune: Celebrity Name That Tune shot up to a new season high for its latest episode, garnering a 0.29 rating on January 2nd. Though it is possible that The Floor rubbed off on it or higher viewing levels helped it out, this is definitely less bleak than its fall performance. The series is still Likely to be Canceled, but that may change if it can stay at this higher level.
