Below are the Week 24 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. Scripted and reality are represented in their own separate charts.



Farmer Wants a Wife: The most recent episode of Farmer Wants a Wife posted a 0.20 rating in the Adults 18-49 demographic and was a hundredth higher than it was the week prior. Though that may seem mildly encouraging, it was still a full tenth lower than its Next Level Chef lead-in (0.30). Now that the dust has settled, it appears that Farmer has stabilized in the 0.19-0.21 range. The only problem is that almost everything else in Fox's reality toolbox can perform better than this. Farmer Wants a Wife is currently #14 out of 16 unscripted offerings, only outrating cheap TMZ filler and battered veteran So You Think You Can Dance. The irony is that these ratings would probably be enough for a scripted series to survive on Fox, but the network is doing good enough in terms of unscripted programming that they do not need to keep this one around. As a result, Farmer Wants a Wife remains Likely to be Canceled

Alert: Missing Persons Unit: Alert: Missing Persons Unit grew to a 0.17 rating on Tuesday, April 2nd and built on its Cleaning Lady lead-in (0.15). Though it is always a little impressive when a series improves on its lead-in, a 0.17 is still a 0.17. There is no way to spin things to make a rating like this look solid on a network outside of the CW. Alert is still Likely to be Canceled.

Fox Renew/Cancel March Madness Continues!

Our NCAA-style "March Madness" bracket tournament for Fox will be wrapping up with one final round of voting. Last week, the final four faced off in the semifinals. In the battle between two animation staples, it was Family Guy that beat out The Simpsons in a race that was not quite as close as one would expect. Family Guy took home nearly 60% of the vote, while Simpsons was chosen by a little more than 40% of participants. In the other match, Bob's Burgers completely annihilated The Cleaning Lady. The Belcher family received 82% of the vote, while Cleaning Lady took in a measly 18%. For the final match, it is down to Bob's Burgers and Family Guy. Please vote below!

Note: Though we appreciate everyone who voted, the data depicted in the bracket represents the voting that took place during the one-week span between columns. This is being done for the sake of moving the tournament forward.
