FOX Cheat Sheet: The Resident & The Cleaning Lady Should Be Renewed, Despite Major Erosion

Television

As we head into 2023, some big questions surround the future of some of FOX’s most popular scripted series.

Despite Fox touting its stellar performance earlier in the season, Monarch has been canceled.

How will the rest of the network’s shows stack up?

Check out what we think will happen below.

1.
The Simpsons – Certain Renewal

The Simpsons - Certain Renewal
Thanks to some football overruns, The Simpsons is up quite a bit vs. last year.

The animated series is the network’s strongest show in the demo based on live + same-day metrics. It will be back.

2.
9-1-1 – Certain Renewal

9-1-1 - Certain Renewal
The series remains one of the buzziest shows on television, and is FOX’s most-watched scripted series.

It is averaging 4.8 million viewers and a 0.69 rating among adults 18-49 in live + same-day numbers.

Not included in these numbers are streaming (FOX says that the season premiere netted 2.1 million viewers across Hulu and FOX now within six days of premiere) and post-airdate DVR numbers.

The series remains a bright spot for the network.

3.
The Great North – Renewed

The Great North - Renewed
This Sunday animated series is currently up year-to-year, thanks to football overruns.

It is currently averaging 1.5 million viewers and a 0.49 rating in the demo.

It has already snagged a renewal. Hooray, right?

4.
Bob’s Burgers – Certain Renewal

Bob's Burgers - Certain Renewal

The series remains one of the network’s highest-rated in the demo (0.45 rating), so it will be sticking around for a while yet.

5.
Family Guy – Certain Renewal

Family Guy - Certain Renewal
The long-running animated series is on par with its previous season, and is still FOX’s #5 show in the demo based on live + same day numbers.

It averages 1.3 million viewers and a 0.42 rating.

6.
Monarch – Canceled

Monarch - Canceled
Monarch was delayed to the fall from midseason, and the numbers have been somber.

After solid sampling out of football in early September, the live+ same day numbers have averaged around 1.7 million viewers and a 0.2 rating in its regular slot.

The series has benefited from DVR and online viewing, but the on-air demo tally could be too low to justify a renewal. UPDATE: Fox has canceled the series after one season.

7.
The Resident – Certain Renewal

The Resident - Certain Renewal
The Resident is down 18% in the demo this year, averaging a 0.35 rating and 2.8 million viewers.

However, the show is stronger with delayed viewing, and given that the show self-starts on Tuesdays, these numbers should be enough to snag a renewal.

8.
The Cleaning Lady – Likely Renewal

The Cleaning Lady - Likely Renewal
The sophomore drama is down almost 30% in the demo this season, averaging a 0.31 rating and 2.1 million viewers.

However, the show is more than doubling its numbers with a week of delayed viewing factored in, signaling that there is still an audience for the show.

It should get a renewal.

9.
Welcome to Flatch – Likely Cancellation

Welcome to Flatch - Likely Cancellation
The series may be up vs. its first season average, but 1 million viewers and a 0.24 rating is nothing to write home about.

FOX will probably leave the live-action scripted space next season.

10.
Call Me Kat – Certain Cancellation

Call Me Kat - Certain Cancellation
Losing 50% in the demo to become the lowest-rated show on a network is not a good look.

Call Me Kat Season 3 is so far averaging 1.1 million viewers and a 0.20 rating.
