FOX Predictions: The Last Man On Earth renewed

By on November 1, 2015

Other recent Renewals and Cancellations on FOX:

The Grinder

The Last Man On Earth is doing fairly well on Sundays, especially compared to the network’s other live-action comedies. Because FOX has much bigger fish to fry than The Last Man On Earth, the show will be upgraded to a Likely Renewal.

This week, FOX has awarded a full season to The Grinder, and a day later also gave a nine back order to Grandfathered. Both shows are just barely hanging on to (or even just below) the 1.0 mark. Interestingly, the lower-rating but much more critically acclaimed The Grinder got its back order well before Grandfathered did. Perhaps that means that execs are looking at more than just ratings? Who could have seen that coming?

This week's TV Watch U.S. predictions for the other networks:

  • Elle

    Before the fall season began, it was announced that Gotham, Sleepy Hollow and Empire would have ‘split seasons.’ What does this mean?

    • Daniel Redford

      It means that these shows will go on a longer winter hiatus, essentially splitting the season in two parts. The upside of this is that the shows will air less repeats during the time they are on, and that FOX could decide to air another show in the timeslot to bridge the hiatus.

      • Elle

        Thank you. So given the episode orders, is this 9 in each half for SH and Empire and 11 for in each for Gotham?

        • Daniel Redford

          Not necessarily. The fall part is usually a little bit shorter than the midseason part (something like 10 vs. 12), but for Sleepy Hollow and Empire it could be different because they don’t have 22-episode seasons. As far as I could find, FOX has not announced anything definitive, though.
