Breaking In: FOX Sitcom May Be Saved for Season Two

Breaking In season twoWhat a different a day or two can make. After cancelling Breaking In late on Tuesday night, FOX is reportedly reconsidering the decision.

FOX is in talks with Sony Pictures TV (the show’s studio) to find a way to possibly bring it back for a second season. No decision is expected to be made until after next week’s upfronts.

Breaking In debuted in early April to a healthy 3.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 9.82 million total viewers. With the exception of the fact that it lost a large percentage of the American Idol lead-in, that looked very good. The following week, the series fell 26% to a 2.6 rating and 7.79 million viewers.

Ratings fell a bit after that but seem to have evened off at a 2.4 rating. It’s the sixth highest-rated scripted series currently on the network and outperforms the network’s other two live-action comedies. Of course, it also has the best lead-in audience on television.

If Breaking In does get a renewal, this will be the second time that the Christian Slater comedy has cheated death. FOX initially passed on the Breaking In pilot last year but execs changed their minds and gave it a greenlight later on.

What do you think? Does Breaking In deserve a second season to prove itself?

WHAT THE HELL IS FOX THINKING?!?!?! They cancelled “The Good Guys”, now “Lie To Me” and “Breaking In” at the same time! What’s next? Fringe? The execs at Fox seem to have a very serious cranial/rectal inversion problem.
