FOX 2013-14 Season Ratings

fox-tv-show-ratingsMany of FOX‘s series have already been renewed for another season. What does the future hold for the rest of their TV shows? Cancelled or renewed for 2014-15? We’ll have to wait and see.

FOX shows this season (so far): 24: Live Another Day, Almost Human, American Dad!, American Idol, Bob’s Burgers, Bones, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, Dads, Enlisted, Family Guy, The Following, Gang Related, Glee, Hell’s Kitchen, Hotel Hell, I Wanna Marry “Harry”, Kitchen Nightmares, MasterChef, MasterChef Junior, The Mindy Project, New Girl, Rake, Raising Hope, Riot, The Simpsons, Sleepy Hollow, So You Think You Can Dance, Surviving Jack, and The X Factor.

Note: You can find the 2014-15 rankings here.

How does FOX decide what to cancel or renew? They look at a lot of different factors but the ratings play a very large role. The higher the ratings, the better chances a show has of surviving.

Check the other networks’ season rankings: ABC | CBS | The CW | NBC


Note: If you’re not seeing the updated charts, please try reloading the page. You can also see them here and here.

A couple of notes about these charts:
These figures are updated automatically as new ratings are released. The averages are based on the final national numbers (live plus same day viewing), unless marked with an asterisk (*). For technical reasons, I have to resort them manually so feel free to let me know if I missed something.

Keep in mind that the demo numbers are typically what’s most important to advertisers. Therefore, that’s how the networks measure success. Advertisers pay more for ad time on a show that has a higher demo rating. Because older viewers don’t count? No, it’s because younger viewers watch less traditional TV and are therefore supposedly harder to reach.

Demo numbers are typically reported using the 10ths decimal place (2.4, for example). In the averages, I’m using an extra decimal for easier ranking.

The networks take into account when shows air on Fridays and Saturdays, nights when TV viewership is lower.

What do you think? Which shows are you rooting for? Which one isn’t as big a hit as you thought? Are you hoping any series will get cancelled to make room for something else?

FOX will keep us nail-biting til the last minute on “24 Live Another Day” renewal. Watched the 12 episodes back-to-back on YouTube (just recently uploaded), and it’s still a rare sign of intelligence. No more food, reality, make-believe/fantasy-land shows – need substance and reality!
PLEEEAAASSE bring it back!!

Please, please do not cancel! Is one of the best, give it more time to settle in and MORE PR!!!! How about a contest to visit island(?) where it is filmed. Story line and every actor just draw you in… If possible an email letting me know when or if new season begins would be great.

‘Almost Human’ is 5th in desired demo, 4th in overall viewership. How/why did it get cancelled before the 9 renewed shows that were doing worse?

Enlisted is the best show Fox has had in a long time, it never got a chance. Please Fox put Enlisted on DVD! I’m begging you!

I honestly cannot understand why every awesome new TV show
Gets canceled.
It’s really upsetting, especially when we are left to wonder
What happens next. Too bad because its been taken from us.
Sorry, it just makes me mad.
No offence to anyone, just saying my opinion. Thanks :)

I loved watching gang related. I started watching the show about 3 weeks after it started but I was hooked. I want to see the show continue. Maybe another network will pick the show up.
