Cancelled & Renewed FOX TV Shows for 2011-12

Fringe TV showThe FOX network consistently wins the season in the all-important 18-49 demographic category but that doesn’t mean that any show is safe if they don’t perform. Is your favorite FOX TV series returning or has it already been cancelled? What TV shows have been renewed for another season?

Here’s a list of all of the regular FOX TV shows that have aired (or are expected to air) during the 2011-12 season (roughly September 2011 – August 2012).

Using this “cheat sheet” you can tell where your favorite FOX TV series stands; how many episodes are in the current season, when it’ll be back on the air and, of course, if it’s already been renewed or cancelled.

If you can’t find a particular FOX program on this list, it may have been cancelled last season (2010-11) or perhaps the one before (2009-10).

    Cancel Napoleon Dynamite and Bob’s Burgers they are both unfunny and waste time on Sunday night lineup

    Sorry guys, the biggest demographic will never see 62 again, it’s retired, with time on hand and discretionary income. Need to update your stats, the baby boomers are big fans of Fringe and Terra Nova and Alcatraz–and their paid off homes and free time give them the edge in the market place. Just get the right market place.

    I know it’s fourth grade math, but you ought to stick those viewer nose counters on the computers and the over 65 crowd, your demographics are so screwed up its no wonder the country can’t get out of the recession!

    18-49 was big news after 1946—those “kids” are now 65 and like a good story just as much as anyone else.

    Try again.

      Doesn’t matter. What the ratings actually record are the commercials. The 18-49 demo is the group most likely to go out and buy the products advertised.

    DO NOT CANCEL RAISING HOPE! It is the only reason I suffer through Glee and The New Girl. It is the finniest show on Fox!

    Fox do not cancell Bones it is one of the very best shows on TV and the only FOX show I watch. The finder shoould get lost. I am sick of Bones being removed from the schedule all the time. I and my friends want Bones and we want to see it go into a 8th season.
