Airing on Sunday nights, The Last Man on Earth has never been a hit in the ratings and the numbers keep dropping. Will they keep falling? Will the FOX show be cancelled or is it essentially guaranteed to be renewed for a fourth season so there will be enough episodes for a syndication package? Stay tuned.
On The Last Man on Earth, a deadly virus has devastated the planet and Phil Miller (Will Forte) believes he’s the last human alive. Phil eventually finds other survivors and he ends up being alternatingly elated and miserable. What will happen next? The rest of the cast includes Kristen Schaal, January Jones, Mel Rodriguez, Mary Steenburgen, and Cleopatra Coleman.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

Note: Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
