Truthfully, I don’t believe this show will be cancelled. Compared to other sitcoms currently on fox, it’s numbers are amazing. As well as this, there is all this bs around the show getting worse. Losing viewers doesn’t make a show worse. I believe this show is actually getting better due to the evolution of the characters and how they’ve all changed from s1. If this show gets cancelled it would be a BIG mistake on fox.
