FOX has two new comedies, this fall. The Orville premiere did quite well in the ratings, but the next few episodes really fell. Now they’re introducing the Ghosted TV show, about secret government operatives who investigate aliens and other unusual threats. Think of it as an intentionally comedic X-Files. How will Ghosted fare? Cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned.
A single-camera FOX comedy, Ghosted stars Craig Robinson, Adam Scott, Ally Walker, Adeel Akhtar, and Amber Stevens West. Captain Ava Lafrey (Walker) orders the abduction of ex-LAPD detective and current mall security guard, Leroy Wright (Robinson), and former Stanford astrophysics professor and current bookstore clerk, Max Jennifer (Scott). She then recruits Leroy and Max to work for the a secret governmental agency known as the Bureau Underground. Along with weapons and tech expert, Annie Carver (West), and unidentifiable evidence expert, Dr. Barry Shaw (Akhtar), it is up to them to save the world from all kinds of unusual threats including cryptids, extraterrestrials, and the paranormal.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly in the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.

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.
