Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and FX have had a pretty successful partnership over the last several years. Their American Horror Story is still the cable network’s best scripted performer, and newcomer Feud, currently ranks second. Now they’ve introduced the Pose TV show, which they co-created with Steven Canals. Does it have what it takes to land in the FX top-three? Will Pose be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
An FX musical dance drama, Pose features the largest cast of transgender actors in series regular roles, as well as the largest recurring cast of LGBTQ actors in a scripted drama. The series stars Evan Peters, Kate Mara, James Van Der Beek, MJ Rodriguez, Dominique Jackson, Indya Moore, Hailie Sahar, Angelica Ross, Billy Porter, Charlayne Woodard, Ryan Jamaal Swain, Angel Bismark Curiel, and Dyllón Burnside. It revolves around several segments of society in New York City in the 1980s — ball subculture, Trump-era excess, and the downtown social and literary scenes — as it explores people from various walks of life.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.

Cable ratings are typically released within a day or so of the show’s airing, except for in the case of weekends and holidays. They are sometimes harder to come by so there may be occasional delays or gaps.
