While its season two finale aired last night, FOX has yet to cancel or renew the Scream Queens TV show for a third season. Back in August, EP Ryan Murphy said he was looking to broaden the series’ audience in the second season. Did he succeed? Should FOX pick up Scream Queens for a third season, or cancel it?
A campy comedy-horror series, Scream Queens stars Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer, Billie Lourd, Jamie Lee Curtis, Kirstie Alley, Taylor Lautner, James Earl, and John Stamos.
Scream Queens TV Show on FOX Ratings
In its second season, Scream Queens averaged a 0.60 in the 18-49 year old viewer ratings demographic. In addition, season two drew an average total audience of only 1.446 million viewers.
Currently, we are tracking the ratings for 16 scripted FOX series in the 2016-17 television season. Ratings-wise, those numbers land Scream Queens dead last on FOX’s scripted slate, whether sorting by the demo or the total viewership.
By comparison, Scream Queens season one averaged a 1.09 rating in the 18-49 demographic and drew about 2.79 million total viewers. After just two seasons, nearly half the audience seems to have disappeared.
Generally speaking, ratings are the best indication of whether a show will stay on the air. Despite setting Scream Queens season two in a hospital, it doesn’t seem Murphy and crew managed to stanch the bleeding. Still, speak your mind. Take our poll below and tell us if Scream Queens should be cancelled or renewed for season three on FOX?

I like the show. Silly, but enjoyable to me. Lol. I like it. Channel #5 is my fav. Love Zede. Sad Cassidy had to die tho. Wish Taylor could stay around for another season. And I was so psyched to see Denise! I knew she’d pull theu!! Off the bat I thought of Grace as the red devil b/c of her going Loco and then her dad’s death. Personally, I thought she was too strong minded to go crazy, but hey, whatever. Does make for a strong story line. Anyway, it’s a funny show. Try again, I like it. Just… Read more »
I considered this my gulity pleasure show but there’s no more horror in it. It’s low rated because it wasnt what we where promised when it first prememired.
… I will miss Channelowhen though…
Straight up, this has been a disaster of a project for FOX & Ryan Murphy. S2 was greenlit with FOX citing DVR L+3 ratings increases…And they also have a deal with Hulu but i doubt its anywhere in the ballpark to keep production going. Scream Queens was supposed to be a Horror-Comedy but they forget the horror element a lot and it ends up being more of an ornament for the series than actually capitalizing on it.

this show is hysterical……and jamie lee curtis is great in this role….she is so funny……..and yes the rest of the cast is wonderful as well 🙂
Can’t believe the ratings, i must have terrible taste in tv since i love this
Ikr!!?? I love it. It’s along the lines of the scream parodigies. Idk, I just like them a lot. Would like more scare, and maybe don’t spoil the question of who the villain is so quickly, but all n all, it’s hilarious.
