For years, Sunday nights on FOX belonged to animated comedies. A couple years ago, the network tried reintroducing live-action comedies to mixed success in the ratings. Now, they’re trying a hybrid sitcom with Son of Zorn. How will it perform? Will this show be cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.
On Son of Zorn, a warrior (voice of Jason Sudeikis) from a faraway island in the Pacific Ocean – where everything and everyone is animated — returns to Orange County in California to win back his live-action ex-wife and their teenage son. The live-action cast includes Johnny Pemberton, Cheryl Hines, Tim Meadows, and Artemis Pebdani.
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: 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.
