This season, FOX tried breaking up their Sunday night block of animation programming with live-action sitcoms with mixed success. Mulaney was cancelled due to low ratings while Brooklyn Nine-Nine has done well enough to be renewed for a third season. What will happen with The Last Man on Earth? A hit or a flop? Cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned.
A single-camera comedy, The Last Man on Earth follows the life and adventures of an average guy from 2020. After a deadly virus has swept the planet, Phil Miller (Will Forte) is all alone. He used to be just an average guy who loved his family and hated his job — now he’s humanity’s last hope. Is he truly alone?
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 — typically the following morning, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

Note: These are the final national numbers (unless noted with an “*”). These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.
