Last season, The Last Man on Earth had a positive start in the ratings but then the numbers declined as the weeks progressed. FOX renewed it for a second season anyway. Will the numbers drop lower or will they rise this time? Cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned.
The Last Man on Earth begins in 2020 — a year after a deadly virus has swept the plant. Phil Miller (Will Forte) believes he’s the last human alive but soon discovers he’s not alone. The rest of the cast includes Kristen Schaal, January Jones, Mel Rodriguez, and Cleopatra Coleman.
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.

Note: 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.
