Many of Fox's series have already been renewed for another season. What does the future hold for the rest of their TV shows? Cancelled or renewed for 2014-15? We'll have to wait and see.
How does Fox decide what to cancel or renew? They look at a lot of different factors but the ratings play a very large role. The higher the ratings, the better chances a show has of surviving. Here's how the network's shows are doing so far: »

You can never have too much of a good thing, or so the old saying goes. But in Andre Braugher‘s case, you can have so many Primetime Emmy acting nominations (eight to be exact), that you’ll need a few moments — and perhaps a little help — to remember ‘em all.
Asked during a phone conversation how it feels to have scored nods for four separate series-regular roles (in addition to two nominations in the miniseries/movie genre), Braugher quickly lists Homicide: Life on the Street »
Space travelers have invaded TV’s kiddie-oriented Sprout network.
Tykes viewing a recent broadcast of the animated series “Justin Time” on the NBCUniversal-owned outlet may have been surprised to see the actual show shrink into the center of the screen as a group of animated animal astronauts surrounded it and started to comment on the action. Yet that surreal tableau is indicative of the aggressive maneuvers it sometimes takes to get a TV show – even one aimed at tater tots (young couch potatoes) – off the launching pad.
To get the word out about “Astroblast!,” a new original animated series set to debut on Sprout July 12th and then run seven days a week, the network is using an unorthodox means of promotion. About ten times per day in the week leading to the debut of the new program this Saturday, certain Sprout programs are being used for what Andrew Beecham, »

Fox tends to vary its fall launch strategy, depending on its baseball playoff commitments, its desire to premiere shows in summer, overpriced contracts signed with Simon Cowell, etc. For the 2014-15 season, most of the new and returning fall shows will be debuting within the month of September, with new reality series "Utopia" starting things early with a three-night premiere, the much-hyped "Gotham"/"Sleepy Hollow" pairing coming during the first night of the official broadcast network TV season, and other shows scattered around. "Utopia" will air its first three episodes on Sunday, September 7, Tuesday, September 9 and Friday, September 12, to try to stoke interest in the new open-ended series where contestants try to build a new civilization from scratch. "Hell's Kitchen" comes back in the middle of that week on Wednesday, September 10. Returning Tuesday comedies "New Girl" and "The Mindy Project" are back on Tuesday, September 16, while teen drama "Red Band »

Fox is rolling out a good chunk of its fall lineup outside of premiere week, it announced Thursday, including early starts for multi-night reality series “Utopia” and new drama “Red Band Society.”
“Utopia” kicks the net’s fall off with a special three-night launch, starting Sept. 7 on a special night, Sunday, that will allow the network to provide it with an NFL lead-in. It will then begin its regular weekly schedule of an hour on Tuesday and Friday that same week.
Following the second Tuesday episode of “Utopia,” Fox will launch early premieres for returning comedies “New Girl” and “The Mindy Project.” This will give the shows several weeks without comedy competition, as NBC will air expanded episodes of “The Voice” on the night to start the season.
“Hell’s Kitchen” will get cooking on its new season on Wednesday, Sept. 10 with a two-hour premiere. The following week, its regular »

Fox is the fourth of the five major networks to reveal their fall premiere schedule, and it kicks off in early September with a three-part launch plan for Utopia, a new reality series that moves 15 everyday Americans to an undeveloped location and challenges them to create their own civilization. (Utopia will then air two nights a week, on Tuesday and Friday.)
Other highlights of Fox’s roll-out plan include the long-awaited, hour-long Family Guy/The Simpsons crossover episode and October premieres for three series, including the new sitcom Mulaney.
On tap for midseason are the Glee‘s 13-episode farewell run, »
The Batman prequel series, a high-risk reality experiment, and a Simpsons/Family Guy crossover are among the shows that just received a fall premiere date. Fox just announced the following schedule, which includes an early head start for reality series Utopia in early September and comedian John Mulaney’s new comedy series among the rear guard in early October.
One interesting scheduling tidbit: Launching Gotham on Sept. 22 means Fox isn’t blinking from putting its most-anticipated new drama right up against CBS’ top-rated Big Bang Theory on Mondays at 8 p.m.—that’s the same launch date as the Big Bang eighth-season premiere. »

Fox announced its lineup of fall premiere dates Tuesday, and it includes some answers about just when we'll see beloved programs return, as well as the debuts of new series.
Among the highlights is the premiere of the highly-anticipated crossover episode between "The Simpsons" and "Family Guy" -- dubbed "The Simpsons Guy" -- which will drop in a special one-hour block on September 28. Sundays are seeing a bit of a shakeup this year, with sophomore sitcom "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" moving over to the night from Tuesdays; new sitcom "Mulaney" will also find its home on Sundays, when it makes its series debut on October 5.
Experimental reality show "Utopia" will have a three-part premiere, set to air on September 7, 9, and 12 before switching to its normal timeslot on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Another notable facet of the schedule is one glaring omission: "Glee," which just had its episode order slashed from 22 to 13 episodes. It's now being saved for midseason, »

Fast National ratings for Tuesday, July 8, 2014. On a slow, boring Tuesday night, NBC dominated primetime in most measures with a repeat of "America's Got Talent" and a new "Night Shift." "Night Shift" was down a little bit from last week, "Extreme Weight Loss" added a couple viewers and nothing else was particularly notable on Tuesday. On to the numbers... Among adults 18-49, NBC averaged a 1.6 rating for Tuesday night, well ahead of the 1.0 rating for ABC in the key demographic. CBS was third with a 0.9 key demo rating, followed by Fox's 0.5 key demo rating and the 0.3 key demo rating for The CW. Overall, NBC averaged an estimated 7.42 million viewers and a 4.6 rating/8 share for Tuesday primetime, topping CBS' 4.4/8 and 6.63 million viewers. ABC was third with a 2.2/4 and 3.36 million viewers, still well in front of the 0.8/1 and 1.18 million viewers for Fox. The CW averaged 823,000 viewers and a 0.6/1 for Tuesday. 8 p.m. »

NBC has won another Tuesday in key demos behind an “America’s Got Talent” repeat and an original episode of drama “The Night Shift,” which continues to rate as the summer’s top new series.
Of note on Tuesday afternoon, the Germany-Brazil soccer match in the FIFA World Cup averaged a 4.1 overnight household rating on Espn, according to Nielsen, the best ever for a semifinal game on the network. Four years ago, the comparable contest (Uruguay vs. Netherlands) did a 2.8 rating.
Looking at primetime, “America’s Got Talent” averaged a 1.7 rating/6 share in adults 18-49 and 7.9 million viewers overall from 8 to 10 p.m., making it easily the night’s No. 1 series in the demo, while tying a repeat “NCIS” on CBS as the leader in total viewers. It was followed by “The Night Shift” (1.3/4 in 18-49, 6.4 million viewers overall), which won its hour among the broadcasters and came within a »

Forget the World Cup’s USA-Portugal-Ghana-Germany nightmare. A competition category that pits fans of Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Breaking Bad, and Teen Wolf against each other is a real “Group of Death”—and that’s just the TV Dramas.
After announcing the nominees for its Fandom awards last month (including everything from best ship to best new fandom), mtvU has upped the ante today to announce the contenders for the big prize: Fandom of the Year.
Culled from four categories (Movies, TV Dramas, TV Comedies, and Animation), the 32 nominees will duke it out through online voting on the network’s website. »

Kevin Smith has been on this site quite a lot recently with talk of Clerks III (see here and here), Star Wars Episode VII (see here and here) and being rumoured and subsequently denying his involvement in the fake script for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
So, it was quite smart of the director to use this time to promote his upcoming movie, Tusk.
On his blog Silent Bob Speaks, Smith debuted the poster while squashing reports he had written the leaked script. He writes…
While you’re here, however? That script for Tusk that I wrote? We turned into an actual movie that’s coming out this fall from A24. Oddly enough, it’s the best film I’ve ever made (or at the very least, the most interesting). Thank you all for saying #WalrusYes on Twitter last year. Can’t wait to show you the movie. In the meantime, »
