Fox 2014-15 Season Ratings (updated 3/31/15)

just now | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

A few years ago, Fox had some of the top-rated TV shows on the air. Now, the network is struggling. Which series will be cancelled and which will be renewed? Stay tuned.

How do the execs decide what to cancel or keep? 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.

Fox shows this season (so far): American Idol, Backstrom, Bob's Burgers, Bones, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Empire, Family Guy, The Following, Glee, Gotham, Gracepoint, Hell's Kitchen, The Last Man on Earth, MasterChef Junior, The Mindy Project, Mulaney, Red Band Society, New Girl, The Simpsons, Sleepy Hollow, and Utopia.

New Girl, old/familiar story: Jess & Co. are returning for another season.

Fox has renewed the Zooey Deschanel comedy for a fifth season, TVLine has learned.

Related2015 Renewal Scorecard: What’s Coming Back? What’s Getting Cancelled? What’s on the Bubble?

Oddly enough, the pickup comes as work on Season 5 is already underway. The show remained in production after wrapping Season 4 in order to get a jump on Season 5 ahead of Deschanel’s maternity leave (the actress’ pregnancy is not being incorporated into the show).

'American Idol' cliffhanger: Who will be eliminated this week?

2 hours ago | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Last week, we predicted that Daniel Seavey would be sent packing on "American Idol." But he escaped double elimination as Adanna Duru and Maddie Walker got the chop. However, according to our readers predictions, Seavey is the likeliest of the remaining nine contestants to get the boot this week. What do you think? Make your predictions now and you could win our weekly prize of a $100 Amazon gift certificate and a place of honor on our reality TV leaderboards. It's fun and easy! -Break- Who will win 'American Idol'? See exclusive predictions! I am not convinced that Seavey is on his way out. After all, he wasn't even in the bottom three last week; that dubious distinction fell to Rayvon Owen.  And Seavey has the second most Twitter followers of any of the contestants, with 36,000 subscribing to his @SeaveyDaniel feed (Jax has 38,000 fans of @Jax).  Should I take »

The Voice Recap: Tko and Sympathy

15 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Pharrell Williams can do no wrong in my book — although he came pretty darn close when he anthropomorphized musical notes during the final night of The Voice‘s Season 8 Knockout Rounds.

“Cracking doesn’t mean you hit a bad note,” declared the Coach Most Likely to Be Confused With Yoda to his obvious favorite contestant Lowell Oakley. “It means you’ve given up on the note — and left it out there by itself.”

23 hours ago | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Music's hottest stars hit the stage at the 2015 iHeartRadio Music Awards on Sunday night in Los Angeles -- and we're giving you a front row seat for the must-see performances! Rihanna debuted her new single, "Bitch Better Have My Money," rocking an emerald green Versace fur coat, thigh-high boots and a super-short black dress.

Check out her show-stopping performance below!  Another big musical moment was when Taylor Swift shared the stage with Madonna for a special rendition of "Ghosttown," a song from the Queen of Pop's new album, "Rebel Heart."  The "Living For Love" singer kicked off the low-key performance of her new track with a mysterious guitarist performing behind her, »

Carrie Underwood is finally giving us a glimpse of her baby boy's face! The country cutie took to Instagram to share the first full photo of son Isaiah -- and he's one cute kid. In the pic, the newborn baby is sleeping with his teeny, tiny fingers wrapped around a mini hockey stick for the Nashville Predators. Carrie's husband and Isaiah's daddy Mike Fisher is a center for the team. "The Predators are in the playoffs!" the proud mama captioned the pic. "Just waiting to get called up! #PutMeInCoach."

Remember your chief gripe about the first two seasons of The Following? It was Michael Ealy‘s issue, too.

After watching a few episodes of Fox’s serial killer drama, “I didn’t find the police work to be substantial. That’s just full disclosure,” the actor says candidly. “I kinda checked out.”

Cut to the current season, when Ealy — last seen as gentle android Dorian on Fox’s cancelled Almost Human — was presented with an opportunity to play a new, terrible murderer on the Kevin Bacon-led thriller.

Nick Jonas wowed the crowd at the 2015 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, held Saturday at the Forum in Inglewood, Calif., which seats 17,500 — screaming kids.

The host pulled double duty, kicking off the live show with a medley performance of his hits “Chains” and “Jealous.” Welcomed by a video montage of A-listers chanting his name — Taylor Swift, Heidi Klum and, of course, SpongeBob SquarePants’ Patrick Star — Jonas took the stage, in front of the star-studded audience, including Chris Pratt, Jamie Foxx and Angelina Jolie, who was joined by two of her kids, Shiloh and Zahara.

“A lot of girls in the house are still struggling after One Direction became two directions,” Jonas greeted the crowd, alluding to this week’s news of the boy band losing member Zayn Malik. Poking fun at himself, he quipped, “What’s next, the Jonas Brother?”

Emma Stone won the first award of the night for favorite movie actress. »

Dear Indiana: If you're so antigay, why did you give us these gay icons?

27 March 2015 5:25 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Indiana's coolness took a south bend this week when Gov. Mike Pence signed into law a bill that allows businesses to turn away Lgbt customers on the grounds of "religious freedom." Sort of makes you wish that "not sucking" was a religion.  To remind Indiana lawmakers why their nonsense is, well, nonsense, let's take a look at some gay icons and iconography that originated in Indiana. If you're so concerned about protecting the hatred of gay people, why do these folks below rule so much?    Adam Lambert, our Precious Moments figurine version of George Michael The wailing "American Idol" runner-up came out in the most decadent way possible: with a Rolling Stone cover story and salacious serpentine imagery. Lambert was raised in Southern California but was born in Indianapolis, which basically makes him a living version of "Saved by the Bell."  "Let's Hear It for the Boy" queen Deniece Williams »

Jennifer Lopez Seen Kissing Ex-Boyfriend Casper Smart 9 Months After Their Break Up—See the Pda-Filled Pic

27 March 2015 12:26 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Say what?! Jennifer Lopez was caught smooching her ex-boyfriend Casper Smart earlier this week in Los Angeles. The former duo was seen kissing shortly before J.Lo began taping an episode of American Idol and were reportedly inseparable during most of the day's shooting. The Pda moment, which comes nine months after the two called it quits, is causing many to wonder whether or not they've gotten back together. But E! News caught up with Smart just last week at the premiere of Home—where he was supporting Lopez—and the choreographer cleared the air about the recent romance rumors. "We got a lot of ties.
