Last year, Fox launched 10 new shows and ended up cancelling most of them. How will the network do in the ratings this time around? 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, Bob's Burgers, Bones, Bordertown, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Cooper Barrett's Guide to Surviving Life, Empire, Family Guy, Gotham, Grandfathered, The Grinder, Hell's Kitchen, The Last Man on Earth, Lucifer, MasterChef Junior, Minority Report, New Girl, Rosewood, Scream Queens, Second Chance, The Simpsons, Sleepy Hollow, World's Funniest, and The X-Files.Read More… »
According to a new report from The Wall Street Journal, Time Warner is in the early stages of conversations that would see the media giant buy 25% of Hulu. Seems rational enough to me. But in the story, one of the ideas that is floated is that Time Warner is worried about cord cutting and looking to downplay or even end one of the main functions of Hulu as a service by doing away with next-day streaming episodes of current TV shows. If it's true, then my relationship with Hulu Plus will end immediately after a very happy nine year subscription to the service. I was an early adopter, first signing up in late 2007, and, yes, I would love to cut the cable cord completely. I have Charter Communications as my cable/Internet provider right now, and my service on the cable side is, in a word, awful. I detest cable. »
