Cliffhanger Holy Bubble Show: Just hours before its initial presentation, Fox lets the spell of three bubbles appear in the air.
The network early Monday officially renewed 9-1-1: Lone Star, call me kat, Welcome to Flatch, Crime Scene Kitchen and The Masked Singer for the 2022-23 television season. This leaves three series – the 9-1-1 mothership, the resident and Duncanville — in Fox’s question mark column.
The network says “additional series renewals” are coming, and sources confirm that the resident and 9-1-1 will probably be among them (negotiations are said to be on the wire).
“We are in good faith negotiations with [studio] 20,” Fox Chairman Charlie Collier told reporters on Monday regarding Resident and 9-1-1. “Based on our long history with this company, we think we’re in pretty good shape.”
As reported on Friday, freshman shows our kind of people and Swivel will not be returning for Season 2 (joining the previously canceled The big jump).
TVLine’s 2022 Renewal Scorecard has been updated to reflect the latest pickups.
Meanwhile, in a first, Fox didn’t reveal its official fall schedule on Monday as the network opted for more of what one source describes as a “portfolio” approach (which is a fancy way to say that the calendar was not quite locked in yet). ). The network confirmed that its newly ordered series included a missing person procedure Alert and the crime anthology directed by Michael Chiklis Accused. (They join the long-delayed country music soap opera Monarch.)
Among Monday’s renewals, call me kat is averaging just under 3 million total weekly viewers and a 0.6 demo rating (with Live+7 playback), down 29 and 33 percent from its first-year numbers. Of the seven comedies Fox aired this TV season, it ranks No. 1 in ratings and third in the demo. Welcome to Flatchon the other hand, does not quite average 1.2 million weekly viewers and a demo rating of 0.2 (with live playback +7 taken into account).
lone star is averaging 7.5 million and 1.0 this season, down a little steeper from its previous averages, but still ranks #2 in viewership among all Fox entertainment programs and third in the demo (rear 9-1-1 and The Masked Singer).
