“9-1-1” is one of FOX’s highest-rated shows, and is sitting in a very good place in the renew/cancel standings.

The show, which has officially entered into its winter hiatus, averaged a 1.38 live + same day rating this fall, making it the network’s third best performer in the demo. It has experienced a survivable drop from its first season’s 1.7 average, and has held fairly well in the ratings week-to-week. It’ll head into 2019 as a likely renewal.

The same goes for “Empire,” which is still the network’s highest-rated title – despite being down from its previous season’s 1.8 average. Barring any behind-the-scenes creative decisions, the Bear doesn’t see FOX wanting to say goodbye to it.

Key:

The Renew/Cancel Index is the amount above (or below) a replacement-level rating — i.e., the expected adults 18-49 rating of an emergency fill-in show should a series be canceled. For the 2018-19 season, replacement level is a 0.6 same-day rating in adults 18-49 for the Big 4 networks and a 0.1 for The CW. (Read more here.) The index number is taken by subtracting 0.6 (or 0.1) from a show’s average same-day rating.

Friday scripted shows (denoted with an “F” above) on the Big 4 have average ratings about 30 percent lower than those of other nights, therefore their ratings are multiplied by 1.43 (1/0.7, or 70 percent) before subtracting the replacement-level number.

Shows that have ended their seasons have their R/C Index number frozen at the point of their final episode.

(O) – Owned: All other things equal, shows owned by studios affiliated with their networks have a better shot at renewal than those from outside producers.
