CANCELLATION ALERT: APB, Son of Zorn, Making History

FOX handed out three cancellations today to freshman shows as APB, Son of Zorn, and Making History were all shown the door.

APB premiered to a surprising 1.5 demo the day after the Super Bowl, equaling its lead-in 24: Legacy. But it crashed to a 1.0 the next week and was fractional after that for the rest of its run. FOX was deservedly criticized for leaving it on the air when it had Lucifer sitting on the bench.

Son of Zorn and Making History were from the same creators (they are also creators of The Last Man on Earth, which was renewed yesterday). Zorn was low-rated but had a couple football-inflated episodes. But with the amount of advance time the animated/live action hybrid needed to make episodes, it seemed less likely as time went on. Making History didn't air until March and got no football inflated episodes and has hovered around a 0.6-0.7 demo for much of its run.

Yet to hear their fate on FOX are New Girl, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Exorcist, Scream Queens, Shots Fired, 24: Legacy, Prison Break, and some unscripted series.
