15. Lethal Weapon

Number of seasons: 3

Network: FOX

Why it’s in danger: There shouldn’t be too much surprise to hear that this show is on the list, especially if you’re a fan of it. Lethal Weapon saw a huge, controversial change at the start of the third season that led to a major drop in viewership.

Whatever the truth behind the rumors is — this isn’t about that — FOX needs people to tune into this series and they’re not. While the live viewer ratings isn’t the only factor taken into consideration for renewals and cancellations, they are a big part of the decision.

Lethal Weapon sits in the bottom five shows from FOX. While this is just ahead of the recently canceled The Gifted, it’s below the also recently canceled Rel. And with all the behind-the-scenes drama continuing and Damon Wayans talking about leaving the show after this season, there doesn’t seem to be much left for the show to continue.

I wouldn’t be surprised if FOX tried a couple of new shows on Tuesday nights and completely changed up the current lineup. Lethal Weapon just isn’t working.

Chance of renewal: Unlikely to make it to a fourth season in May 2019.
