Fox moves Fringe to Friday

FringeIt has been announced that Fox is moving its cult series Fringe to Friday evenings…is the axe far away? Two weeks ago we on ATV Today dared to suggest that Fox could cancel Fringe at the end of its third series. Why? Because ratings are low for the new series and NBC had just cancelled another J.J Abrams series, Undercovers – which actually rated higher than Fringe. So we dared to suggest that Fox could, and it was only a could, cancel Fringe – some fans didn’t like that idea. Seems though we might have just been on the right track. 

Starting from January Fringe will move to Friday evenings which is pretty much the death nail for any show. If you want to kill a show a pretty sure fire way of doing it is to move it to Friday evenings. Fox viewers will remember Dollhouse died a very painful death there only last year – so we don’t hold out hope for Fringe surviving and ratings rising. Which would be a shame because we actually like Fringe but ratings matter.
