    Though it has always struggled in ratings Fringe has been one of the best shows on television throughout its run. The low ratings have kept it on the bubble for renewal and against all odds it has continued through the fourth season airing now. Fox has given it the opportunity to do so because of the strong reviews, fan support, and it's stable performance on Friday nights. The network has decided to give Fringe a fifth and final season with a 13 episode order. This is great news for fans...

    In a surprising announcement Fox has decided to renew Fringe for a fourth season. Though the show was on the bubble due to its ratings the news was unexpected even more so due to the early timing and full season pickup. The critically praised show has a dedicated and consistent fan base and has performed relatively well since moving to Friday nights. Its budget though had many expecting it to be cut in favor of a new pilot or some reality show that would be cheaper to produce.Ā Even better i...

    In its second week after having been moved to Friday nights the Fox series Fringe delivered a 1.9 rating in the 18-49 demo. That matches the rating it earned with its debut in the time slot and makes it once again the top rated show of the evening.

    Great news today as Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Fox has picked up the sci-fi show Fringe for a third season. While the show has strong support from reviewers and fans it has been in some danger due to the relatively high production costs and ratings that have not been strong enough to make renewal a sure thing.

  • Fringe May Have One January Episode

    Fox may be taking action to help bolster the popular but ratings challenged Fringe. In what would be an interesting tactic a new episode of Fringe may air on January 11th at 9pm. House was just moved up to return on that date at 8pm. This is being seen by most as an attempt to squash the momentum of Chuck which settles into that 8pm on Monday slot after having its third season premiere the night before. Fringe was scheduled to be off until Thursday April 1st. According to the report it wo...
