Almost Human” debuted last November with solid opening numbers, averaging a 3.1/8 share in adults 18-49 with 9.1 million viewers overall. Though ratings dipped after that (the sophomore episode brought in 6 million viewers), it’s finale in March averaged 5.63 million viewers and a 1.5 in the 18-49 demographic, holding steady with the network’s Kevin Bacon series “The Following.”

While there were hopes for a second season, Fox has left little room in their upcoming slate. The net has greenlit several series, including “Backstrom,” “Hieroglyph” and “Gracepoint,” and renewed past series including “The Following.”
