The reaper went 14-2-4 15-2-3 on his Fox predictions this season.

Grandfathered was a close call that the reaper thought would get renewed so Fox could avoid a rookie sitcom shut out. That level of PR sensitivity by Fox was an overreach by the reaper. He’ll learn that lesson.

He also missed an early cancellation call on Bones. The two lawsuits over the show’s previous contract finances was the impetus that pushed the reaper into predicting cancellation. Not something likely to occur again, but he won’t jump the gun if it does.

Fox says it’s going to try and continue The X Files, pending the actors schedules, so the reaper’s left that as a toss up. That situation’s never happened before in the reaper’s experience.

4/20/17 Edit: The X Files was finally renewed.
