Fox cancels Rosewood! Say it ain't so!
Rosewood, starring Morris Chestnut and Jaina Lee Ortiz, was a success story when it launched in fall 2016 with little fanfare but drew solid ratings as a Wednesday night 8 PM anchor leading to Empire and landed an early Season 2 renewal.
But this past fall, Rosewood was moved to Thursdays where it struggled away from Empire’s halo. The series was eventually moved to the low-trafficked Friday night. In its second season, it averaged a very modest 3 million viewers and a 0.7 Live+same day 18-49 rating.
