‘Minority Report’ Sees Episode Order From Fox Cut From 13 To 10

minority-report-tv-seriesFox has cut its order for freshman drama Minority Report from 13 to 10 episodes.

According to The Wrap, the Steven Spielberg-produced drama has struggled in Nielsen ratings, drawing a o.7 live-plus-same day rating in the 18-49 demo for its most recent episode.

Fox is planning to keep the series in its current time period Mondays at 9 p.m. ET for the time being. The network had planned for the show to break at midseason, with episode 10 serving as the midseason finale.

The episode cut makes the show effectively the first freshman series of the fall season to be canceled. It comes just hours after CBS announced that another Amblin-produced show, Extant, had been canceled, and that the network had ordered a new series from Amblin, American Gothic, for summer 2016.

Minority Report has faced formidable but not overwhelming competition in its 9 p.m. Monday time period, going up against CBS’ Scorpion and the second hours of NBC’s The Voice and ABC’s Dancing With the Stars, as well as Monday Night Football on ESPN.
