FX Cancels Lights Out; FOX Renews Fringe

Both Fox Entertainment Group channels, FX and FOX announced important renewal decisions yesterday.  

Lights Out, FX’s critically acclaimed but low-rated series about retired boxer Patrick “Lights” Leary’s return to the ring. This comes less than four months after FX canceled Terriers, a PI show in much the same position as Lights Out.

Fringe, FOX’s science fiction show about the Fringe division, was placed on Friday nights after underperforming on Thursdays, and received considerably lower ratings. Still, the series was renewed for a complete 22-episode season (and I’m guessing there will be budget cuts).
