With the fourth season of Fringe less than two months away, FOX entertainment president Kevin Reilly says that he doesn’t expect the show’s ratings to grow. However, he did send some positive vibes in the direction of the sci-fi serial.
Speaking the at FOX press tour Reilly said:
“I don’t expect Fringe to grow.It’s a pretty complex show. If Fringe can do exactly what Fringe did last year, we’re going to be very happy. They’re right in the pocket creatively once again.”
[After all, one of the perks of being a network that thrives on the monster success of American Idol] “is that you can support creative shows that deserve to be on the air.”
Not that “happy” is a guarantee, but it’s positive and that’s good. I’m sure the cynics will scoff, but FOX were true to their word last season. We start anew this season, but hopefully the show and those who watch can do even more to force their hand this time round.
