Fox has renewed music competition series The Four: Battle for Stardom. Season 2 is set to premiere this summer. The Four is Fox’s most-watched new unscripted series in four years in the 18-49 demo — where it is averaging a 1.4 rating according to Nielsen “most current” numbers, a mix for seven- and three-day data.
“We have only recently learned of these past allegations regarding Mr. [Charlie] Walk,” Fox said Monday, hours after claims of sexual harassment were leveled at one of the judges of its new competition series The Four: Battle For Stardom.
Fox’s new singing competition series The Four got off to a good start for the network Thursday. Airing at 8-10 p.m., the six-part series opened to a 1.2 rating in adults 18-49 and 3.7 million viewers. That ties with the launch of fellow Fox series Beat Shazam back in May as the network’s biggest unscripted launch in over three years. It was also second in the 8 p.m. hour in the key demo, behind only the midseason premieres of Big Bang Theory and Young Sheldon.
