Fox Cancels 'Rel' After Just One Season

Fox has decided to pull the plug on Lil Rel Howery’s ‘Rel’ after just one season.

via TV Line:

The multicamera comedy had a promising premiere but ratings quickly fell off; a January episode drew a series-low 1.2 million viewers, which was barely half of the audience its cancelled predecessor Last Man on Earth grabbed a year prior. Rel‘s (now series) finale, which aired Jan. 13, delivered 2.8 million viewers and a 1.1 in the demo — the series’ best showing since its premiere — but that largely was attributable to the evening’s lead-in: the hugely watched Eagles/Saints NFC divisional playoff.

While the ratings weren’t that great, we’re sure ‘Rel’ co-star Jess Hilarious’ racist and homophobic scandals didn’t help.
