The Precogs should’ve seen this coming: Fox has trimmed Minority Report‘s initial 13-episode order to 10 episodes.
The reduction comes in the wake of the freshman thriller’s disappointing ratings performance thus far. Its most recent Monday outing drew just 2.3 million total viewers and a 0.7 demo rating, down 11 and 22 percent week-to-week and off 26 and 36 percent from its weak premiere.
A Fox insider notes that Episode 10 will serve as a satisfying conclusion to the season. And despite the show’s ratings woes, the current plan is to keep Minority Report on Mondays at 9/8c after Gotham.
