After three seasons, Fox has canceled the comedy Call Me Kat, starring Mayim Bialik, a former cast member of The Big Bang Theory. The show’s season (now series) finale aired on the network the day before the news broke.
In the film Call Me Kat, Bialik plays a lady who quits her position as a college lecturer to start a cat cafe. The BBC sitcom Miranda inspires the TV show in which Miranda Hart stars and develops.
Fox Entertainment, Warner Bros. TV, BBC Studios America, Big Bang co-star Jim Parsons’ That’s Wonderful Productions and Mayim Bialik’s Sad Clown Productions collaborated on the project.
The comedy leaves the network after this season, joining The Resident and 911, while 911 will go to ABC for its seventh season. Both programs are produced by Disney’s 20th Television, making 911 a 911 production on its new network.
Fox has recently tried to seize ownership of more of its content. While it had a small investment in Kat, Disney now fully owns both 911 and The Resident, even though they originally belonged to Fox before transferring 21st Century Fox assets to the Mouse House in 2019.
This season, Call Me Kat’s on-air ratings decreased, as is typical for much of network television. In Nielsen’s seven-day ratings, the show averaged 2.23 million viewers and a 0.37 rating in the key ad demographic of adults 18-49.
These numbers are down 24 and 38% from the 2021–22 season. As usual, the show’s streaming information is secured. Posted on Twitter by Variety on May 6, 2023:

The show’s cast also stars Swoosie Kurtz, Kyla Pratt, Julian Gant, Cheyenne Jackson, and Bialik. Midway through the third season’s filming, Leslie Jordan, a regular, passed away in October 2022. The show wrote off his character by having him wed John Griffin and go to Tahiti.
