Almost Human aired the season finale of its first season Monday night, but fans were left wondering if the show would even be picked up for a second season.

Since its debut in November, Almost Human has gone down in ratings, finally stabilizing at around 5.5 million viewers per episode. The season finale was watched by 5.6 million viewers and scored a 1.5 in the 18-49 demographic, losing to CBS, NBC and ABC's latest offerings of How I Met Your Mother, The Voice and The Bachelor, respectively.

Almost Human, which stars Karl Urban, Michael Ealy, Minka Kelly, Mackenzie Crook, Michael Irby and Lily Taylor, has actually been one of the most-watched shows from Fox's current lineup. The Tuesday comedy lineup of New Girl and Brooklyn Nine-Nine is struggling between two and three million viewers per week. Glee's move to Tuesday has also resulted in declined ratings.

Other new shows like Rake and Enlisted have failed to catch on with audiences and have subsequently struggled in the ratings.

Now that Fox has canceled The X Factor, which took up three hours of programming per week for the network, the network may see Almost Human as an asset going into the 2014-2015 television season.

Almost Human is set in the year 2048 when crime has gone up exponentially due to robotics and technology. In order to fight this crime, human police officers are required to work with android partners.

Overall, Almost Human has been a relative critical success, garnering a score of 62 on Metacritic, which signifies generally favorable reviews among TV critics.
