With ratings taking a dramatic tumble last week, is Fringe really in danger of not making it to a third season? J.J. Abrams, one of the show's creators, has addressed the deadly rumors, calling Fox "insanely supportive" of the show.

Talking to Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello, Abrams said,

The mood on set and in the writer's room is as good as the ratings are bad, which is to say, wonderful. Luckily, Fox has been insanely supportive, for which we are deeply grateful... [G]iven that we're on one of the hardest [nights] on television, we're just focusing on making the best show we possibly can. What else can we do?

Here's an idea of how Fox can be more supportive: Move the show to another night, already; the Thursday gambit is clearly not working.
