The hype is gone, the show had it's chance, and it didn't live up to it. Just look at the ratings trendThe next option then would be to have the muppets just be the muppets, without humans, which is something I would REALLY want to see, but I doubt the general public would last five minutes watching a show with no "famous" celebrity.

Week 1-2 was a hit, those are definetly ratings hits regardless of the drop anything above a 2.0 and without a leadin is spectacular.
Week 3 It got a 1.7 still very good for a selfstarter, again obvious renewal
Week 4 Okay now things change, a 1.3 is still okay but not the best.
Week 5-6 Two 1.4s very respectable, this is about the time it got a full season pickup, I mean not the high ratings that ABC was wanting but good numbers in a trouble timesloT.
Week 7-8 Two 1.2s, that's okay, but in comparision its leadouts weren't doing much better with Fresh off the Boat and Agents of Shield at a 1.3 so still nothing special but Disney would probably still renew it.
Week 9-10 Two 1.1s, getting a little shaky more of a tossup untill you see the other shows of the night did a 1.2 and 1.3, not much better.
So if the show had ended there I would have said this is getting a renewal, sure it's ratings declined, but it was doing on par with it's Tuesdays compainions and the Disney synergy helps, but then.
Week 11-12 Disasterous after heavy advertising the new episodes returned to ratings below a 1.0, not looking good for a renewal, and it's not even close to Fresh off the Boat. Also, episode 12's rating of 0.8 and 2.7m was lower than a repeat of the pilot that aired on the Friday after the premiere with a 0.8 and 3.5m and that had just a 1.1 Last Man Standing leadin while the new episode had a 1.2 Fresh off the Boat leadin. Overall, don't give up all hope, it's doing terrible, but you never know what Disney synergy can do, but lower your expectations a bit.
