Grimm (F)canceled


The past week’s news on episode orders and mid-season schedules has produced several prediction changes.

Timeless is likely to be canceled. After its ratings dove last week, the reaper was ready to move its prediction to a “toss up”, but the news that the show received an order for only 3 more episodes, instead of the 9 for a full season of 22, puts the show in additional peril. In the past, an order for anything less than a full “back 9” would mean certain cancellation. Last year however, Code Black, broke that “rule” among non-CW broadcast networks after being renewed after only an 18 episode order.

The Real O’Neals is likely to be canceled. While its ratings as a % of ABC’s average were at the low end of likely renewal for a veteran show, ABC apparently has other ideas, and ordered only three more episodes of the show (in addition to the 13 previously ordered).

Rosewood is likely to be canceled. As a sophomore with a full season episode order, there’s no news to be had from episode orders, but the fact that it will move to Friday mid-season, and join Sleepy Hollow in its fourth season burn off marks it as likely canceled.

The Exorcist was destined for only a 10 episode rookie season, so there was no news to be gained from the lack of more episodes ordered, but it’s ratings are neck and neck for Fox’s lowest with Scream Queens, so the reaper’s moving it to likely canceled as well.

While Pitch also has just a 10 episode rookie season,  the reaper’s leaving it as a “toss up” for now, since its rating last week was right at the Fox median. There will be plenty of time to adjust the prediction before there’s any more news about it.

And in news that’s only slightly more surprising than the sunrise, The Simpsons was renewed for two more seasons.

Note: Early season predictions are likely to change quickly with ratings results. Stay tuned.
