Dr. Ken is likely to be renewed.

Its ratings, at nearly 70% of the ABC scripted average, are good enough for renewal for a Friday show, which are typically renewed with ratings 20-30% below those of other nights. It’s also a sophomore show produced by ABC, both elements in its favor.

After its week 2 ratings drop, Emerald City’s prediction has been moved to a “toss up”.

In the realm of “prediction layups,” Empire was renewed for season 4.

The ratings trends for Fall premiere shows in early 2017 will likely change several of the reaper’s predictions. Stay tuned.

With the New Year, the reaper has wiped his ratings slate clean and started his calculations anew beginning with Jan 2 ratings. The numbers will return to the table as new episodes air. His predictions for last Fall’s shows remain the same pending 2017 ratings.
