Powerless is likely to be canceled.

Its premiere ratings were OK, but they dove in the second week (0.8) far enough to put it into the “likely canceled” range.

The observant will notice that the only shows now predicted “certain to be renewed” are those with fourth season guarantees from the Syndication Gods, and the one show the reaper had as “certain to be canceled”, Scream Queens, is now “likely canceled”. The line between likely and certain on both sides of the predictions was always a distinction without much of a difference, created so that the reaper could generate more headlines when he needed to come up with five headlines a week. Now that he needs only one headline a week, he’s simplifying things.

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 in 2017.
