The Brave Is Likely To Be Canceled

While the show’s ratings are on the low end of what might get some rookie shows renewed (79% of NBC’s scripted avg), recent history has demonstrated that NBC won’t accept marginal ratings for shows in its time slot.

ICYMI: Ten Days In the Valley was canceled last week and exiled to December Saturdays.

New this season: Since in-house productions received far more than the typical historical advantage in Spring 2017 renewal decisions, the production company(ies) have been added after each show’s name in the table above for reference.

Where did the emojis go? Why did the prediction table change? Explained in the Week 24 post last season.
