It’s time to wrap up the reaper’s 2017-18 broadcast TV season of predictions!

The reaper’s 13 misses fell into several broad categories.

Long Standing Rules Broken/Bent

Scorpion became the first CBS Studios drama canceled after its 3rd, 4th, 5th or 6th season in at least a decade. Very surprising and puts at least a bit of doubt into the renewal of CBS s3-6 dramas.

Shades of Blue, Lucifer were extremely rare and surprising third season cancellations. It’s still going to be an usual case before the reaper predicts cancellation for a third season show.

Low Rated Sophomores

The Mick, Designated Survivor, Superior Donuts were low rated sophomores that the reaper thought would survive based on their 2nd season status. Close calls that went the other way. None were big surprises.

Big Sophomore Surprise

Kevin Can Wait cancellation was a big surprise. It was CBS’s highest rated Monday sitcom with shared production between CBS and Sony. The reaper’s going to make the same prediction 10 times out of 10.

Low Rated Freshman Surprise Renewals

A.P. Bio, For The People, Instinct were low rated predicted cancellations that were renewed. All were surprising. Again, the reaper’s going to make those same calls every time.

That low rated rookie that didn’t get renewed.

Fox has a recent habit of renewing a single low rated rookie each season (Scream Queens, Exorcist). The reaper thought it would be LA to Vegas this season. It wasn’t.

Old Low Rated Shows Given A Short Season

Agents of SHIELD, Gotham were both very low rated old shows that were renewed for a short season. At near end of show life, these are calls that can go either way and the reaper’s always going to miss his share of them.

Since folks always ask, the most surprising cancellation was Scorpion (breaks long standing CBS behavior), and the most surprising renewal was For The People (just 57% of ABC’s scripted ratings average).

His 13 misses is the reaper’s second most ever, and his 86% is a tick better than his lowest rate ever.
