I Feel Bad Is Likely To Be Canceled

I Feel Bad is NBC’s lowest rated scripted show of the year, by far. Enjoy it while it lasts.

All American is likely to be canceled, its premiere ratings were the lowest ever for a Fall premiere on the CW.

With the announcement that it would get just two additional episodes this season, the prediction for Lethal Weapon has been changed to likely canceled. Short episode orders like that are almost always just schedule spackle to fill in a hole (in this case to sync up with The Gifted’s episode total), and a negative indicator on the network’s intentions.

Blindspot is likely to be canceled. It premiered its fourth season to predictably low Friday ratings. Warner Brothers fee cut got the season four it wanted/needed, the reaper doesn’t expect them to get more.

After a week in which its ratings stabilized and many other ABC shows kept falling, the prediction for A Million Little Things has been changed back to likely renewed.
