ABC shows predicted to be canceled

For The People– terrible ratings, only a sophomore
Splitting Up Together – among the lowest rated non-Friday ABC shows. The only one of ABC’s low rated sitcoms that Disney won’t own in the future.
Whiskey Cavalier– low ratings, freshman show
The Fix– terrible ratings, freshman show

ABC shows predicted to be renewed

The Rookie – As ABC’s spring dramas have tumbled, it’s now the 2nd highest rated 10pm show on the network after The Good Doctor.
Single Parents– lowest rated of the rookie sitcoms, could be close
The Kids Are Alright– recent ratings are poor, now less certain than even a month ago
Fresh Off The Boat – borderline ratings, Disney/ABC is now the owner/producer of the show.
Speechless – terrible ratings, but 3rd season shows are rarely canceled, Disney/ABC is now the sole owner/producer.
How To Get Away With Murder – poor ratings, ABC is now in the habit of “renanceling” (renewal for a final season) it’s s3 and older shows.
American Housewife, black-ish, Grey’s Anatomy, Station 19, The Goldbergs, Schooled – ratings currently in the renewal range, no negative issues.

CBS shows predicted to be canceled

Murphy Brown – same ratings as already canceled Happy Together, not renewed when rookie Fall sitcom The Neighborhood was renewed.
Fam – last week’s 0.7 is too low for a spring premiere sitcom to survive, a recovery could change the prediction again

CBS shows predicted to be renewed

Madam Secretary – terrible ratings (its syndication deal keeps it alive), but CBS hasn’t canceled a 5th season drama they produce in recent memory.
Bull – allegations against actor/EP Michael Weatherly threaten renewal of the show, but given history, and the amount of money at stake for CBS, the show is still likely to be renewed.
MacGyver – George Eads has left the show, but he’s irrelevant. The show is guaranteed renewal.
