Guess The First Broadcast Scripted Show To Be Canceled In The 2019-20 Season (Poll)

10232vfit512There can be only one! (first show to be canceled).

The 2019-20 broadcast season starts Monday, September 23, so it’s time to guess which new broadcast primetime scripted show will be canceled first.

For the purposes of this poll, a show has been canceled if:

  • it’s removed from its original timeslot
  • its episode order is reduced
  • the network acknowledges it won’t order any more than the initial 13 episodes

As you may have noticed, networks have kept doomed ratings losers on the air longer than before, usually because they’ve got nothing to replace them with.

What’s your guess for this season’s first show to be canceled?

Included in the poll are all “rookie” broadcast scripted shows currently scheduled to premiere before January, 2020.

Last year’s poll, dominated by teeth grinding anti-fans of Charmed & The Rookie, was loud wrong. The first four shows in the poll were all renewed. Happy Together was the first show canceled on November 28, when CBS declined to order more episodes. At nearly the same time, both Rel & I Feel Bad were also canceled

As they say in Chicago, vote early, vote often.
