Predictions Week 24: Indebted Is Likely To Be Canceled

Posted by


Indebted is likely to be canceled. It’s among NBC’s lowest rated shows, and a rookie. Enjoy it while it lasts.

In news from last week, all the NBC Dick Wolf shows (Chicago PD, Chicago Med, Chicago Fire, Law & Order: SVU) scored three season renewals. In rather surprising news, Hawaii Five-0 was canceled and will end this season.

ABC shows predicted to be canceled

Stumptown  – lowest rated ABC show not already canceled

ABC shows predicted to be renewed

For Life  – OK early ratings. Stay tuned.
Mixed-ish, Black-ish  – borderline ratings, stay tuned
Station 19 – third season shows are rarely canceled, no matter the ratings.
The Conners, Bless This Mess,The Goldbergs, Schooled, Grey’s Anatomy, A Million Little Things, American Housewife, Single Parents, The Rookie  – ratings in the renewal range.

CBS shows predicted to be canceled

Tommy – lowest rated CBS show

CBS shows predicted to be renewed

All Rise – it received an order of 9 additional episodes, which is a positive indicator for renewal, but being produced by Warner Brothers is a negative. Recent ratings have recovered into the borderline range, this is a close call.
God Friended Me – 2020 ratings have plunged, putting its future in doubt, another close call.
The Unicorn, Carol’s Second Act – each received only 5 additional episodes ordered, which is a negative indicator for renewal, their spring ratings are borderline, likely at least one of these shows will likely be canceled.
Bob Hearts Abishola – received an order of 9 additional episodes which is a positive indicator for renewal, ratings in the renewal range.
Bull – CBS 4th season drama cancellations are rare.
NCIS: New Orleans, NCIS: LA, Blue Bloods, NCIS – there is some danger (far less for these, now that Hawaii Five-0 has been canceled) for these very old CBS dramas, since their (non-public) syndication deals determine their longevity, although a renewal for a final season is a more likely outcome than cancellation this season. Although, that wasn’t true for Hawaii Five-0!
SEAL Team, SWAT – shows like these two that are produced by the corporate studio and end season 3 with 66 or more episodes have not been canceled in 12 years.
The Neighborhood, FBI, Young Sheldon,  Magnum P.I., MacGyver, FBI: Most Wanted  – ratings in the renewal range.

CW shows predicted to be renewed

Katy Keene – default prediction for any CW show, but  spring premiere CW shows do have a chance of being canceled, stay tuned.

Fox shows predicted to be canceled

Duncanville– low ratings, Bless the Harts already renewed reducing the need for another animated show.
Deputy– ratings borderline, but unlikely Fox will renew it in addition to 911: LoneStar & Prodigal Son.
Outmatched– ratings borderline, and Fox has very limited slots for live action sitcoms.

Fox shows predicted to be renewed

Prodigal Son– ratings still fine. Stay tuned.
The Resident – third season shows are rarely canceled, no matter the ratings.
9-1-1, Family Guy, Bob’s Burgers, Last Man Standing, 911: Lone Star – ratings in the renewal range, no negative issues

NBC shows predicted to be canceled

Lincoln Rhyme: Hunt for the Bone Collector, Indebted, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist  – low ratings

NBC shows predicted to be renewed

Manifest – good enough ratings, stay tuned.
Good Girls – low ratings, but third season shows are rarely canceled, no matter the ratings. Netflix co-production, and history of receiving CA state tax credits are positives.
