For a post I usually do the second week in May, I’m not waiting any longer to wrap up the 2019-20 broadcast TV season of predictions!

COVID-19 theory fail!

In 2008, the writers strike caused the networks to renew many marginal shows that they’d otherwise have canceled. I theorized that COVID-19 disruptions to the pilot process would cause the same behavior in 2020.

That theory was a complete failure, and instead the broadcast networks made decisions (except for the renewal of Duncanville) that were in line with those they’d have made any other year.

Ten renewal prediction misses (Deputy, God Friended Me, Broke, Carol’s Second Act, Tommy,  Bless This Mess, Schooled, Single Parents, Katy Keene & Lincoln Rhyme) can be attributed at least partially to the failed theory. Several would have been borderline calls in a normal year, so in a non-COVID year, I’d probably have still have missed a couple.

Another COVID related miss

COVID-19 made animated shows more valuable, since their production is far easier under virus imposed restrictions. That’s almost certainly what saved Duncanville. After renewing no rookie animated shows in a decade, Fox renewed two in one season.

Nothing to do with COVID-19!

Fresh Off The Boat was a borderline renewal call that went the other way.

Hawaii Five-0 was in the age range when any CBS drama is potentially at risk due to the terms of its non-public syndication deal. Guessing when those cancellations will happen is effectively impossible for me.

Stumptown & Zoey’s Amazing Playlist were terribly rated freshman shows that were freakishly renewed. Those will always be misses.

Council of Dads and Baker & The Beauty are summer shows and are not included in the predictions or updates.

Update: Edited on 9/16/20 to reflect the unrenewal of Stumptown.

This season’s 65-14 (82%) record was the worst ever, by far. The consolation is that minus the failed COVID related theory picks, this season’s record would have been pretty typical.
