Predictions Week 4: Connecting Is Likely to Be Canceled

Posted by


Connecting is likely to be canceled. While there’s effectively no current ratings data for comparable NBC scripted shows, a premier 0.3 A18-49 rating says “enjoy it while you can”.

Finally, a new scripted show with a (presumed) future has premiered and allowed a prediction. It might be several weeks until the next one!

TV Grim Reaper’s predictions are for scripted broadcast primetime show renewals for the 2021-22 season or cancellations by the end of the 2020-21 season.
