Thursday night saw a few irregular airings, with Chicago Med and Scandal taking the week off and The Blacklist: Redemption beginning its short run. On NBC, they had a pretty rough night. Superstore stayed steady, but Powerless slipped a tenth and The Blacklist was down a few tenths from Chicago Med in its special slot. Redemption started very poorly, only mustering a 0.8, down from the Blacklist's performance in the slot last week. ABC had a decent night, with HTGAWM rising for its finale, but Grey's Anatomy falling a tenth. The Big Bang Theory on CBS stayed even with last week's season low, while the remaining comedies all dropped. Fox's reality lineup stayed pretty steady, with Masterchef Jr ticking up. On the CW, both shows fell a tenth, with Riverdale slipping to a new low.


Finals Update: How to Get Away With Murder (-0.1) and Training Day (-0.1) adjusted down.

Last night was easily dominated by ABC's telecast of the Oscars, which pulled about a 8.7* preliminarily, down from last year's preliminary ratings. The Oscar Opening Ceremony immediately preceding it pulled roughly a 5.6, dominating the 7 PM slot. For the remaining networks, Fox grabbed top prize with their comedy repeats, with their 8-10 lineup pulling a flat 0.9 up until the final half hour, which pulled a 0.8. NBC's Dateline received a 0.8, tied with the latest Friday airing. 60 Minutes aired two episodes, pulling in low-end 0.8s and 0.7s.


*Please note that as the Oscars aired live, the ratings are subject to adjust greatly. Take these preliminary ratings with a grain of salt.

Tonight, ABC will premiere their gay rights-themed miniseries When We Rise. The series has received a solid amount of promotion from ABC and will receive a special one hour Bachelor lead-in for its two hour premiere (it will then air Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 9-11). While the lead-in doesn't necessarily mean it will be a success, it will likely help to boost the show a bit. Do you think this series can give ABC some success or will it fail like most other midseason entries?

When We Rise, 9 PM on ABC

NBC's newest drama series Taken (based upon the film) premieres Monday following the season premiere of The Voice. Obviously NBC is hoping for more success than they had previously in the timeslot with Timeless. How do you think that Taken will rate in its series premiere? Vote in the poll, and you can leave your predictions for Taken (as well as the size of its lead-in if you wish) in the comments!


KEY
  • Show title (Average adults 18-49 rating / Most recent rating)

CANCELED
  • Grimm (0.8 / 0.8) [Final season]
CERTAIN TO BE CANCELED
  • Emerald City (0.7 / 0.6)
  • Timeless (1.1 / 0.9)
Despite reports of a slight chance of renewal for Timeless, I am sticking to my prediction. Sure, the show may have a lot of inside support and an opportunity to air in a different time slot, but, in the end, a decision of renewal is certainly not likely. It is just not a good business/financial decision for NBC and that is going to be the biggest factor deciding its fate.

The same exact things stated above for Timeless can also be said for Emerald City. Do not get your hopes up for a season 2.

LIKELY TO BE CANCELED
  • The Blacklist: Redemption (0.8 / 0.8)
  • Blindspot (1.1 / 0.8)
  • Powerless (0.9 / 0.7)
The new spin-off of The Blacklist, similarly-titled The Blacklist: Redemption, premiered to a 0.8 rating following a 0.9 rating of its mothership in the previous hour. I usually like to start off shows that have only aired one episode in the "could go either way" category, but this is a show that wasn't even needed in the first place and will certainly not be needed next season. NBC already has too many shows that have already been renewed, will certainly get a renewal, or are currently in the development stage to have room for this arguably-DOA spin-off.

The series premiere of Powerless managed to get a 1.1, but it quickly fell to a 0.8 and then a 0.7 for the following two episodes. Although NBC seems to be looking to expand its comedy lineup in the coming seasons, Powerless isn't strong enough to be part of that future. NBC will have Superstore, The Good Place, Will & Grace, most likely new multicam Relatively Happy, and probably a few more single cams for next season. Say goodbye to Powerless...

COULD GO EITHER WAY
  • None
LIKELY TO BE RENEWED
  • The Blacklist (1.1 / 0.9)
Although The Blacklist: Redemption will probably be canned, the mothership most likely has at least one season left in it. And that is exactly what I think is going to happen, The Blacklist will be renewed for a shortened, final season just like Chuck, Parenthood, Parks & Recreation, Grimm, and other veteran NBC shows in the past.

CERTAIN TO BE RENEWED
  • Chicago Fire (1.6 / 1.6)
  • Chicago Med (1.3 / 1.2)
  • Chicago P.D. (1.4 / 1.3)
  • Law & Order: SVU (1.5 / 1.3)
RENEWED
  • The Good Place (1.3 / 1.1)
  • Superstore (1.2 / 1.1)
  • This Is Us (2.6 / 2.5) [Two-season renewal]
The newest addition to NBC's renewed category is none other than...Superstore! This marks yet another correction prediction for The TV Ratings Guide. Here's to going for a perfect record this season...

On an all-original night, the Bulls at Cavaliers game (0.8) over on ABC was able to beat out any other program. On the other hand, the NBA Countdown special preceding it (0.5) remained low. 

After weeks of 0.4s, and even a 0.3, CBS's Ransom (0.5) saw a rise to new rating heights leading into 2 hours of 48 Hours (0.6/0.7). 48 Hours was even at 9 but up a tenth at 10. 

NBC took a break from Dateline and SNL for some Hockey (0.6). The game was a bit below what Dateline repeats would do in the hour. 

FOX offered Boxing (0.5) and it was a good bit above last week's miserable drama repeat results.
