NBC Renew/Cancel Watch: Which shows would YOU cancel?


Hello everyone, it's Luke Lambright! Every couple of months, I am going to include a poll in my renew/cancel predictions where YOU get to vote on which NBC shows YOU would cancel. With that being said, welcome to the first edition of "Which shows would YOU cancel?" Go to the bottom of this post to vote in the poll! (My personal predictions and weekly analysis are still included below)

KEY
  • Show title (Average adults 18-49 rating to the nearest tenth)

CERTAIN TO BE CANCELED
  • The Player (0.9)
  • Truth Be Told (0.7)
LIKELY TO BE CANCELED
  • Heroes Reborn (1.4)
  • Undateable (0.8)
ON THE BUBBLE
  • The Mysteries of Laura (1.1)
LIKELY TO BE RENEWED
  • Grimm (1.1)
CERTAIN TO BE RENEWED
  • Blindspot (2.4)
  • Chicago Fire (1.8)
  • Law & Order: SVU (1.6)
  • Chicago P.D. (1.5)
  • The Blacklist (1.5)

WEEKLY ANALYSIS

On Monday, Blindspot earned a 2.2 rating, up from the 2.1 rating of last week's episode. Nothing has changed here: "certain to be renewed." In other news, NBC has increased Blindspot's order, along with the orders of Chicago Fire, Law & Order: SVU, and Chicago P.D., from 22 episodes to 23 episodes each. (You can read about it here).

On Tuesday, Chicago Fire scored a 1.8 rating, following a clip-show of The Voice. This just proves that Fire is not lead-in dependent and is one of NBC's most stable dramas. This prediction is easy: "certain to be renewed."

On Wednesday, The Mysteries of Laura led off the night with a 1.2 rating, up from last week's 1.0. Laura seems to still be fighting for that renewal and will remain on the bubble as of right now. Law & Order: SVU returned to a 1.5 rating after a week off. Nothing has changed as SVU remains as a certain renewal. Chicago P.D. ended the night with a 1.4 rating. Although not the strongest, P.D.is still a certain renewal for syndication and stability purposes.

On Thursday, Heroes Reborn started the night with a 1.3 rating, hitting its highest rating since week two of the broadcast season. I have decided to move Reborn up to "likely to be canceled," but expect the show to fall again in the coming weeks. The Blacklist followed with a 1.4 rating, down from last week's 1.5 rating. However, it is still certain to be renewed. The Player...it's dead.

On Friday, Undateable managed a 0.7 rating*, even with last week. Truth Be Told followed with a 0.6 rating*. Both of these shows are likely to be canceled and certain to be canceled, respectively. Grimm garnered a 1.0* rating, down from the 1.1 rating of its season five premiere. However, it should be noted that its unrounded number was a 0.950, so it will likely be adjusted down to a 0.9. Even though Grimm may soon be going fractional, I still think it will at least get a final, shortened season. Therefore, Grimm is likely to be renewed.

*Friday's ratings are subject to change
