ANALYSIS

Crowded garnered a 1.7 and 1.4 for its two "special preview" episodes behind The Voice this past Tuesday. These aren't TERRIBLE ratings, but they are definitely no indication of how the show will perform in its regular timeslot. It is airing Sunday nights at 9:30/8:30c behind the relatively-weak The Carmichael Show, so that alone makes me think Crowded doesn't even have a chance to begin with. Expect to see Crowded in cancellation territory in the upcoming weeks. However, the show could turn out to be another pleasant, freshman surprise for NBC (see Little Big Shots) and defy the odds by squeezing out a renewal --but this is very VERY unlikely. Tell me what you think in the poll and comments below!
