Changes from Last Week:
What Would You Do? has been moved to a certain renewal, I don't see ABC cancelling a dirt cheap filler news show, that has been around a long time, so I have upgraded it from a Likely Renewal to a Certain Renewal, as ABC will most likely shove it wherever they need it, whenever they need it.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
World's Funniest has been moved to Likely to be Renewed. Airing on Fridays, and on FOX has its perks. The series pulled the same numbers as the more expensive, and Tuesday aired show, The Grinder. World's Funniest is most likely very cheap, and it in all honesty, it did not do too bad for FOX Friday.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm moving Beyond The Tank back up to Watching (thanks to Theratingsjunkie for some insight on the situation I didn't know). As I have read, ABC could most likely use the show as a filler or backup if a show fails. I know its ratings are really bad, but it is probably cheap, and like many people have said it could be used anywhere.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Strong starts as Watching. I have put Strong at watching because although it had mediocre premiere ratings (1.0/0.8), those ratings are ok for a very cheap reality show. But, the reason it is put at Watching is because I don't have enough data to push it to a renewal or cancellation. This week, it may drop to a 0.2 and I'll have to move it to a Cancellation prediction. But, it may score a 1.0 or stabilize at a .8 or .9, which as I said earlier, isn't too bad for a cheap reality show. And NBC has renewed shows that scored a 1.0, with the show being more expensive, so I could see them renewing this if it stabilizes around a 1.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
American Grit starts as Watching. For starters, it is on FOX, so a 0.8 is acceptable for them, especially for a reality show. FOX has renewed shows that caught more than American Grit (scripted shows) that pulled only a decimal point higher in their ratings. The reason it does not have a renewal predicted is because it may drop substantially next week, or grow, I don't know yet. The prediction may change based on next week's ratings. Stay tuned.

What do you think of the predictions? Let me know in the comments below! I know it was a lot of changes, but in less than a month, I will have to have final predictions made, and I don't want to wait to the last minute.
