Jess's Take: Summer Renew/Cancel Comparisons, Part 1

Hey folks, this is Jessica. This is a Renew/Cancel comparison post, and since all predictions are out, here are the current standings.

Show TV Ratings Guide TV Watch US TV Predictor
Mistresses (ABC) Likely to be Canceled Likely Renewal Likely to be Renewed
Uncle Buck (ABC) Certain to be Renewed Likely Cancelation Toss Up
American Gothic (CBS) Certain to be Canceled Toss Up Likely to be Renewed
BrainDead (CBS) Certain to be Canceled Toss Up Likely to be Canceled
Houdini and Doyle (FOX) Certain to be Canceled Likely Cancelation Sure to be Canceled
Wayward Pines (FOX) Toss Up Likely Renewal Likely to be Renewed
Aquarius (NBC) Certain to be Canceled Likely Cancelation Toss Up
The Night Shift (NBC) Likely to be Renewed Likely Renewal Likely to be Canceled

So with that being said, I will highlight some shows in more detail.

Uncle Buck: Today is June 30, which is typically the day that cast options expire. This show was originally slated for midseason, but has been demoted to summer. It's doing okay for summer standards, a lot better than The Whispers. However, we have a new president at ABC. It's hard to tell whether or not Channing Dungey would get the negative PR reputation of canceling both summer scripted shows.

Mistresses: Given that Castle was canceled, and that Nashville moved to a cable network, I wouldn't be surprised if Dungey decides to cancel this marginal performer.

In terms of wild cards, Uncle Buck, American Gothic, The Night Shift, Wayward Pines, and Mistresses are bound to cause some missed predictions this summer. With that being said, let the best prediction site win!
