CW Renew/Cancel: A 0.2 Likely Won't Cut it For Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Why is Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Now "Likely to be Canceled"? 
Moving to Fridays for the already low rated show definitely must have signaled that the CW doesn't expect much more than a 0.3. When it got a 0.2 for the premiere, and scored its second straight 0.2, and less than 500,000 viewers, the time has come for me to make a call. 

Not to mention, it's capped at 13 episodes. That alone means that it's more expensive to produce than No Tomorrow, when you factor in the additional time it takes to film musical numbers (In "Love Kernals", Rebecca basically sang that the video ate up the show's production budget.) in a way that may cost millions. It's also filming in California. According to the California Film Commission, the approved expenditures total $29,518,000, and the credit reservation was for $5,873,000. It's probable that the show could get by to a third season, but right now, I don't think it's likely. If it gets renewed, it may need to cut its budget. 

In addition, Crazy Ex was notoriously predicted as certain to be canceled last season, and I was wrong on its prediction. I could be wrong again but perhaps putting it at likely to be canceled would do the trick.
