ANALYSIS

The Bachelorette, Bachelor in Paradise, MasterChef, Hotel Hell, Masters Of Illusion, Fool Us, Whose Line Is It Anyway?:
Is anything really needed here? All shows have performed equally as well/or better as renewed regular season shows. They will be back.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
MADtv:
You can count on the reincarnation to be back next year. The only reason I'm not grouping the series with all of the other Certain Renewals is because I don't know if The CW is thinking of this as just a limited event type of thing. 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Battlebots:
Had a really bad start to the season, but in the past few weeks it significantly picked up, so much that I've decided to move it to a renewal prediction. (Update 9/16) I have decided after feedback from readers, and common sense, it does appear Battlebots leans a bit towards cancellation. It's not the cheapest, and it did quite bad for several weeks.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boston EMS:
Performed VERY well for a not promoted, Saturday Reality Show. Better than last season. It is very cheap too, so that always helps. It will be back.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Home Free:
Did just awful this summer, don't count on seeing it again.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Maya & Marty:
Maya & Marty never really flopped in the ratings, but it did not light up the charts. If it were not for the fact that its A list guest stars cost a lot of $$$, then it would most likely be back. But unfortunately, the guests are very expensive, and the ratings it pulled were not high enough for it to be able to get a second season. Similar to last season's Best Time Ever With Neil Patrick Harris.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Greatest Hits:
Sorry Greatest Hits, your ratings were not great, at all. GH will remain as a limited event.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
500 Questions:
I've been putting off predicting this all summer, but finally, I've decided to go with a Cancellation prediction. ABC seems to be in the trigger happy mode lately, and the ratings for 500 Questions were not good. Despite being a reality show, and all that comes with that, I don't think we will see another round of questions.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So You Think You Can Dance?:
Did not do too hot this summer, by a long shot. If it were not for it being a really long running show, I'd predict it as a cancellation. But, it being so old, should give it the benefit of getting renewed for a Final Season (similar to American Idol). Despite all that, the ratings weren't flat out horrible.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge: 
If Spartan was going to be renewed, it would have already, in my opinion. The signs are not good for the show. It never really did too well, and I've heard it is not all so cheap. Sadly, I do not think we will see another season of the show.


The long summer has finally come to an end. It has been fun. Thank you everyone for reading these posts every week! It has also been a great Summer, but everything must end. Please tune in to the Regular Season Reality Shows Renew/Cancel that will be taking over the summer watch's time slot in two weeks on September 29th! And, I'm happy to announce that the summer Reality Shows Renew/Cancel watch has been RENEWED for a second season! I will virtually see you all again in 37 weeks!

And for one last time (until the regular season watch comes on) let me know what you think of my predictions in the comments below!
