Reality Shows Renew/Cancel Watch: '15-'16 FINAL EDITION: UPDATED 1/2/17




2015-16 Renew/Cancel Watch - Reality Shows - Week 32 - Updated 1/2/17

Well tomorrow will be the start of a wild week of renewals, cancellations, and pickups. Stay tuned to this page, and The TV Ratings Guide to find out everything as it comes in.
UPDATE 7/29: Two months after the final watch was posted, another show's fate has finally come. American Grit has been renewed. That's my first miss. Wow. Stay tuned through the next few weeks, as more shows will probably be renewed or cancelled, as it is Summer TCA Tour time.
UPDATE 11/25: Four months later, the regular season is well underway, and still no news about several series. Midseason schedules are coming out, and we can tell what shows have the room to return, and which don't. And if you factor in the ratings these shows got, you can even more so tell, they won't be returning. So I've decided to call a few of the remaining series. Yes, they may be renewed, but that's a small chance, if you ask me. I will update this if any news is to come out.
UPDATE 1/1/17: 
Per the Futon Critic - "a show on hiatus for 12-14 months - without any news about its future - is assumed to be canceled"

  • Bachelor Live was not scheduled to air after The Bachelor/or at all this season = de facto canceled. 
  • My Diet is Better Than Yours was not scheduled to air in its season 1 slot = de facto canceled. 
  • Strong did not make NBC's mid-season schedule = de facto canceled.
Well, I hope this is the end of these shows, and I can (finally) close the book on the 2015-2016 season. My final tally ends up being 20-1-2.

Changes from Last Week/Further Elaboration (5/6):
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
American Grit has been predicted as a cancellation. It has been fractional for nearly its entire run, and is far away from syndication. I really do see FOX just cutting the show, and trying out new shows next season, instead of having a timeslot being wasted on a show receiving 0.7s. If you look below, you will see the results from last week's poll.

Bachelor Live  has been predicted as a cancellation. It's not like the show was a huge hit, as it was fractional a good bit of times. Also, I feel like if it was going to be renewed, then it would have been in March. I think ABC will decide to use The Bachelor lead in for something better, or plug a short final season of Castle or Nashville there. Maybe ABC will do a Bachelor live show every now and then, but I don't think the show will continue, but I would not be surprised if it did. If you look below, you will see the results from last week's poll.

Beyond The Tank has been predicted as a renewal. Now I am not very faithful in this prediction, as it really could go either way. It did bad in the unpromoted Tuesday timeslot, but I could see it doing fine in its two Friday airings along with Shark Tank. The thing is by the time it airs there, ABC will most likely have made up their mind. I know it is very cheap, but how low will ABC allow a show to go? This show honestly could go either way, but since I am trying to get rid of the tossups, I pushed it to a renewal.
UPDATED PREDICTION: I have moved the show to a cancellation prediction. I thought it would perform well on Friday, but it only scored .1 higher, a 0.6. I don't think ABC will renew this show, as it is just doing really bad in every slot. Perhaps it was because ABC scheduled it really bad, but I just don't think it will come back. As I said before, this show honestly could go either way...

Well, thanks for tuning in to this watch every week! It has been a great season, and I can't wait for next year, as I will be returning next season. In the meantime, look for the watch returning this Summer on June 2, for Summer Predictions. Also, stay tuned for updates when the final renewals and cancellations come!
