Cable Renew/Cancel - Freeform, TNT, & Syfy: Predictions for 'Famous in Love', 'The Bold Type' & More

Cable Renew/Cancel - Freeform, TNT, & Syfy: Summer Predictions 1

Young & Hungry

Famous in Love


The Bold Type

Famous in Love: The Bella Thorne-led drama will likely be back for another ten episodes in the new year. Premiering to a modest rating back in April, the Hollywood drama could have performed decently in the live ratings and easily scored a second season renewal. However, Freeform thought it would be a fantastic idea to make the series available on Hulu, iTunes, VOD, everywhere, which tanked the live ratings. However, Beyond also suffered the same scheduling, and was renewed for another season. Freeform boasted a few weeks after the premiere that the soap did quite well across all platforms, so that combined with it reminds me of Beyond's situation, I. Marlene King being attached, Bella Thorne, and the dire state of Freeflop makes me think we'll likely see season two of the drama.

The Bold Type: Aired a sneak peak last week. I know you're probably like, "wait, what? I didn't even know what The Bold Type was! Much less that it aired a sneak peek!", don't worry, not many people did. The preview was watched by an abysmal 240k people, and scored a lowest of low 0.1 in the 18-49 demo. Sure, you could argue that it was a hardly promoted-sneak peak, and it was, but that's not going to justify the show all of the sudden becoming a hit in time for its official premiere next month. Sure, it'll possibly catch a few more eyeballs, but its not going to do well enough to get renewed, the rating and buzz thus far is just too bad. One and done.


Animal Kingdom

Premieres July

Claws: TNT has found another breakout summer hit. The network's first ever dramedy has proven to be a steady success, scoring a solid 0.4 for its premiere, growing for its second episode, and only falling back to a 0.4 last episode against heavy competition. The ratings are there, so, the ex-Scream Queens star led series will return for a second season.

Dark Matter

Blood Drive

Wynonna Earp

Blood Drive: The quirky drama is still on a slippery ratings slope. It's done okay for Syfy summer, but nothing to brag about by any means. If it can hold some ground for a few more airings, the cheapness will likely save it, but the ratings need to remain where they are.
