ABC Sunday Fun and Games: 


A few thoughts. Last season ABC was forced to renew low-rated (flops?) Quantico, Agents of SHEILD, and Once Upon a Time. All of these shows were in-season, expensive, abysmally rated, and scripted, yet somehow they got renewed. Recently, ABC renewed low-rated Friday reality smash The Toy Box. What's The Toy Box you ask? It's ok if you didn't know, not many people do know what it is. It was basically a kids-Shark Tank that hoovered around a 0.6 for its run, which is not a good rating. But, I guess the fact that it was a cheap-reality show saved it. My point, if ABC had to renew expensive scripted shows in the regular season, and even a low-rated reality show got renewed due to its cheapness, then ABC's summer Sunday Fun & Games will no doubt be back as they are doing much better  than any of the previously mentioned shows. The game shows will definitely continue to rate higher than renewed Quantico, and The Toy Box, so these shows have nothing to worry about.


FOX Reality:


Dary is probably jumping for joy over at Fox headquarters this summer. Almost all  of the network's premiered reality shows have proven to be successes. Beat Shazam has not gone fractional, MasterChef was only fractional once, The F Word and Love Connection are at the higher end of the fractionals, Superhuman has done decent. All of these are cheap reality shows that could be doing a tick or so worse, and still get renewed due to their cheapness and being on FOX. The only show you need to worry about as of now is American Grit. A year ago, this smash-critical darling was renewed for a second season after a low rated first season. Grit premiered last week to a strong 0.4. All I will say is FOX didn't go with my cancel prediction last year, but they will this year.
