Summer


Battle of the Network Stars: 

  • The revival premiered to a low start last week, earning a 1.0 demo. While this is not a good rating, for a cheap summer reality show, it could have easily been renewed. However, the game show fell to a 0.7 this week, which is putting the show in dangerous waters. I'm still going to start the show at 'Leans Cancellation'. While it is a cheap reality show airing in the summer, ratings are bound to fall more, and lower, and a 0.7 is barely justifiable for a renewal as is. ABC does fine with their summer game shows, finding hits in Sunday, and a few other shows sprinkled around their schedule. They simply do not need this one, it can be let go. It will also become (more of) a challenge to find stars to compete in the show year after year.
Boy Band:

  • Oh, ABC. ABC's newest attempt at a singing competition show has failed (shocker). Boy Band already premiered dead at a 0.7, but the crash to a 0.5 in its second week sealed its fate. As I mentioned above, ABC does not need shows with the low ratings that Boy Band is getting. They are not struggling in reality. One and done.
