The Night Shift: This medical drama has seen a slow uptick from that awful 0.6 it started the season with. It's most recent episode received a 0.8, which is fine for Summer. That isn't a huge number, and it makes it the lowest-rated of NBC's Thursday lineup, but it's fine. It's also owned by Sony, which is almost as beneficial as being a network-owned show. Sony's been known to fight for their shows, and they recently got Timeless renewed, despite it hitting the same 0.6 the Night Shift got. Night Shift is also got a panel at NBC's TCA, so NBC seems to care about it. For all of these reasons, the Night Shift now LEANS RENEWAL.

Hooten & the Lady: This adventure show won't be returning to the CW, President Mark Pedowitz announced recently. This decision was made by its original UK network, but it won't be continuing on the CW either, so it still counts as being CANCELED.
