ABC Renew/Cancel - December 1: American Housewife is Certain to be Renewed

It's been a couple weeks since the last ABC renew/cancel, since less shows than usual have aired over the last two weeks, with The Good Doctor actually being the network's only scripted show to air both weeks. Next week, Agents of SHIELD will get its first prediction. Until then, here are my predictions.


Format for predictions:
Show title (average 18-49 rating, season low-high)

Certain to be Canceled

Likely to be Canceled
Inhumans (0.6, 0.4-0.9)
The Mayor (0.8, 0.7-1.2)

Toss-Up
Kevin Probably Saves the World (0.8, 0.6-1.0)

Likely to be Renewed
Designated Survivor (0.8, 0.7-1.1)
Fresh Off the Boat (1.1, 0.9-1.4)
Once Upon a Time (0.6, 0.5-0.7)
Speechless (1.2, 1.0-1.4)

Certain to be Renewed
American Housewife (1.3, 1.0-1.6)
Black-ish (1.2, 1.0-1.5)
The Good Doctor (1.9, 1.7-2.2)
Grey's Anatomy (2.0, 1.8-2.3)
How to Get Away with Murder (0.9, 0.9-1.1)

Fate Determined
The Goldbergs (RENEWED)
The Middle (FINAL SEASON)
Modern Family (RENEWED)
Scandal (FINAL SEASON)
Ten Days in the Valley (DE-FACTO CANCELED)


American Housewife: Though it hit a random and surprising low this week, American Housewife is still certain to be renewed. After Black-ish, it's the network's longest-running comedy that they own, and it is ABC's strongest owned comedy out of all three of them. If it continues to perform around the strength of its latest episode, it will still be certain to be renewed, though likely not the strongest ABC-produced comedy anymore.

Designated Survivor: The drama returned after a week off down from its previous episode. While 0.7s are certainly not what ABC was hoping for here, they are likely not bad enough for ABC to cancel the show, especially with the deal that the show has with Netflix internationally and the new deal with Hulu in the United States.
