Beyond: You may be questioning why I am predicting the fate of a show that hasn't premiered yet. Here's a shocking reveal - Beyond has been airing for two weeks already. *gasp* , I know. 

The sci-fi drama returned last week to really awful numbers (0.10/0.05), and then grew to a 0.07 this week. I feel like I shouldn't need to explain why this is dead, but here goes. So basically, those numbers are terrible and can't even be  saved on Freeform. As to why it's flopping, there are a few reasons. It moved days and got a new timeslot, which always hurts. It also received bare minimum promotion from Freeform (I guess they realized it didn't fit their brand), causing nobody to realize it was back on (because these aren't non-hit numbers, these are like massive flop/rerun numbers) Another problem that hurt Beyond's ratings was the fact that it had a binge setup last season. Freeform aired the first two episodes live and then put the entire season on various streaming sites, where it reportedly was watched by some five million people  in its first couple of weeks. All these people who watched Beyond through streaming weren't going to just magically switch to watching the show live on a hardly viewed cable channel. It doesn't work that way. Freeform should've moved the show away from live airings and kept it all digital.

The only tiny hope can be given is that if it really did do so well on streaming platforms last season, there's a possibility it will do well on those platforms this week as well, and could be good enough to move to a digital show only, but take this with a grain of salt.

Good Behavior:

The Bad Points:

  • Ended almost two months ago. TNT does not hesitate on  their renewals, so this silence is speaking volumes. With the radio silence from TNT, I imagine they are just not caring enough to cancel it quickly, like happens with most cable shows that end up getting canceled.


The Good Points:

  • Right after the finale, TNT sent out a survey through social media asking fans their opinions on the season, and the show's future plots. So this could mean TNT is trying to find a new creative team for the show. 
  • Good Behavior's social media accounts are still active.
  • The creative team and cast do not know the fate of the show yet (but this could also be a bad thing)
With  all this being said, I'm downgrading the Michelle Dockery gem to leans cancellation.
