Reality Shows Renew/Cancel - Winter Update

Reality Shows Renew/Cancel: Winter Update Predictions






The Reality Renew/Cancel is back for its second prediction post! It's taken a while because reality is just not that needed to predict a lot, since the slate is doing so well this year. I know you were all eagerly waiting to find out that The Voice is going to be renewed (SHOCK).

Child Support: Hasn't been a game changer in its Friday filler timeslot, but that doesn't mean it's not doing respectable. The argument I've made twenty times before on my renew/cancel posts goes again here, it's reality so it's going to be cheaper than a scripted show to produce, which works in its favor. Its timeslot is also not flattering, so to self start on Fridays and score in the high fractionals is more than ok. ABC should also be happy its doing better than expensive OUAT, in worst circumstances, it' should be coming back.

Better Late Than Never: While this reality filler could be doing better, it's not doing terrible. It hasn't lit up our ratings tables this season, but its not doing bad. Especially considering NBC has now started renewing the majority of its lineup in the last year. But that's where the bad part comes, NBC will likely have a jam-packed schedule next year of returning shows, as well as new shows, so there simply may not be enough room for an average performer like this one, especially a reality show that's likely a little more expensive. The semi-hit, First Dates, was actually canceled last year despite good ratings for the crowded schedule reasons. However, the counter argument is that it could take a season off or air over the summer, as this year's season didn't premiere until over a year after the first  season ended - it could be a sporadic show.
