Take Two: Shocking nobody, Take Two premiered with abysmal ratings this Thursday. ABC's night was filled with low ratings, but Take Two still doesn't have an excuse for its performance. A case could be made if it managed to hold onto the 0.7 for its lead-in Match Game, but it couldn't even do that. A 0.5 is just way too low to even put the show in contention for a renewal, and it has nothing going for it. It's (already) a CERTAIN CANCELLATION.

Marlon: Marlon is underperforming, there's not a question about that. However, its lead-in, Little Big Shots, isn't doing much better. That doesn't give Marlon, which had the huge AGT lead-in in season one, an excuse, but at least it's retaining LBS pretty well. Also boding well for it is that it held at that 0.6 that it received for last week's second episode, showing that it does have somewhat of an audience. I still think it's done, but it didn't hurt its chances at all this week, so it only LEANS CANCELLATION.

Reverie: Another week, another (series) low result. At this point, it's not a question of whether it's a CERTAIN CANCELLATION or not, it's a matter of whether it'll be moved to Saturdays or not.

Nobodies Canceled After Two Seasons

Nobodies has been canceled after two seasons. This isn't a very surprising decision, because "nobody" was watching it. With just a 0.076 average, the show was TV Land's lowest-rated current series, despite a 14% year-to-year increase in ratings. The show was renewed for its second season before it even premiered, which was probably the only reason it made it this far. Melissa McCarthy and her husband Ben Falcone were executive producers and recurring cast members on the series, which starred three comedians trying to make names for themselves in the entertainment business. Rachel Ramras, Larry Dorf, and Hugh Davidson created the series and starred as fictionalized versions of themselves in it. This was a correct prediction for The TV Ratings Guide, and below are the ratings for season two.

The Joker's Wild and Drop the Mic: Since the last edition of this renew/cancel, the ratings for both Joker's Wild and Drop the Mic have improved, with both at 0.3s for their latest two episodes. Both aired their finales this Sunday, and while their season-to-season holds could have been better, they still do just fine. Both have been upgraded to CERTAIN RENEWAL status.

Rachel Dratch's Late Night Snack: Ratings for this sketch comedy series haven't gotten any prettier since we last checked in on it, ticking down to a 0.06 average. That is... not great. It makes it one of TruTV's lowest-rated shows. The show does have a garbage timeslot, but other TruTV shows have aired just as late and they've done better than this. It was weak in season one, but with even lower ratings, I don't see it getting another reprieve. It's now downgraded to a LIKELY CANCELLATION.

Detroiters: The Michigan-set sitcom that stars Veep's Sam Richardson and SNL alum Tim Robinson returned this week for its second season, and things didn't go well. Like, at all. With a 0.13 for the premiere and a 0.10 for its second episode, the show is down about 43%. Shows have had bigger declines before and still survived, but it's not like Detroiters had very high ratings to begin with, so a 43% decline puts it in a rough position. Sure, it can still grow throughout the season, but it's hard to envision it growing enough to make its year-to-year hold look acceptable. It starts as a LIKELY CANCELLATION.

Idiotsitter: This isn't canceled yet?
