After a flurry of cancellations in the fall, it’s been a while since we checked in on the ratings for network television. Granted, without Parks and Recreation or Community perpetually being on the bubble, it’s more difficult to work up much interest. In fact, for this year’s sure-to-be-cancelled slate, I’m not that bummed about any of them, and in the iffy category, I’d only be crushed if one were cancelled.
At this point, ABC’s family sitcoms, Fox’s live-action sitcoms, and The Good Wife are the only network shows I am strongly invested in (and kind of Empire, too), and most of those seems safe.
Let’s take a quick look (via TVByTheNumbers)
Almost Sure To Be Cancelled
Battle Creek (ouch)
Allegiance (never heard of it)
Marry Me (bummed, but not that bummed)
About a Boy (stopped caring)
State of Affairs (poor Heigl)
Mysteries of Laura
Good Wife (cancel it and DIE)
Everything else has either been cancelled (Mulaney) or looking pretty solid for renewal, including all of ABC’s family sitcoms (even Fresh Off the Boat, Agents of SHIELD, Nashville, The Odd Couple, Mindy, New Girl, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Last Man on Earth (yay!), and The Night Shift.
Note, also, that all of The CW’s shows have been renewed except for Hart of Dixie.
