CBS: Hostages, Mom and We Are Men likely to be cancelled

By on October 6, 2013

Other CBS Renewal and Cancellation news:



Person Of Interest just started its third season, and if the show would get a fourth season it would be eligible for a syndication deal. Since CBS would love to make this deal since it makes them more money, chances are the series will be renewed. Especially since the ratings are currently at average. Therefore, Person Of Interest will become a Certain Renewal. NCIS is getting extremely high ratings and therefore will also become a Certain Renewal.

The only newcomer in the drama section on CBS so far is Hostages. Although TV Watch U.S. had high hopes for this series it’s not coming through. Currently, the ratings are quite low. Therefore, Hostages is likely to be cancelled.

While How I Met Your Mother just started its final season, 2 Broke Girls started its third season. This once again means a syndication deal is likely going to happen. Although the series got a series low this week it’s still a Likely Renewal. The Big Bang Theory is upgraded to a Certain Renewal as its ratings have been through the roof.

Comedy rookies We Are Men and Mom are both doing quite bad in the ratings. Mom is likely to be cancelled while We Are Men is doing even worse and is certain to be cancelled. The Crazy Ones had a really good premiere but then dropped a whole point. This is a big drop, but if the ratings remain steady from now on this series might stand a chance. The Millers also premiered with a decent rating. However, as usual, a drop is suspected after the premiere. This series will remain a Toss Up for now.

This week’s TV Watch U.S. predictions for the other networks:

  • Melissa

    I’m really enjoying Hostages; although I can’t see how it can stay a long running series. I love The Blacklist, so usually that wins out and I DVR Hostages.

  • ToXiX

    So this site is just a rip off of TvByTheNumbers? Cool.

    • Daniel Redford

      I can see why, at first glance, you would think that. However, the similarities of course arise because TV Watch U.S. and TvByTheNumbers are talking about the same thing: TV Shows. After all, there are only so many ways to visually present TV Ratings and predictions for renewals and cancellations.

      However, TV Watch U.S. has a lot more to offer. We have extensive listings of all current and upcoming TV shows, all with their very own page where you find lots of info and recent posts about the shows. You can access the listings and show pages through the ‘New and Upcoming’, ‘TV Shows by Network’, and ‘TV Shows by Genre’ tabs in the menu.

      We write previews and reviews about every new show that premieres and gather the latest TV News in organised digest posts. We provide graphs for all broadcast networks representing the ratings for each show, giving easy insight into their relative performance and therefore, their chances for a renewal.

      And every day, navigating around the site, we have new and exciting ideas of features we can add. But we also have day jobs (which consume way too much of our time!) so it takes a while to develop and roll out these new features.

      TvByTheNumbers is a great site and the writers there are very good at what they do. TV Watch U.S. could never replace that site, nor are we trying to. We’re just here to offer our take on TV.
