ABC: Betrayal and Once Upon A Time In Wonderland certain cancellations

By on October 13, 2013

Other ABC Renewal and Cancellation news:

With its great premiere numbers, it was no surprise that Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. got picked up for a full season. However, it has been dropping ever since, so we will have to wait and see whether it will keep doing good and get renewed for a second season.

Betrayal dropped to even lower numbers and is now certain to be cancelled, following the unfortunate fate of Lucky 7. With the current ratings, Nashville will not make it past its current second season. Once Upon a Time In Wonderland premiered as ABC’s third lowest rating drama, and almost all shows drop in their second episodes. Therefore, it’s already a Certain Cancellation after its premiere.

Castle and Revenge have ratings just below the average for ABC dramas. If ABC had to choose between the two, Revenge would be renewed for a fourth season, taking it over the syndication threshold. Castle is already in its sixth season, so more expensive, but remains a Toss Up for now.

Super Fun Night did very good in its premiere, but dropped so much in its second episode that it won’t be upgraded until it stabilizes. The Goldbergs, Back in the Game and The Middle are all at the same level, so there is no telling yet which of them will survive and which won’t.

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

  • Terry

    I just watched the 3rd or 4th Betrayal. It will be the last, deleting it from my DVR. I always give a show a chance, but it should have picked up to where you actually care about the character/s by this point. I simply don’t.

  • The Schoolmarm

    Several of us watch “Nashville” with rapt attention. Please don’t cancell this show. The acting is really good, and the music is great…the story line draws you into the program.

  • Michelle

    Betrayal is a great show! Deserves a second season!

    I believe Nashville can pull a rabbit out of this, I am not sure with Once upon a time in wonderland, however anything is possible, as for the other shows such as the neighbors, and trophy wife. Let them go. its not worth it.
