Other recent Renewals and Cancellations on ABC:
- ABC Recap: Quantico Renewed; Last Man Standing Cancelled (May 21st)
- Quantico Renewed for Short Season 3 (May 16th)
Yesterday, after just two extremely low-rated episodes, ABC cancelled . Interestingly, it seemed like the Alphabet network already saw it coming, since it changed the official billing of the show from limited series (with short but potentially many seasons) to miniseries (just one season).
As ABC’s lowest rating Tuesday premiere ever, with ratings that don’t even reach the magical 1.0, doesn’t stand a chance. Never mind that we just have one data point to work with for this one, because we don’t really need to see any more: is not going to make it. Out of grace for the fans and everyone involved with the show, will drop to a Likely Cancellation this week.
, on the other hand, managed to pick up to the highest ratings since its October 6 episode. Especially pending the show’s move to the 10/9c timeslot starting March 9th, it won’t hurt to have the lead-in of The Bachelor specials this month. Regardless, syndication money is a powerful force to get a show renewed through a fourth season. Even the ratings disaster that was called got a (short) fourth season. is thus a Certain Renewal.
