NBC got good news on Monday night as airing the Emmys in August didn't prove to be a negative for the show. While it was down from last year, it still delivered the second best numbers since 2006. It looks like the online buzz for the show was able to get enough viewers to tune in on an unlikely night to air an awards show. Elsewhere on ABC, Bachelor in Paradise was down three tenths in viewers and even in the demo while Mistresses was down two tenths in viewers and up a tenth in the demo. On CBS, Under the Dome was down seven tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo for a series low. Finally on FOX, Masterchef was down three tenths in viewers and even in the demo while Hotel Hell was down two tenths in viewers and up a tenth in the demo.

CANCELLATION ALERT: Working the Engels

NBC has had a lot of success this summer as evidenced by renewals for The Night Shift, Undateable, and Welcome to Sweden. However, Canadian sitcom Working the Engels will not join that list as it has been cancelled and will be pulled from the schedule immediately. The show was the weaker of the two late summer sitcom entries and its lead-in Welcome to Sweden will get double pumped for the next couple weeks.

CANCELLATION ALERT: Black Box

In an unsurprising move, ABC has cancelled Black Box after one season and two weeks after its season finale. The show was originally slated for summer but was pushed into early service and an April premiere after Scandal cut its season short due to Kerry Washington's pregnancy. It premiered to a number that was about half of Scandal's audience and went down from there.

RENEWAL ALERT: Welcome to Sweden

The NBC summer renewals just keep coming. Despite low ratings, NBC has renewed Welcome to Sweden for a second season. It had already been renewed in Sweden and though it has had low numbers, they have been steady numbers and some critical attention. Welcome to Sweden joins The Night Shift and Undateable as surprise summer renewals from the Peacock network, which is following a solid regular season with stronger than usual summer offerings.

On Monday night, ABC premiered the new Bachelor in Paradise, which is replacing Bachelor Pad as ABC's late summer entry. It got off to an OK, but not great start. At 10pm, Mistresses was two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo despite a much lower lead-in. Over on CBS, Under the Dome was up two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo as this show seems to be stabilizing after a couple drops early on this season. On NBC, Running Wild with Bear Grylls was down four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo from last week's series premiere. At 9pm, American Ninja Warrior was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. Finally on FOX, Masterchef was down four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo while Hotel Hell was down two tenths in viewers and the demo.

On Thursday night, ABC premiered new reality show The Quest to dismal numbers, worse than recent occupant Black Box. Even for a summer show, this is pretty DOA. At 9pm, Rookie Blue wasn't negatively affected as it was down six tenths in viewers but up a tenth in the demo from its last airing. NY Med was up four tenths in viewers and even in the demo. This show has quietly been a decent performer this summer. As usual, CBS' Big Brother topped the night as it was down two tenths in viewers and up a tenth in the demo. On NBC, Welcome to Sweden was down four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo, Working the Engels was down three tenths in viewers and even in the demo, and Last Comic Standing was dead even with last week. Finally on FOX, Gang Related was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo.

RENEWAL ALERT: Undateable

Another little summer show that could has gotten renewed by NBC this summer as Undateable secured a second season. Like The Night Shift, Undateable seemed to be a summer dump by NBC but then it surprised everyone by getting a 1.3 demo for its double episode premiere. That might not sound like much but it had minimal promotion and was dumped on Thursday night in late May. The ratings didn't hold up that well but it did better than current occupants Welcome to Sweden and Working the Engels. It also shows that NBC is committed to multi-camera comedies despite not picking up many at upfronts.
