Past April scorecards: 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011
Quantico - Renewed.
Dr. Ken - This should definitely get a renewal over pretty much anything else from ABC's troubled class of freshmen. It has been the best pair with Last Man Standing yet. 85%
Bachelor Live - I definitely see this coming back for a limited run next winter after The Bachelor. 80%
The Real O'Neals - I feel like this show's chances are going up with each week that it stays at a 1.0 demo and pairs up well with Fresh Off the Boat. Still, ABC has a lot of comedy already renewed and they may just opt for new shows especially with a new regime. 50%
The Great Holiday Baking Show - Could definitely be winter filler or they might do something else. It's always hard to predict shows like this. 50%
The Catch - Seems very unlikely to return after a disappointing debut followed by a drop even when its lead-in went up. Its back to the drawing board for what to do when How to Get Away with Murder ends its season. 20%
The Family - A huge disappointment that is airing on the string on Sundays. 10%
The Muppets - This show barely had a chance when the old regime was in charge. No chance now. 5%
My Diet is Better Than Yours - Fillers are hard to predict but this one is not coming back. 3%
Blood & Oil - Unofficially cancelled. 1%
Wicked City/Of Kings and Prophets - Officially cancelled after airing a combined 5 weeks in the Tuesday 10pm slot.
Supergirl - CBS did not renew any freshmen with its big wave of renewals earlier this month but this one is a slam dunk for a renewal. 90%
Life in Pieces - Also seems like a slam dunk renewal unless CBS suddenly wants to get out of the single cam game, which I don't see happening. 85%
Limitless - It had a little rally with its most recent episode which would help its chance. It also may have built up enough good will early on to get a pickup but I'm still not convinced it deserves it. 65%
Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders - Could go either way. Criminal Minds is a CBS brand but they didn't hesitate cancelling Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior a few years ago. The next couple weeks are probably key here. 55%
Code Black - This will look better by comparison if Beyond Borders continues to drop and Les Moonves implied that 5 freshman may come back. In that scenario, this would be the fifth show. But I still think it's more likely cancelled than renewed. 35%
Rush Hour - With its late premiere being disappointing and plenty of other freshmen shows doing better, this doesn't stand a chance. 10%
Angel From Hell - Cancelled.
Blindspot/Chicago Med/Superstore/Shades of Blue/Little Big Shots - Renewed.
Heartbeat - I'm pretty sure all the shows that are going to get renewed on NBC have already been renewed but I guess Heartbeat has an outside chance if it can keep holding steady. 25%
Crowded - NBC did find a sitcom success in Superstore and they are more committed to The Carmichael Show than this one if they want to renew an underachiever. 15%
Telenovela - If this was going to get renewed, it would already have been renewed. 10%
You, Me, and the Apocalypse - No chance for this to get another go-round. 5%
Truth Be Told/The Player - Unofficially cancelled. 1%
Heroes: Reborn/Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris - Officially cancelled.
Scream Queens - Renewed.
The X-Files - As everyone has said, this will come back unless details can't be ironed out with the showrunner and stars. I think they'll find a way to do it. 90%
Lucifer - I think this show has a very good chance of renewal because it has been a great fit first with The X-Files and then with Gotham. I wouldn't be surprised to see a renewal before the end of the month. 85%
Grandfathered - It's not doing well but any stretch of the imagination but it's about on par with Brooklyn Nine-Nine and it's still doing better than The Grinder. Like all year, it's a toss-up. 50%
Rosewood - Despite its recent rise with Empire, this has been exposed as a fraud after how it did without its powerful lead-out for most of March. 30%
Minority Report - Unofficially cancelled.
