RENEWAL ALERT: Taken
There was only one renewal today among the five networks and it belonged to NBC's Taken, which was a bit of a surprise renewal though it seemed to be gaining ground in recent days. It will have a new showrunner and my prediction is it will be held until Summer 2018. Taken premiered to a 1.6 demo behind the premiere of The Voice's latest edition but it hovered around a 0.8-0.9 demo fro much of its run and didn't seem to be a huge DVR player. It is a cheap option for NBC so economics probably played a factor.
