Cancellation Buzz: Which TV Shows Are Still in Danger?

Batten down the hatches, y’all. This week may be a rough one for fans of shows that are on the renewal bubble. Just a week ahead of the broadcast networks’ upfront presentations, TV execs are (finally) announcing the fates of their series. Just today, The CW officially axed No Tomorrow and Frequency . Expect more as the week progresses. Here’s a look at the broadcast network series that are most at risk: ● Very doubtful: Conviction , ABC - In November, the network announced that it would not increase the drama's episode order beyond the initial 13. Notorious , ABC - The show's episode order was reduced from 13 to 10 way back in October. The Odd Couple , CBS - For the third consecutive season, CBS decided not to order more than the initially requested 13 episodes. Training Day , CBS - Even before Bill Paxton's death, this show was an unlikely renewal. Pure Genius , CBS - The network in November decided not to order additional episodes of the medical drama. Scream Queens , FOX - He may be the king of FX, but Ryan Murphy's horror-comedy seems destined for FOX's morgue. Powerless , NBC - Officially pulled from the schedule, it's all but canceled. ● Outlook not so good: The Catch , ABC - With Still Star-Crossed finally about to premiere, execs may be ready to say no to Shonda Rhimes. American Crime , ABC - It's earned the network a few Emmys, but it’s also ABC's worst-rated show. Imaginary Mary , ABC - Jenna Elfman may want to imagine this never happened. The Toy Box , ABC - Kids are supposed to make TV shows cuter, right? Quantico , ABC - Ratings have been dropping pretty consistently this season. Secrets and Lies , ABC - ABC execs admitted in January that this was among the "less likely" series to return. The Real O’Neals , ABC - A quality show that fits right in among ABC's family sitcoms, but viewers just aren't tuning in. Hunted , CBS - A pretty buzzless show, ratings plummeted by season's end. Ransom , CBS - Likely to be a last-minute decision for the network. Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders , CBS - Among the worst-reviewed shows of 2016 and a consistent under-performer. Code Black , CBS - See show title. APB , FOX - The show ticked up a bit in its season finale, but it's probably not enough. The Exorcist , FOX - Many critics came around on the show as it progressed, but the ratings never did. Rosewood , FOX - After a pretty serious sophomore slump, the network shifted the show to Friday, where it's also floundered. Sleepy Hollow , FOX - A shock renewal last season, it's time is probably up. Making History , FOX - A serious long shot, despite fairly solid reviews. The Blacklist: Redemption , NBC - The original series is in decent shape, but this one was DOA. Blindspot , NBC - Ever since the second half of Season 1, this has been an very shaky ground. First Dates , NBC - Outside of her talk show, (executive producer) Ellen DeGeneres actually has a pretty bad track record. ● Cannot predict now: Dr. Ken , ABC - About as much of a tossup as there is for ABC. Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. , ABC - This one could go either way. Once Upon a Time , ABC - Ratings are at an all-time low and Jennifer Morrison has decided to leave at the end of this season. Elementary , CBS - Always on the bubble, creator Rob Doherty has said he's optimistic. 2 Broke Girls , CBS - Kind of a surprise not to have been part of the network's big renewal earlier this spring. The Great Indoors , CBS - The ratings may be slightly inflated because of its usual lead-in, The Big Bang Theory , but it’s still odd that this show's fate is up in the air. Son of Zorn , FOX - A creative premise, but this animated series never really took off. Still, it has a shot. Last Man on Earth , FOX - Will Forte recently got real, tweeting that the show is "on a serious bubble." Timeless , NBC - This got off to a good start following The Voice in the fall, but lost steam without the strong lead-in. Trial & Error , NBC - A clever show with talented performers, this comedy is not making much noise.
