Well, I’m back with my next round of cancellation predictions before the main season starts. As usual, these are an overpredition containing a whole bunch of stuff that I know full well will not be cancelled. But any possible show that I think could be cancelled this upcoming season will be included in these new predictions of mine. As usual, I won’t know the full schedule in advance so you can just count anything that isn’t included as wrong (should it be cancelled) even though I couldn’t have known about it in advance anyways. I won’t be including most summer shows unless something I mention ends up being delayed all the way until the summer. Well, let’s get started next, shall we?
Scandal- This one is a freebie for me as they already announced that this upcoming season would be the end. Otherwise, I might not have included it in this post. Those things aren’t often, but they are nice whenever I do this post.
Ten Days in the Valley- What Sunday shows on ABC have done well in the ratings besides America’s Funniest Home Videos (apparently) and Once Upon a Time? That is why I think that this will be another in a long line of failures on Sunday nights.
The Good Doctor- I hope that this show lasts, but once again, I can’t ignore the fact that most shows do terribly at this timeslot which is weird since the show before it still doing well in the ratings. I hope that I like this show, but we’ll see in the end if it really is good or not.
The Bachelor- Normally, I wouldn’t ever include a show like this in my predictions even if I’ll never understand the appeal of it, but the ongoing scandal involving Bachelor in Paradise makes me think that it could have repercussions on the rest of the franchise and this could end as a result.
The Bachelorette- This is here for pretty much the same reason that the previous show is. I don’t know why some shows like Big Brother would thrive off of some controversy, but there is probably no way that a scandal like the one affecting Bachelor in Paradise could end well for the show involved.
The Gospel of Evan- Sometimes a show is on my cancelled predictions list for almost no good reason other than a gut feeling that something bad might happen to it. Based off of the name, it sounds like it could be another in a long line of shows that mock religion, although you’d think that after show after show does this and fails that Hollywood would learn to stop.
The Mayor- This one is on here mostly due to its bad timeslot. Well, it might not be that bad a timeslot in the long term, but I just don’t see it lasting. Maybe it will or maybe it won’t. But I don’t have any long term faith in it right now.
Once Upon a Time- They will be changing too much of this show in the future probably leaving us with a completely different show or what is practically a new version of what they have already done. While I hope that this upcoming season is good, I just don’t think that many people will watch it. Plus, one should always be afraid when a long running show moves to Fridays.
Inhumans- First off, Friday nights are never that good for shows, even if this is more the type of show to thrive off of the timeslot in the first place. Secondly, these shows aren’t highly rated and this could wind up failing too because of issues like that.
The Bachelor Winter Games- Have you noticed how lately most spin-offs fail? If you haven’t noticed this, then that is one of the reasons why I’m putting it here. Another reason why it is here is because certain shows in this franchise like Bachelor Live and Bachelor Pad have failed and this could be yet another failure of the franchise. The most important reason is that the scandal affecting Bachelor in Paradise could taint and cancel the whole franchise.
Dancing with the Stars Junior- Why are there so many pushes to do a younger version of reality shows that are successful with kids? I just don’t get it. While some might work and last, I don’t know why this one would or why anyone would care.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.- It probably shouldn’t have been renewed for this new season in the first place. It is also getting a shorter season and one should always be worried when a long running show (well, not too long, in this case, but long enough) gets downgraded to midseason. Unless a ton of people start watching for the first time, then I just don’t see this as lasting long in the future.
Untitled Grey’s Anatomy Spin-off- Isn’t the fact that it doesn’t even have a name yet a bad enough sign that it won’t last? Plus, spin-offs based on a one-off premise in the show isn’t the type of thing that lasts typically. Remember The Finder?
Splitting up Together- This is mostly on here due to the bad title rule which states that any show that has a title that is deemed to be bad in any way (to me, at least, since I’m the only one I know who does these predictions before the season starts) will wind up cancelled at the end of the season. We’ll see what happens as it could end up being a great show.
Deception- Admittedly, I don’t know anything about this show going into the next season. But I feel that it will go the way of the last show named Deception that didn’t last long either. We’ll see what ends up happening in the long term.
Alex Inc.- This is another example of the bad title rule. It might end up being a great show in the long term or it could suck. But I don’t know much about a lot of these before I make my predictions. Besides, if this isn’t cancelled next season, I still won’t count it as wrong anyways.
The Crossing- I’m not sure how I’ll keep writing the equivalent of bad title rule in what amounts to at least three lines of a paragraph (or really long sentence) in this and every post I write on this document I use to do these updates. But I might as well try even if they don’t look like three sentences when they are published in the end.
The Toy Box- I might have had this mistakenly listed as cancelled in a previous post. It premiered at a weird enough time that I didn’t know until later that it was coming back. Hopefully they can change some of the show in the future as it is currently just a lot of push and pull for just one toy to win a competition. I do like this enough that I wouldn’t want it cancelled, but I don’t think that it will last for this or other future seasons. Plus, why is its starting air date so early into the season?
Roseanne- In addition to my bad title rule and newly created spin-offs won’t work rule, another rule that is important to note is the reboots won’t be successful rules. I don’t know how or why old sitcoms are coming back and they probably won’t last long in the grand scheme of things.
Quantico- This probably shouldn’t have lasted until the next season and I’ve heard enough potential problems regarding cast changes. It is randomly being downgraded to midseason, cutting its episode count at a key moment when having a full season would have ensured another one beyond it. I hope that it lasts and does well, but I just don’t know.
American Idol- There was a reason that this show ended the first time and that reason could lead to it ending again. I don’t know why people would want it back so we’ll see if the great ratings it once had will return or not. Typically, if it is cancelled once, that means that it could get cancelled again.
Match Game- While you wouldn’t think that a show would wind up cancelled when it does something like airing an unprecedented three seasons in a year’s time, I have not yet seen any proof that it is even returning for future seasons. Plus, I can’t ignore the fact that it quickly filled the gap of a cancelled show and those shows wind up ending themselves.
Bachelor in Paradise- If it does air in the future, it could be the end of it. If it doesn’t air, then it really is the end of it. There was a whole huge controversy about it regarding a potential sexual assault that could have happened on the show. I say this is more likely to end than stay around since it is forever tainted even if the allegations prove to be false.
Primetime: What Would You Do?- Normally, I wouldn’t put a summer show on the list, but I put any of them that I have a strong enough guess about. This show never seems to be on as much as I would like and it could last longer or it could end soon. I almost wrote it off as cancelled before I learned that it would be coming back this current summer. But it could happen that sometime it won’t ever come back and I’m prepared for that even though this is my favorite show of all time.
What I think is safe: The Goldbergs (this is already renewed past this coming season so unless something weird happens, I don’t see it as ending any time soon), Modern Family (this is also renewed beyond the upcoming season so it will last longer too), Shark Tank (I doubt that this show will end even if it is moving to a terrible timeslot), To Tell the Truth (this show keeps lasting and even if it doesn’t stick around, it will be back like it has before), America’s Funniest Home Videos (I don’t know why people still watch it or ABC keeps it around if nobody does, but this will keep lasting until people stop recording themselves doing dumb things, which is never), Dancing with the Stars (unless this is replaced entirely with the kid’s version of it, which is doubtful, I don’t see this show ending), The Middle (this show is still popular enough to keep lasting for now)
Safe predictions continued: Fresh off the Boat (I think that this has to stay around due to syndication rules), Black-ish (this is still very popular and I don’t know why it wouldn’t last), Speechless (enough people still like this last I checked), American Housewife (maybe this won’t last, but I just don’t see it failing right now), Designated Survivor (in this day and age, this political thriller is the type of thing that everybody needs and it should stay around as a result), Grey’s Anatomy (this show remains popular and I don’t see it ending any time soon), How to Get Away with Murder (I’m pretty sure that this will have to stick around if I have the timeframe of it getting a syndication deal right), 20/20 (unless we somehow run out of current events and true crime stories, then this will keep lasting)
Wisdom of the Crowd- Maybe this will last, but most Sunday shows on CBS (any network, actually) don’t tend to last as long as you would like and we’ll have to see if this lasts pasts the meddling football delays from September until the end of the year.
NCIS: Los Angeles- This is not airing on a good night and will have to do a bit of a reset this upcoming season bringing us changes to the show that might not go over well with fans. This is an aging show too and that could spill doom for it.
Madam Secretary- Every season, some unfortunate show airs at 9 Central on Sundays on CBS if it is lucky, although most nights it will get pushed back to even later. This will have the worst timeslot in television history and could last beyond the upcoming season and even longer in its timeslot, but I just don’t see it lasting long anymore, especially since the election results changed everything.
Kevin Can Wait- There are too many things changing with this show between its first season and second which makes me think that it won’t last. It will probably anger too many people and I’m not even sure that I’ll like it since it is already questionable in terms of quality.
Hawaii Five-0- Maybe I don’t know enough about why Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park were let go as it seemed like they were fired for wanting their fair share of money. But this is the type of thing that can anger fans into not watching and the show is aging.
Me, Myself, and I- Woo, oo, it’s just me, myself, and I, going right until I die, baby you got me for life- oops. I got distracted there, didn’t I? Are those even the right lyrics? I don’t know. Anyways, this is on here due to me not knowing anything about it and thinking that it won’t last as a result which isn’t that good a reason, I’ll admit. But this is my blog after all and I can do whatever predictions I want to.
9JKL- This is on here due to the bad title rule and not many other reasons. Maybe it could last for a good long while or maybe it will just end after a bit. I don’t know for sure what will happen, but I don’t have high, long term hopes for it.
Young Sheldon- If The Great Indoors proved anything, it proved that a show with acceptable ratings that airs after The Big Bang Theory could still wind up cancelled at the end of the season for seemingly no good reason. Also, spin-offs recently haven’t done that well so I don’t know yet why this would be any different from the others.
NCIS: New Orleans- This will probably need a ratings boost going into it next season. Well, one source I read said that it was getting good ratings, but I don’t think that I have the right numbers that matter. It will be starting next season with a new showrunner and he will need to improve this show as best he can. There were lesser plots in the season that just aired so hopefully the show can be less dark in the future as it just doesn’t seem to work that well in the long term.
Elementary- There is so much against this going into next season that I’m hoping that it won’t have an early summer burn off a la Person of Interest. It will more than likely be airing its last season when it returns so we’ll see if that happens or not.
Code Black- Warning signs are not something that you should ignore when it comes to prediction if a show will stick around or not. Sometimes they mean nothing, but I don’t see why a show that never had a real full season order thus far or getting downgraded to midseason will return.
48 Hours: NCIS- Honestly, this is more of just a type of program that the main 48 Hours offers instead of a legitimate spin-off. That is why I think that it is safe to say that it won’t be coming back for future seasons although it might return in the future.
SEAL Team- This doesn’t seem to be a thing that will last in my mind, although it could last. I don’t know why it is even on here, but, in a way, you have to be harsher towards the newer shows as they are less likely to survive than any returning show.
Criminal Minds- The Wednesday timeslot that this will be airing at has seemed to produce at least one cancellation a season on this network. This show is aging like many others and the franchise it tried to create lead to two failed spin-offs. This isn’t successful as much anymore.
S.W.A.T.- This Thursday timeslot that it will be airing at has been poison and produced three out of four cancellations for what has aired at it during around a whole year’s time. This show will probably not last long as a result.
MacGyver- While it will probably last for a while, I’m not sure that it will. It was odd enough that it didn’t air all of the main season although it could be unimportant in the future. I guess this is another in my I don’t know much but it could happen so I might as well include it in my predictions prediction.
Instinct- What have all the midseason dramas that premiered on CBS that weren’t spin-offs have in common? They were all cancelled. While I’m hoping that I will like this as it is a medical drama, sadly that is another reason to put it on this list as I can’t remember the last medical drama that lasted long on CBS. Do you? I'd like to know as it couldn't have been recently.
By the Book- Most sitcoms at midseason on CBS aren’t doomed for sure, but they probably won’t last the way others will that start during the fall. Or, this is a drama that could fail as well. I’m not doing research like I should with this, but midseason on CBS is normally poison.
Man with a Plan- Why is this being downgraded to midseason? I have no idea. But I do know that most shows that the networks care about aren’t at midseason. If I haven’t mentioned a randomly made a midseason show rule as one that I use, then this is just another example of it.
Superior Donuts- Maybe I just found myself less than impressed by this show and that is why it is on this list. Honestly, it isn’t even a show that I outright hate. But I think that it doesn’t have as much going for it as some other shows do so that is why I think that it won’t last.
The Amazing Race- Once again, this long running show won’t start until sometime during midseason. Once again, it might not matter in the end as this time didn’t affect it in any bad way. This could just be a one season a year show from now one when it was so used to having two. But whatever the reason, I just don’t think it is as safe as it has been in the past.
Scorpion- I believe that ratings for this show were starting to drop in its most recent season. If it ends up staying too low, then this show will end. Now it could wind up not affecting the future of this show. But that is always something to be concerned about.
What I think is safe: The Big Bang Theory (I think that this is already renewed and if it isn’t, it will more than likely stay around), 60 Minutes (I doubt this show will ever be in danger of cancellation), Bull (if this ends, it won’t be soon, considering how it has a great timeslot), NCIS (I doubt this will end any time soon, although weird things could happen, but even though this will be starting with new showrunners, this will still keep lasting a while), 48 Hours (this probably won’t end unless crimes stop happening), Survivor (when has this ever been in danger of cancellation?)
Safe predictions continued: Mom (I don’t know why people like this or watch it, but they still do so this will still last), Life in Pieces (I think that this is in the right sweet spot where syndication is close and cancellation won’t make sense even if the ratings get really low), Blue Bloods (this is still going strong and I doubt it will end any time soon), Undercover Boss (I don’t know how it keeps lasting, but it does and will stay for a while), Big Brother (this should be on the schedule for next summer and if it isn’t yet, it probably will be then because people still like it)
Legends of Tomorrow- There are just enough warning signs regarding this that could make one doubt its long term chances at success. It has not yet had a full season, which is doesn’t need to stay around, but it should help since I don’t think that this is a limited run series like other ones are. This might last, but there are some issues to the long term chances it could have.
Riverdale- I don’t have much reason of saying that this show will get cancelled. I just think that it could do to unpredictability between seasons. It didn’t do that great this season and could wind up failing next season. Be on the lookout to see if it gets a full season order next year because if it doesn’t, that could spill its future death. This one is just me thinking things could be unpredictable and this could be a result of it.
Dynasty- This is a reboot and it doesn’t look good either. Don’t expect a cancellation from this network until May, though, unless it is a final season announcement. While it could last and could be good, I just don’t see it as lasting.
The 100- This could be close enough to syndication after this season that it might not actually be in any danger of cancellation. But it never seems to do that well in terms of ratings and those bubble shows eventually pop at some point.
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend- This show may be liked by some critics, but there are not yet enough ratings for this show to stick around long term. Plus, the fact that it hasn’t had a full season yet is concerning enough for its long term chances.
Jane the Virgin- It is always very telling what shows are not shown in reruns. The ratings are waning for this show and they changed far too much of it. Plus, it is now on Fridays where most long running shows go to die. I know that Hawaii Five-0 has lasted after being moved to Fridays, but most other shows don't.
Life Sentence- This will be on at midseason which on the CW is more and more becoming a death sentence for shows simply because the network has already renewed a bunch of shows and there wouldn’t be much room for any more after that. It could last and stay around a while. But I’m harsher on new shows in my predictions because they don’t last on networks most of the time.
Black Lightning- Normally I wouldn’t be too concerned about a superhero show lasting on the CW, provided, that is, it was part of Arrowverse. But the fact that this isn’t (planned to be, at the moment at least) seems enough of a concern to doubt its chances. But if the other show is more likely to fail (given the rate of one of the new midseason shows failing and the other one lasting) than this would likely stay around for a bit longer. Besides, this is more likely to fail if people actually do think that there are too many superhero shows already, which they could.
The Originals- You can read my original thoughts after this sentence, but it is officially going into its final season so my prediction would wind up being right. This likely only survived into this season simply because the show it span off from ended last season and you wouldn’t see a show and its spin-off end in one season. (If you think that rule of mine doesn’t apply, then I’d need to know two shows that were the original show and its spin-off ending in the same season.) Its time is running out and I don’t see why it would last since people were probably more interested in the original show than this.
iZombie- This seems to keep struggling in the ratings time in and time out but has survived thus far on good luck. It being sent to midseason for three out of four times is pretty bad for long term chances and I don’t know if it can keep lasting or not so I put it here.
What I think is safe: Supergirl (this seems to be soaring high in terms of ratings and it would be too close to syndication for cancellation to make sense), Valor (this could fail, but I don’t see anything military related failing at the moment), The Flash (something huge would have to change for this to get cancelled any time soon), Supernatural (has this ever been in danger of cancellation? I don’t think that it has and it has existed longer than the network it airs on), Arrow (maybe this could end if they went overboard on the deaths of important people between seasons which we all know likely didn’t happen, but I don’t think that this will end any time soon since it is still going through)
New Girl- This is officially ending sometime next season so to not include it on this list would be dumb since it will be the final season coming up. There’s not really much else to add besides that. The final season will air and that will be that.
Bob’s Burgers- This is more of a fill the crack show, the type of which doesn’t tend to last that long. However, it has lasted as long as it has and Undercover Boss has also lasted while being this type of show. So if could last, but this is here in case it doesn’t.
Ghosted- Maybe this could last, but I don’t see it as happening. Shows that air after The Simpsons tend not to last. Outside of that, it seems like too limited a premise to work and it could be too weird for most viewers to care about.
The Orville- What Seth McFarlane show can you think of that hasn’t gotten cancelled at least once? If this is the only one, then that would be because it hasn’t had the chance to be cancelled yet (although a lot of shows are cancelled before they ever air like Murder Police). While this could be great, a lot of what he does is hit and miss and I don’t think that live action shows suit him well.
Lucifer- Maybe this is only on here because I don’t like it, but I also don’t see it having a long term chance on television. This is too weird for most people and doesn’t have enough episodes yet for its upcoming third season to justify coming back more.
The Gifted- If this is the type of show that I think it will be, it is a show that I’ll love and be upset that it was cancelled by or at the end of the season. FOX does well with most of the X-Men franchise in movie terms (by making lots of money, if not critical love) so I don’t know if they need a live action X-Men TV show although I hope that it can be as good as some of the movies and last.
Lethal Weapon- Maybe I don’t have that good reasoning for this being on here. But I think that it is moving to a lesser timeslot or later in the season. I don’t have the reference for this right now. But I think that it could be cancelled and that’s all that matters.
The Mick- I’ll admit that this is only on here because I hate it and I haven’t even seen an episode of it yet. These shows can be on my prediction list for any reason and me not liking a show that is probably absolute shit is a good enough reason in my mind to think that it will be cancelled.
Star- This show is awful and is too much like Glee by trying to make a point about different touchy subjects in the absolute wrong way. I don’t understand the point of it and think that it won’t last very long in the future which is why I’m putting it on this list.
The Exorcist- Here’s another show that probably shouldn’t have survived into this next season. But it did and I won’t think that it will last another one. But strange things happen with TV shows all the time and it could stay around, but I don’t see that as likely.
The Resident- The only other medical drama that lasted a long time on FOX was House. It seems that this show will also have a shady protagonist as a main character and other characters of morally questionable intent. Maybe they want this to be the next House. But I don’t know if it will last as there are too many things against it already.
9-1-1- This is here due to the bad title rule which states that if for no other reason, a show with a bad title will wind up cancelled at the end of the season. Maybe this will end up being a great show that will last for a decade. But knowing nothing else about it, I’ll still put it on this list.
LA to Vegas- Here’s another example of the bad title rule which can often be irrelevant in the long term. So we’ll see what this ends up being about and if it ends up being good, but I don’t think that I’ll be interested enough unless it is.
The X-Files- I don’t think that FOX cares enough about this show. It has been over a year since it has aired a new episode and I might have written it off as cancelled if they hadn’t announced that they were in fact bringing this back for another season. In short, they don’t care enough about this show and that is why I think it will end yet again.
What I think is safe: The Simpsons (I think that this is already renewed and even if it isn’t, it will likely stay around even if people don’t remember that it is even on), Family Guy (this will keep lasting for as long as people want their weekly dose of political incorrectness), The Last Man on Earth (this has lasted as long as it has and I think that it is close to syndication and will stay because of it), Brooklyn Nine-Nine (this might not need more episodes for syndication, but it is still flying high and I feel that it will last longer as a result)
Safe predictions continued: Empire (a lot of people like this show still so it will keep lasting), Gotham (Thursdays can be hit and miss on FOX, but this show has never been in danger of cancellation before and it seems likely to last longer), Hell’s Kitchen (only if Gordon Ramsey were to die or quit doing TV would this be in danger of ending), MasterChef (this will last as long as Gordon Ramsey is still around), MasterChef Junior (here’s another show that will stay as long as its host keeps doing it)
Law & Order: True Crime- This is already mentioned as an event series meaning that they don’t care unless it gets good ratings in which case it will actually be back. When it has a limited premise in the very beginning, then it likely won’t last.
Will & Grace- Most reboots don’t last. I don’t know why they are bringing this back. Maybe there is a good enough reason to bring this back, but I don’t know why. I don’t even know if it will be the same type of show that it once was which could also be a problem.
The Brave- This show isn’t airing at a good timeslot so that’s against it. I don’t know what else there is to say about this so that I can come up with the three lines that I always like to write for these posts (three lines is minimum as I can go over).
The Blacklist- Maybe I don’t have a good enough reason to put it on this list, but I think that it might not do as well on Wednesdays at such an early timeslot. While I guess a show there can last, there would have to be more of them in the future for me to change my mind about the timeslot.
Great News- While maybe this wasn’t too much of an illogical renewal going into this season, most comedies on this network don’t last anymore as evidenced by the few comedies they have and the short amount of time that even the longest running among them lasts.
Blindspot- Here’s another long running show moving to Fridays. Of course, this is more likely to last if it is indeed on its third full season in a row. I guess that we will see what ends up happening, but if it is borderline like this, I’ll put it on my list.
Taken- This shouldn’t have been renewed for another season given its lackluster ratings the previous season. Because of that, it could wind up cancelled like many other shows before it that also suffered the same fate.
Timeless- If they cared about this show, it wouldn’t have been cancelled originally. Even though they are actually bringing it back, I just don’t see it lasting as long. I repeat myself a lot in this blog post, I realize. But it helps me make my point.
The Wall- Maybe it is just me, but I don’t see this as anything more than a Plinkco rip-off that I’m surprised can be milked out for a whole hour. Plus, the only game show that has really lasted long on this network is Hollywood Game Night so I don’t know why this one would stick around long.
Good Girls- I know nothing about the show going into it which is why I think that it might not last going into it. I have nothing but a gut feeling thinking that this will not last. Maybe it will be a good and interesting show, but I just don’t know.
Reverie- Here’s another show that I know nothing about outside of its terrible name. Well, maybe it is a good name. I honestly don’t even know what reverie means. I could look up synonyms on my laptop and google it. But I don’t think that I care and I don’t think this show will last.
AP Bio- I actually do know the plot of this and it sounds absolutely terrible. Can you imagine if they tried to do Breaking Bad as a comedy? Well, that seems to be what the plot of this show is about, only not anywhere nearly as good as Breaking Bad might be.
Champions- I think that I’m running out of reasons for why I’m putting some of these on my list. But I don’t think that this show will last and I’m not even sure that I have a good reason for it. Also, why are so many NBC shows at midseason now?
The Awesome Show- Surely a show that calls itself awesome would be awesome, right? Maybe it will be, but I don’t think that a strong, declarative name helped Best Time Ever last so I don’t think that this show will last as a result.
Ellen’s Game of Games- Ellen DeGeneres has a great talk show that I wish I could see on a regular basis but almost never get a chance to anymore. But I think that everything else she has tried to do on television outside of her show didn’t last. I guess we’ll find out if First Dates returns, but I don’t think that it will and I don’t think that this will last either.
Genius Junior- Hopefully this can avoid being another quiz bowl scandal show like Our Littlest Genius was, a show that I remember being advertised, but was cancelled before it even premiered due to a scandal. While this show likely won’t be affected by a scandal, I just don’t see it lasting long as kid based shows don’t always have the same appeal that most shows would nor would they last sometimes even if they do other times. Regardless of how confusing this might sound, even with a scandal, this should still wind up cancelled, at least according to me. Or it could wind up as popular as Little Big Shots.
The Handmade Project- This sounds like another in a long line of lame reality shows. While I can at times get occasionally interested in some reality shows, this one just sounds like it has short lasting written all over it. I don’t know if it even is reality.
Rise- Here’s yet another show that I feel has a bad title. Let’s come up with the rest of this paragraph. I just love to talk. Blah, blah, blah, and blah, blah, blah. Isn’t that interesting? I wonder just how similar I sound to a broken record at times.
Trial and Error- One would wonder why they would do a show that has to start fresh again each new season and expect it to last a long time. One can wonder why this isn’t milking the Emmy’s best limited series nomination every year like so many other shows do.
What I think is safe: This is Us (somehow, it is already renewed for a third season when it got a second season renewal), The Voice (this is popular and keeps lasting somehow even though it is a rip-off of American Idol that somehow killed it), Superstore (while I said that most NBC comedies don’t last, I feel that this will for now as they need something), The Good Place (this is one of the most creative shows that I can think of, although this might be too different or have a sudden ratings drop), Chicago Fire (this is likely to keep lasting as the franchise stays strong), Law & Order: SVU (there is no reason that this show will end any time soon)
Safe predictions continued: Chicago PD (I see no reason why this would end at the moment), Dateline (if there is one fact about NBC, it is that they will keep airing Dateline until the end of time), Little Big Shots (this is a popular show and will keep lasting as long as Steve Harvey is still alive), Shades of Blue (this is a show that we need as it makes conflicted people look very interesting and can be a surprise that the writing or acting doesn’t get it Emmys), Chicago Med (here’s another popular show from a popular franchise that will likely stay around)
Well, that’s all for this post of mine. I don’t know if I forgot to mention any shows and I know that a lot of what I don’t know about and isn’t mentioned yet won’t be in these predictions and will be cancelled as usually happens. And that’s pretty much all there is to say.
