Summer Renew/Cancel Predictions - August 21: Mr. Robinson Will Likely be Renewed

Hi! In case this is your first time reading my summer renew/cancel predictions post, I'm Hunter and I will be posting these predictions each weekend this summer, covering the summer shows on the five major broadcast networks. This is week ten, which included the finales of Mr. Robinson and The Astronaut Wives Club. Now, here are the summer shows divided into categories, and then my in-detail thoughts on a few of them. Enjoy!

Yet to Premiere
The Carmichael Show (NBC)

Since Mr. Robinson's ratings remained fairly steady, and the ratings weren't bad, I decided to move it up to "will likely be renewed". While it did get a lead-in of America's Got Talent, which got a 1.6 rating the last two weeks, the 1.0 rating it got in most episodes is probably good enough for summer. Despite the fact that the show's season is over, I may still move it depending on the ratings that The Carmichael Show gets. The Carmichael Show premieres next Wednesday and airs two episodes a night for three weeks, just like Mr. Robinson.

Extant's chances are getting slimmer. This week it again got a 0.7. I predict that, unless the remaining four episodes all get 0.8 or higher, the show will be canceled. There is a chance that it can still be renewed without hitting those numbers, and there is a chance that even if it hits those numbers it can be canceled.

Could it be any more dead? That's what some may ask about The Whispers after it hit a new low of 0.5 this week. Its chances were decent back in June, but when ABC didn't renew it by the end of the month, so the cast's contracts expired, and ratings slipped, the show's fate became certain. And, while it was certain enough already, this week the show hit its third consecutive series low. How low will hit go in its two remaining episodes? 0.4? 0.3? No matter what, it is 100% dead.

Next week, I will have my first prediction on The Carmichael Show. Come back to see my prediction!

Do you agree or disagree with my predictions? How do you think the upcoming summer shows will do? Leave a comment with your thoughts!
