Jane the Virgin: Why is this show now certain to be renewed? Consider this: CBS Studios Production, a Golden Globes nomination, and a Critics Choice Award nomination. It's the second time the show has been nominated for any awards outside of both the People's Choice Awards and the Teen Choice Awards. The show is also steady in the ratings, even though they are low, but not as dreadfully low as they could be. It's one more full season away to be eligible for the automatic syndication rule. What more can I say? CBS affirmative action for the win. 

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: Even though Rachel Bloom earned both a Golden Globes nomination and a Critics Choice Award nomination, the same cannot be said for her show. It's painfully obvious that Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is still certain to be canceled. Unlike Jane the Virgin, which received a full season order last year after two episodes, this show waited until November to receive a partial backorder. Jane the Virgin premiered to a 0.6 last year, this show premiered to a anemic 0.3 A18-49 rating this season. Sorry Rachel Bloom, you may have gotten awards buzz, but 0.2-0.3 ratings for a musical dramedy just doesn't cut it. 

In midseason, Containment is still yet to be scheduled. It looks like that the show will possibly premiere around early April with some of the episodes filling into summer. This possible late start definitely smells like this season's The Messengers. The pilot was criticality panned at Comic Con this past summer so I'm surprised that the CW has decided to give it a shot. Since The Vampire Diaries and The Originals will move to Fridays, also known as the day where shows allegedly go to die, although this has been debunked by Supernatural, it's becoming very clear that the Julie Plec era is on its last legs and will come to an end sooner or later. 

Question: Which Warner produced  shows do you think will go to the chopping block to make room for CBS shows in the coming years?
