Why Is Bordertown "Certain to be Canceled"?
LA Times
After miserably low ratings in the post-Family Guy time slot and being shoved to 7pm without a renewal announced, I had Bordertown as a certain cancelation. It showed promise rising from week 1
to week 2 despite the football boost more or less being over by the time it aired, and for holding surprisingly well at its move to 7pm--even at just a 0.8. I have heard people say that NASCAR could have been boosting it, though I can't find any NASCAR ratings so I'm not sure if it's true.

Anyways, NASCAR or not, it slipped all the way down to a 0.4 A18-49 rating (M18-34 will probably be no higher than a 0.5). Here's a little song that might describe FOX's freshmen comedies of the season:

Why Is Grandfathered Still in the "Watching" Column?
This is great news for Grandfathered if they intend on renewing a freshmen comedy. Though, they could easily cancel it and PR Scream Queens as their comedy renewal (after all, it would be the #2 comedy on cable everyone (!!!)). Grandfathered would be an easy cancellation call if it wasn't for the three even bigger flops they premiered this season. That's the sole reason why it's still in the "Watching" column.
