Update #39: There is speculation that Code Black and Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders has been renewed. There is also speculation that The Odd Couple is looking good for a third season. Meanwhile, there is speculation that Limitless has been canceled. Once we get the official word, it will be on the live stream.
Update #40: Fingers crossed that if Limitless was canceled, there will probably be riots. Deadline and The Hollywood Reporter are speculating that things are not looking good for Limitless, and the show is apparently shopped around. Meanwhile, on NBC the fates of The Carmichael Show and The Mysteries of Laura remain to be determined. Here are some facts you may not know about both shows. The Carmichael Show is a show coproduced by NBC and 20th Century FOX. The Mysteries of Laura is WB. The Carmichael Show, although critically acclaimed, sank in the ratings and went fractional during season 2, while Laura's ratings were steady, but rather low yet the abysmal ratings and eventual cancelations of both Heartbeat and Game of Silence may increase its renewal chances. The Mysteries of Laura did not go fractional for its second season, although it did go fractional twice in its first season. One is a comedy, and one is a police procedural. Who will make it out alive, and who becomes the next cancelation on NBC? Stay tuned.
Update #41: Well My Time/Your Time was passed on at CBS. Welcome to late night bad news dump.
Update #42: It's time for me to close this live stream and call it a day. Unlike with ABC, it was pretty quiet, except for speculation. More to come tomorrow! Stay tuned to the TV Ratings Guide for any news missed during the night.
