Summer Renew/Cancel - July 8: Mistresses is Certain to be Canceled

It's week eight, and while there were no premieres this week, as all of the summer shows have premiered already, there was shocking news of Uncle Buck's cancelation. The show dropped a tenth in its forth and final week to a number that was even with its second week. That low was 1.0, higher than some renewed in-season shows on ABC. While I missed that prediction, I would consider it one of the shocking bits of summer news we get each year.

Format for predictions:
Show title (network) (average 18-49 rating, season low-season high)

Certain to be Canceled
Aquarius (NBC) (0.4, 0.4-0.4)
BrainDead (CBS) (0.6, 0.5-0.7)
Houdini & Doyle (FOX) (0.5, 0.4-0.7)
Mistresses (ABC) (0.7, 0.4-0.8)

Likely to be Canceled
American Gothic (CBS) (0.7, 0.6-0.7)

Wayward Pines (FOX) (0.8, 0.7-0.9)

Likely to be Renewed
The Night Shift (NBC) (0.9, 0.8-1.1)
Zoo (CBS) (0.8, 0.8-0.8)

Certain to be Renewed

Fate Determined
Beauty and the Beast (CW) FINAL SEASON

Mistresses: When ABC aired an episode of this show on the 4th of July, it became obvious that they really don't care about it. If they canceled Uncle Buck with its ratings, there's no way that they are going to renew this show, which is averaging 0.7 and has aired most of its episodes following The Bachelorette.

Houdini & Doyle: This show ended its low-rated run with another 0.4 on Monday (yes, the 4th of July). Even with how inexpensive this show must be, it can't be worth it for FOX, as it would likely score 0.3s next summer if it returns, or worse.

The Night Shift: This show bounced back up this week to a 1.1. If it stays up there, it should definitely be renewed. Let's see if it remains stable, or if it drops back down to 0.8.

Wayward Pines: This show scored another 0.7 this week. I really don't know where to put it, but it has three more weeks to air, and hopefully those three weeks will make it more obvious where to put this show.

American Gothic: After dropping a tenth this week, this show is in danger of dropping down to certain to be canceled. But I won't move it yet, because I first want to be sure that Zoo remains stable and that this show stays down at 0.6 or lower, and doesn't just bounce back up to 0.7.

Zoo: Despite not having a very high rating, it remained stable in week two, and is still the highest rated summer show on CBS, beating out American Gothic's average by a tenth and beating its rating this week by two tenths. I doubt that CBS will cancel all three of their summer shows, like how ABC didn't cancel all four of theirs last year.
