Downward Dog- The very first summer series to debut was in a pretty good position, as far as Summer series go. It had a nice promotional push and received the best comedy lead-in on ABC. The premiere was pretty disappointing in the ratings department, with a 1.1 rating. While that would be fine (and incredibly renewable) for a normal episode, especially if it was self-starting on Tuesday in Summer, this is a premiere with a cushy lead-in. I don't expect the show to hold up that number at all. But I don't have any actual facts to back that up at the moment, so for now the Allison Tolman-led sitcom LEANS CANCELLATION. Stay tuned for an update next week, when the series will potentially be downgraded.

Next Week, Still Star-Crossed will premiere. Stay tuned for my initial prediction for it next Tuesday, and my other predictions every Tuesday after that.

What do you think of my predictions? What do you think will become of Downward Dog? Let me know in the comments below.
