Downward Dog- After a soft premiere, ABC's newest comedy had a very solid week 2. It's 1.0 in week 2 was a strong hold that I didn't see coming. With the lower viewing levels and without a strong lead-in, I was expecting a 0.8 at best. Needless to say, this was a pleasant surprise. I'm not changing my prediction this week, as I'd like to see one more night of ratings for it before upgrading it. It faces America's Got Talent this week, so it could see a harsh drop.

Still Star-Crossed: Words cannot express how awfully Still Star-Crossed premiered. The ShondaLand  series premiered to a 0.5, with a 0.4 in the second half-hour. To put it lightly, that's terrible. Despite a solid 1.5 lead-in from the Bachelorette, the series could only garner a 0.6 in the first half. Even Shonda can't save a show with a 0.4 in its second half. The Catch couldn't even get a renewal, and it NEVER dipped this low. This ABC newbie is already a CERTAIN CANCELLATION.

Later this week, The Carmichael Show will premiere its third season. 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? Let me know in the comments below.
