The Carmichael Show- Nothing's really changed for the Carmichael Show, ratings-wise. It keeps chugging along at 0.8s, which is a decent but not an excellent result. I have, however, discovered that cast options for the series expire in late June, and the show is nowhere near a renewal. This doesn't mean the the Carmichael Show is a certain cancellation, but it's not a great sign. Another factor working against it is that it isn't owned completely by NBC, as it's a 20th Century production. That could end up working against it, along with the fact that NBC's bench is already packed. For these reasons, NBC's longest-running sitcom (yes, really) LEANS CANCELLATION.

Still Star-Crossed: This megabomb of epic proportions returned this week with a 0.3. There's no excuse for that, it's one of the most pathetic cases of retention in recent memory. A 0.3 is horrifying for any show, and it's not even good for a CW show. Things are made even worse when considering its 1.6 lead-in of the Bachelorette. ABC would be better off airing repeats of Celebrity Family Feud, comedy shows, or literally anything here. Saying it's a CERTAIN CANCELLATION is an understatement.

Stay tuned next week and every Tuesday after that for my initial predictions on The Night Shift, which begins its run later this week.
