The Night Shift: This medical drama returned this week with a dismal 0.6. This is really bad for an unowned series that took quite some time to get renewed last season. While it still theoretically could tick up to a decent number, the prognosis is bad on this one. It isn't going to be easy for it to get a renewal. It's also pretty far from syndication, so I'm not sure how badly Sony is going to push for this one. It's LIKELY TO BE CANCELED.

Still Star-Crossed: While ABC isn't outright saying it, this show is a cancelled. The show is being moved to Saturdays, where it will die. There is no chance of a renewal at this point. I'm considering it  DE FACTO CANCELED

Downward Dog: Despite doing respectable numbers for its first few weeks and finding a pretty loyal audience, this ABC sitcom has unfortunately been taken to the pound by ABC. It has been CANCELLED after one season leaving fans (like myself) devastated.

Stay tuned next week and every Tuesday after that for my initial predictions on Zoo, which starts its third season later this week.

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