Grey's Anatomy: As ABC's highest-rated drama and the foundation of their Thursday night line-up, there is no reason to fear for Grey's Anatomy's fate. The network will certainly be bringing it back to a 15th season in 2018.

Kevin Probably Saves the World: The dip that Kevin took this week to 0.6 doesn't look good, especially since it is the second consecutive one. However, we can't pretend that other factors don't matter. This week's episode aired against Game 6 of the World Series and on Halloween. If it can't rebound next week, I will downgrade Kevin. Until then, it remains likely to be renewed.

Fresh Off the Boat: Between ABC's two lower-rated returning comedies, Fresh Off the Boat was the weaker one this week, as both had similar retentions from their lead-ins, but Fresh Off the Boat was lower-rated. However, Speehless is still usually the weaker one, and syndication could end up being a reason for 20th Century FOX to push for renewal for Fresh Off the Boat. If one does get canceled, Speechless is more likely than Fresh Off the Boat, though right now I predict that both will be renewed.
