Take Two: Shocking nobody, Take Two premiered with abysmal ratings this Thursday. ABC's night was filled with low ratings, but Take Two still doesn't have an excuse for its performance. A case could be made if it managed to hold onto the 0.7 for its lead-in Match Game, but it couldn't even do that. A 0.5 is just way too low to even put the show in contention for a renewal, and it has nothing going for it. It's (already) a CERTAIN CANCELLATION.

Marlon: Marlon is underperforming, there's not a question about that. However, its lead-in, Little Big Shots, isn't doing much better. That doesn't give Marlon, which had the huge AGT lead-in in season one, an excuse, but at least it's retaining LBS pretty well. Also boding well for it is that it held at that 0.6 that it received for last week's second episode, showing that it does have somewhat of an audience. I still think it's done, but it didn't hurt its chances at all this week, so it only LEANS CANCELLATION.

Reverie: Another week, another (series) low result. At this point, it's not a question of whether it's a CERTAIN CANCELLATION or not, it's a matter of whether it'll be moved to Saturdays or not.
