Salvation: I was as confused as everyone else when Salvation scored a second season. The ratings just weren't there in season one, despite a huge (for Summer) lead-in. Expectations for season two could not have been any lower, and it performed as expected with a pathetic 0.4. Usually, I'd chuck a show in certain cancellation after... that and I would never speak of it again until the show's network officially rid itself. However, it hit that same 0.4 in season one, and it still got a second season. CBS needs to cancel this show, but with an Amazon deal that is likely solely responsible for season two, will they? It LEANS CANCELLATION, for now.

Reverie & Take Two: Both shows continued to perform abysmally, with both drawing 0.4s. Reverie even made a trip to 0.3 in the prelims before adjusting up. There's no chance that either will be back, and they remain CERTAIN CANCELLATIONS.

Marlon: I'm still unsure about what to do with Marlon. It's not doing well, but it is steady. That's good news for it, considering that I was pretty sure it'd be doing 0.5s by now. I still don't think it's doing well enough to get a third season, but it avoids a downgrade once again. It still LEANS CANCELLATION.

What do you think of my predictions? What do you think will become of Salvation? Let me know in the comments and vote in the poll below.
