Summer Renew/Cancel, Week 6: Trial & NBC Made An Error Renewing This Show

The last two premieres of the Summer came in the last week, with both Trial & Error and Burden of Truth making their debuts since the last renew/cancel update. I have my initial predictions for both of those shows below, as well as some updates on the previously-airing shows.

Certain to be Canceled:
Reverie (0.4, 0.4-0.6)

Likely to be Canceled:
Take Two (0.4, 0.4-0.5)
Trial & Error (0.6, 0.5-0.6)

Leans Cancellation:
Marlon (0.6, 0.6-0.7)
The Outpost (0.1, 0.1-0.2)
Salvation (0.3, 0.3-0.4)

Leans Renewal:

Likely to be Renewed:
Burden of Truth (0.2)

Certain to be Renewed:

Fate Determined:
Code Black (Canceled)
Elementary (Renewed)
Quantico (Canceled)
Shades of Blue (Final Season)
The 100 (Renewed)

Trial & Error: The sophomore comedy returned last week with 0.6/0.5 half-hours for its double-episode premiere. Both episodes were a tenth below where Marlon was for its premiere, and the second episode was lower than anything Marlon did all season long. This isn't surprising, since the show was a flop to begin with and it barely even got a second season. It was always going to be an underdog for renewal, especially being a Warner Bros. production, unlike Marlon, an NBCU production. While there wasn't much incentive to renew it last season, there seems to be even less this season, so it starts out as a LIKELY CANCELLATION.

Burden of Truth: One of two CW scripted series this Summer, Burden of Truth started its season last night with a just-fine 0.2. A 0.2 for a premiere doesn't usually indicate long-term success, but for Summer on the CW, it isn't too bad. It's higher than The Outpost started, and it's on par with Friday reality series Masters of Illusion. It's also probably dirt-cheap, given that it's a Canadian import. Its Canadian home, CBC, has already renewed the show, so it needed to bomb HARD for the CW to cancel it. It didn't, so it's a LIKELY RENEWAL, the first show this season to be placed in the renewal column.

Reverie: Seriously, how has this show not been pulled yet?

What do you think of my predictions? What are your predictions? Let me know in the comments, and don't forget to vote in the poll of the week!
