*Trial & Error's average discounts its recent, heavily inflated numbers.

Salvation: I've been holding steadfast on my leans cancellation prediction for weeks now, but it's time to change that. With the show now drawing five 0.3s in a row, it's time for a downgrade. It was a megaflop in season one, and it's still managed to decline almost 40%. I find it hard to believe that this show makes CBS enough money from a streaming deal to justify keeping 0.3s (or lower) on the schedule for another season. For that reason, I'm downgrading the show to a LIKELY CANCELLATION, even though it arguably deserves a worse categorization.

Trial & Error: It was announced this week that the deadline for NBC to renew the series had passed. Despite that, NBC maintains that it hasn't made a decision on the show yet, meaning it is still technically possible for the series to be renewed there. The odds of that actually happening, however, are basically zero. Not only is the deadline gone, but the show is drawing anemic ratings, with a 0.4 for its third and fourth episode this season. It may find a new home, but it is CERTAIN TO BE CANCELED by its current one.

Reverie: NBC finally bid this show adieu this week, with the flop newbie completing its episode order this week with another 0.4. The show got to air out its entire season in the slot, which it didn't deserve, but it won't air a minute longer on NBC. It's still a CERTAIN CANCELLATION.
