For the first time this season, we officially have zero shows as a Toss-Up!

After moving to Toss-Up last week, Magnum P.I. finds itself as Likely to be Cancelled once again this week. The full season order was a vote of confidence for the freshman series, but there is nothing in its ratings data that makes it look like a long term option. L+SD ratings have hovered in the 0.8 range, with Bull holding onto most of the audience in a much tougher 10 o'clock timeslot. On top of that, L+3 and L+7 data shows little growth, with most in the 20-30% range.

Meanwhile, shifting in the other direction is sophomore SEAL Team, now as Likely to be Renewed. The ratings have been pretty darn awful in the Wednesday 9 o'clock spot, barely holding onto half of its Survivor lead in. Additionally, Criminal Minds has the better L+3 and L+7 numbers between the two shows and that one is Likely to be Cancelled. The fate of SEAL Team will come down to whether or not CBS can get a syndication deal for the show - and its only season two. Until we see data confirming this one is on its way out, its safe to return for a third season. CBS seems to really love the show, and continues to promote it on a weekly basis.

Other than that, there is not much movement on the charts. Happy Together has performed OK in its Monday 830 timeslot, but not enough to give it any breathing room beyond 13 episodes. Murphy Brown fell to its lowest ratings this past week, and is already capped at 13 episodes. CBS could very well bring it back for another season, although there is little reason to at this point. One thing to keep an eye on is Hawaii Five-0. Ratings have slipped a bit this season, and for a show now in its ninth season, costs are growing. Do not be surprised to see CBS dump it in favor of Magnum P.I. There is still a lot of season left before we see if that happens or not.
