Black Lightning: The show dropped to a 0.3 this week in the key demographic. That may be somewhat disappointing, but in the context of things, the BET Hip Hop Awards aired while Black Lightning was on the air. While that may not have affected things as much as many people would like to admit, the rest of the WB shows on the CW are pulling a 0.4 or higher in the ratings. At least one WB show will likely pull 0.3s by the end of fall, and in the context of declining ratings overall, this does not warrant an immediate downgrade for it. Black Lightning remains likely to be renewed, unless ratings decline further.

All American: Pending an expected drop to a 0.1 later on, All American is now likely to be canceled. For a WB rookie, being the lowest rated non-Friday show on the CW is not an acceptable level for it.

The rest of the CW may get some upgrades in the next installment, barring any ratings collapses.
