Saturday Night Live: I haven't talked about SNL this season, but now seems like a good time. The long-running comedy series is one of the highest-rated shows on NBC this season, with its recent, Matt Damon-hosted episode scoring a 2.0. It could be doing half of that and still coast to a renewal, but it's not just getting by. It's thriving, and it's a certain renewal. It will be a merry Christmas indeed for the folks at SNL.

I Feel Bad: Unlike SNL, I've talked way too much about this show, considering that only about 12 people in the US actually watch it. That's an exaggeration, but it is incredibly low-rated. 0.4 now seems to be its ceiling, as it's hit that number for each of the last three episodes. Even in an earlier timeslot, it remained low-rated. Its December 27 burnoff finale will be the last time it's seen by anyone. It's a certain cancellation.

Manifest: This show is doing very well for its timeslot, but I've held off on upping it to a certain renewal. I'm still not ready to upgrade it, because I would like to see how it performs without The Voice. It's probably still going to have a large lead-in with AGT: The Champions, but Manifest has shows signs of wear and tear all season and it's fallen pretty consistently all year. We'll see if it can hold up with a lead-in change and a few months off. It stays a likely renewal for now. 

The Good Place: Since our last update, The Good Place was renewed. This was a correct prediction, as we've had the show listed as a certain renewal since September.

What do you think of these predictions? Which shows do you think will get coal in their stocking? Let me know in the comments below and don't forget to vote in the poll of the week!
