Good Girls: I haven't been too positive about this show's future all season, but I things are looking a lot better for it as time goes by. It's exceeding my expectations for it after that 0.7 premiere, and has managed to mostly avoid 0.5s aside from one in week 3. It's doing all this even as its World of Dance lead-in continues to fall to disappointing lows each week. Its retention of WoD is as good as NBC could realistically expect from a drama in that Sunday at 10 slot, and they'd probably be hard-pressed to find much that could improve on that slot. The show is also a seemingly strong performer on streaming. All of this, plus its ownership by NBC, puts it ahead of most of NBC's lower-tier non-renewed series, and I'm upgrading it to LEANS RENEWAL. It isn't out of the woods, but it's less dead than it was last week.

The Enemy Within: Last week, this was the other NBC drama that seemed to have a realistic shot at a renewal. This week's drop to 0.6, however, is making it much more of a long-shot. I won't be downgrading it, however. This is because that 0.6 comes with a caveat, as it earned that low against the huge NCAA Championship game on CBS. It's used to zero competition, and it got a lot more than it was used to this time around. If it stays at 0.6 next week, it's very unlikely that I'll keep it in the category it's in. But I don't have a crystal ball, so I'll give the show the chance to improve next week before any further moving takes place.
