Spin The Wheel and Holey Moley: Both shows started off stronger than expected on Thursday, with Holey Moley even cracking a 1.0 for its premiere, topping the night. Spin The Wheel took second at 0.8, growing from its lead-in, the battered and bruised MasterChef. Neither data point is huge for an in-season premiere, but they are impressive for Summer debuts, especially given their expectations. I find it hard to believe that either will go low enough to be canceled, but with just one week's worth of data, I won't be putting either down as certain renewals. They start in the LIKELY RENEWAL category.

Family Food Fight and Reef Break: On the other end of the spectrum, you have these debuts. Family Food Fight had what could be described as a disastrous premiere at 9 behind
Holey Moley, and Reef Break had a lower (but less disastrous considering the circumstances) result at 10. Neither show had high expectations to begin with, but Family Food Fight undoubtedly underperformed and Reef Break met the low expectations. Neither of them really seem to have strong network support, and I don't see any real incentive for ABC to renew them. They're only bound to sink lower, with 0.4s and 0.3s probably in the future. They could suprise, but at this point, they're huge underdogs. They're LIKELY CANCELLATIONS.

The InBetween: Last week, The InBetween fell to a 0.4, making it down from Reverie for the first time this season. There really wasn't a path to renewal before, but now there isn't any way that this will be renewed. It was an in-season reject that needed to impress in order get a renewal, and it's doing anything but impressive. It's a CERTAIN CANCELLATION.

Blood & Treasure: Despite terrible ratings and pretty poor treatment from the network, this week Blood & Treasure became the first summer show of the season renewed to be renewed, aside from those that were renewed before their seasons began. It didn't deserve it based on the ratings, but there had to be an economical reason to justify this decision.

Blood & Treasure Renewed by CBS

CBS has renewed new summer drama Blood & Treasure for a second season. Despite poor ratings all season, the show will join the long line of CBS summer dramas to last at least two seasons. Currently posting a 0.5 average, the show is one of the weaker entries on broadcast this summer, but it likely has a strong financial incentive to justify another season of these low ratings. Matt Barr and Sofia Pernas star in the series, which features John Larroquette in a recurring role.

The Bullpen Season 2 Episode 4: Road Trip

Kurt: long-term reliever
Lorenzo: middle-relief pitcher
Jason: bullpen coach
Robert: 8th inning/setup pitcher
Bryan: closer
Eli: left-handed specialist
All: benchwarmer

Kurt: Looks like we're here everyone: Saint Louis.
Bryan: I'm ready to give it my all.
Lorenzo: Think we'll pitch in this one, coach?
Jason: Not answering to coach.
Lorenzo: You just did.
Jason: No.
Lorenzo: No what?
Jason: No, I don't think you'll pitch in this one.
Eli: I know I won't pitch.
Jason: Why not?
Eli: Every single player on the other team is right-handed. And you know what happens when I have to pitch to right-handed batters.
Robert: That happened once.
Eli: I'm not talking about the strikeouts, I'm talking about all the guys I've hit. My one pitch is to get those left-handed batters to swing at outside pitches. 
Jason: Yeah, Eli I think you somehow once had more hits in a game than the rest of the guys on the team combined. If you count the number of batters you hit, of course.
Lorenzo: Hey guys, is this the first time we've made it to the game before anyone else?
Jason: Yeah, you are right about this one...I don't even think the workers are here yet, never mind the players or the fans.
Bryan: Guess now is as good a time as ever to start warming up. Can never be too early.
Jason: Actually you can, but go ahead, throw a couple pitches. Just don't hit any of us. Or do.
Kurt: Any guesses on when people are going to get here?
Lorenzo: What time's the game again?
Jason: Don't even tell me we got here at the wrong time. If we did then we better be late and not early.
Kurt: No, the game is definitely supposed to start in a few minutes.
Lorenzo: They must all be stuck in traffic then. Or were we supposed to put the clocks back an hour last night?
Jason: I doubt everyone's in traffic. Maybe it's a low attendance game and all the players are still getting ready in their clubhouses, or wherever real players go before the game.
Eli: I'd doubt it's a low attendance game, these are two of the best teams in the nation playing tonight.
Robert: may all want to listen to what I'm about to say.
Jason: Just say it.
Robert: I looked on my phone. The game just started.
Jason: That's impossible, there's no one here! Wait. Oh.
Robert: Yeah. It's a home game. And the team is not playing any team from Saint Louis.
Jason: So we traveled to Saint Louis for nothing?
Lorenzo: And on the night I was supposed to pitch too!
Jason: Lorenzo you were not going to pitch tonight.
Robert: Yeah Jason, we traveled here for nothing. 
Eli: Jason, shouldn't you have been the one to stop this from happening?
Jason: I don't know, I figured you all knew what you were doing. Guess not.

Bryan: Now what, should we head home?
Robert: Nah, there's a game here in an hour. Let's find some seats.
Jason: And do exactly what we do at our home games? Sit down and basically do nothing?
Robert: Yeah.
Jason: Let's do it.
Bryan: OK then. Let the sitting begin.
