Saturday Night Live: It's one of the longest-running and most iconic shows of all time. While not as huge as it was in the midst of the 2016 election and the early days of Donald Trump's administration, it's still one of the top comedies on TV, most recently scoring a 1.2 rating, in-line with its season average. That puts it ahead of the season averages of all but one comedy, the NFL-boosted The Simpsons. It goes without saying that a 46th season is guaranteed. It's a CERTAIN RENEWAL.

One Chicago: These shows aired their last episodes of 2019 this week and all experienced ratings upticks. They've consistently been bright spots on the NBC schedule, ranking as the network's #2 and #4 scripted shows (with 1.16 averages for each, Med and Fire tie for second place and also tie as the #5 scripted shows on TV) while PD is TV's #1 scripted 10 PM series by a wide margin. The creation of the One Chicago lineup is one of the smartest network moves in recent memory, and I see absolutely no way that it doesn't return in full next year. All three shows are CERTAIN RENEWALS.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine: Last week, NBC renewed Brooklyn Nine-Nine for a third season on the network, the show's eighth overall. As it hadn't even premiered season seven yet, it didn't have a prediction in the Renew/Cancel, though all signs pointed to a renewal.
