Perfect Harmony: I've been pretty hard on this show, and for good reason. Its 0.45 season average is pathetic. It makes it the lowest-rated new show of the season behind the already-canceled Sunnyside. So why am I upgrading it? My gut is just telling me that this show has a chance, no matter how small, or coming back. And since I have that small doubt in just how inevitable its cancellation is, I can't leave it as a certain cancellation. Make no mistake, the ratings and its 20th Century TV ownership should mean it's certainly a goner, but NBC has made strange comedy renewals in the past (albeit, under different leadership). For now, it's a LIKELY CANCELLATION.

Bluff City Law: Since our last update, NBC's only new fall drama wrapped up its first season run with an awful 0.56. Somehow that puts it smack dab in the middle of this season's crop of new shows, but it had a better lead-in than most of the other shows and no real excuse to bomb as badly as it did. I'm absolutely certain that this is a CERTAIN CANCELLATION.
