Lincoln Rhyme: Hunt For the Bone Collector: It wasn't a very high rating, but the 0.6 that NBC's newest show premiered to was pretty impressive given that it felt like a textbook burnoff. It showed that there was genuine interest in the show. I was optimistic that it had a shot at renewal. Then it dropped two tenths in week two despite NBC trying its hardest to keep people interested in it (including a post-football repeat the day after it premiered). I find it hard to believe that things will get better from here, save for a potential one-tenth uptick on a random week, and I think they'd prefer to bring back The Blacklist or move something new to Fridays than renew a show that'll be hitting a 0.4 at maximum. It's already moving to a LIKELY CANCELLATION.

Perfect Harmony: I gave it an upgrade a few updates ago, but I now see that my initial instinct was clearly the right one. I had it as a CERTAIN CANCELLATION from week one, and it's back down to that this week after hitting a 0.28 last week. One data point isn't enough to kill a show, but this one has consistently rated terribly and is just getting worse. Sunnyside was pulled after a higher rating (it would then hit the 0.28 the week after NBC announced it was pulled, its final airing on the network). This show is done.
