A Million Little Things: I've been waiting all season to make this show a certain renewal. I haven't spoken about it at all, and now that it's settling into its new slot, I think it's time. While not a hit, and not the strongest retainer, it's still doing well on a network that's been struggling in the scripted drama department this season. It's currently doing better than HTGAWM at 10 ()hough it has a stronger lead-in), and though it seems certain to hit the 0.5s HTGAWM was frequently scoring, I doubt it'll make 0.4s its regular rating like Stumptown and HTGAWM have done. ABC isn't in the position to get rid of a solid performer like AMLT. I was waiting to upgrade it until I saw its performance in its new slot, and now that I see it's doing just fine, I'm upgrading it to a CERTAIN RENEWAL.

The Good Doctor: Another show I haven't spoken about is The Good Doctor. It's been a CERTAIN RENEWAL all season long, and that won't be changing. It certainly isn't the massive hit that it once was, but it's still a very respectable player. Despite being distributed by Sony, there's no chance that the show isn't on ABC's schedule next season. Its 0.82 average makes it easily the #1 10 PM drama on ABC this year, topping #2 The Rookie by over two tenths. A fourth season is a certainty.

Emergence: I'll end this update by saying a quick farewell to Emergence, which wrapped up its first season since the last update. Its ratings were terrible despite decent sampling, and its 0.3s are simply not enough to make a renewal even a remote possibility. It ends season one as a CERTAIN CANCELLATION, and this will be the last I speak of it until May.

What do you think of my predictions? What are your predictions? Let me know in the comments and don't forget to vote in the poll of the week!
