For Life: The newest part of the ABC lineup premiered last week, with a big promo push and a pretty terrible situation. Airing in "cursed" Tuesday at 10 slot behind Blackish, there weren't very many signs that this show would be a noticeable improvement on Emergence. In the end, it managed to grow from an above-average Blackish with a strong 0.7 debut. It's not a strong number at first glance, but the fact that it was able to rate higher than New Amsterdam and FBI: Most Wanted with a far lower lead-in was impressive. I have my reservations about it, mainly that it's not going to have the same amount of promo as it had leading into the premiere and that Blackish will likely dip to its usual low 0.5. However, with every new show on ABC looking very weak and pulling cancel-worthy numbers, it's not going to take much for For Life to look renewable. I feel confident enough in that 0.7 debut to at least start it as LEANS RENEWAL. The next few weeks will be very telling, so don't be surprised to see it moved very quickly.
