Good Girls: It's hard to look at the 0.44 average that Good Girls has thus far and argue that that's strong, but I certainly don't think it's very weak considering the circumstances. NBC's new Sunday  lineup is a disaster (to put it lightly), and Good Girls' recent 0.5s in the notably harsh 10 PM slot is actually higher than what Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist is doing at 9. Growing from your lead-in isn't very easy, but Good Girls is doing it on a pretty regular basis. NBC will probably want some sort of consistency on the Sunday lineup next year, and Good Girls is the easy pick for that. It's a heavily serialized show in its third season with a pretty big Netflix deal, and cancelling it without a proper ending (and in a season shortened by the COVID-19 outbreak, no less) doesn't seem like a strong financial decision. It's the argument I've made to justify a renewal last year and all year this year, but I really have a hard time seeing NBC cancelling this one. There's too much upside to renewing it. I'm upgrading it to a LIKELY RENEWAL.
