What Would You Do?: Despite its 0.4 premiere not looking terribly impressive upon first glance, it doubled its horrible Blackish repeat lead-in, and rose to a 0.5 in the second half. A 0.5 at 10:30 is solid for any show at 10 PM on ABC, but particularly one so cheap with such little lead-in support. This isn't a priority show for ABC, considering how often it was delayed by ABC (per host John Quiñones' Twitter page), but it's easy to produce and can be plugged in any slot on the schedule. It's hard to imagine ABC canceling it if it can stay in the 0.3-0.5 range. It's a LIKELY RENEWAL.

Tough As Nails: The newest show on broadcast TV got off to a surprisingly solid start this week with a 0.6 premiere, holding at that number for both hours it was airing. That shows that, at least on premiere night, there was genuine interest in sampling the show, and those watching liked it enough to continue watching throughout the two hours. New shows tend to drop as they go along, though, so I'm being cautious. Game On started on this level and went as low as 0.4, which CBS didn't seem terribly satisfied with. As of now, I think this will be the new show CBS premieres from this summer if they want to pick one of them, as long as it can stay around 0.6. It LEANS RENEWAL until there's more data.

What do you think of my predictions? What are your predictions? Let me know in the comments and vote in the polls of the week!
