Holey Moley: After a few weeks at 0.5, I've decided that it's time to take a second look at my prediction for Holey Moley. It's being consistently matched or even beaten by 10 PM show To Tell the Truth, despite a much better timeslot. This is about the point where the show began falling apart last season, as well, but this time, it doesn't even have football preemptions to blame it on. I still don't think 0.5 is a horrible rating given the state of TV at the moment, but it's not enough to remain a certain renewal given the plum timeslot. I'm downgrading it to LIKELY RENEWAL.

Being Reuben: Last week, The CW premiered a new show, not that anyone would know. Being Reuben became the lowest-rated premiere for any show on broadcast TV in history, with a horrific 0.0 for both episodes. The CW pulled Taskmaster last week after it drew a 0.1, there's no way that they'll bring Being Reuben back for another season with 0.0s. It's a CERTAIN CANCELLATION.

Bulletproof: After The CW actually got somewhat-ruthless last week and pulled something, it felt like a good time to reevaluate my prediction for Bulletproof, which had plenty of low results for its most recent season. In its second season, Bulletproof managed just a 0.07 average, hitting a 0.0 on one occasion. If The CW had to fund the show itself, it would probably be a pretty easy cancellation (a la Katy Keene), but since it's an acquired program, it could return. Just to be safe, since CW has now shown that they're willing to cancel shows that are cheap and acquired, I'm downgrading it to LEANS RENEWAL.

Tough As Nails: This week, CBS announced that freshman reality series Tough As Nails would be back for a second season. Though its ratings weren't that impressive, this was a correct prediction for me. With Tough As Nails coming back, my likely cancellation prediction for Game On! is even more solidified, as I doubt CBS needs both of them and Tough As Nails seemed like the better choice for renewal.

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 polls of the week!
