Nurses: The Canadian medical import started off with a thud on Monday, drawing a 0.4 for its debut behind The Voice. The Voice is no monster anymore, drawing just a 0.7 on Monday, but the plentifully-promoted Nurses still has no excuse for a 0.4 premiere. At those numbers, it has absolutely nowhere to fall before it reaches cancelable numbers, even if it is pretty cheap. It's just filler, and NBC doesn't need to bring it bar, nor do they really have the room for it. I'm waiting for its post-This Is Us performance for a more serious call, but for now it starts at an unpromising LEANS CANCELLATION.

Transplant: Speaking of cheap Canadian imports, Transplant ended its run this week. The show drew a 0.4, down a notch from its previous episode but in-line with its seasonal average. Despite the lower atings, I do still think NBC will bring it back. It was a pretty steady performer and drew some 0.5s and even 0.6 in some weeks, which isn't much worse than most 10 PM shows. With it being so cheap, it's probably got a stronger chance at a renewal than a show that NBC would have to produce all on its own that has the same ratings. It won't be a priortity in season two, but it should get there. It LEANS RENEWAL.
