Rebel: I'm shocked to be saying this, but Rebel has actually managed to do respectably thus far. It's held up quite well post-premiere, only shedding four hundredths from its premiere. 0.44 isn't anything to be thrilled about, but it was somehow not that far behind ABC's other 10 PM shows, tying Big Sky and only a few hundredths below The Rookie and The Good Doctor. ABC seems to like the show, continuing to promote it quite heavily. The showrunner of Grey's Anatomy and Station 19 is the creator and writer of Rebel, so a renewal may also be used to keep her happy. It's hard for me to really say whether they'll renew Rebel or not, since here's arguments both for and against it, but as of now it seems mildly favored for at least one more run. It LEANS RENEWAL.

The Conners: After a few strong weeks, back down The Conners went, hitting a brand-new low for its latest episode against The Masked Singer. I was preparing to upgrade it after those solid 0.6s, but I'm abandoning those plans and keeping it at LEANS RENEWAL. I still have a hard time imagining ABC canceling their #2 comedy, which they promote so very often, but it is possible if they can't make the financials work.

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