The Republic of Sarah: This was a weird TV season, so there is a reason that this show premiered in the fall. However, both of The CW's other new series, Walker and Kung Fu, did get to premiere in-season. It seems that they see both of those as far more valuable than The Republic of Sarah, which almost feels as if it's an afterthought. It's rare for The CW to cancel one of their shows, but it does happen. Just ask Lucy Hale, star of two of the most recent CW shows to be canceled in recent years. At this point, I see little benefit to a Republic of Sarah renewal. It just got a 0.0 this week, and while other CW shows have gone that low and got renewed, it's one more in a long line of reasons why I have a hard time seeing it get a second season. When they never seemed to care at all about it, it probably needed to do better than a zero point zero six average to get another season. It LEANS CANCELLATION.

Wellington Paranormal: This comedy made CW history as one of their lowest-rated premieres ever, debuting with just a 0.04. Yet, I still think it's more likely than not to be renewed. Yes, last season The CW pulled Taskmaster from its lineup after its abysmal start. They are known to occasionally decide against picking up addition seasons of acquired shows that have been renewed in their home countries. I don't think this will be the case here, mainly because Wellington has a deal with HBO Max that Taskmaster and other acquired CW shows do not have. This show seems to be a bit important for Warner Brothers and for that reason, I think The CW will put up with the lower ratings. It LEANS RENEWAL.

HouseBroken: This week, it was announced that Fox would be giving HouseBroken a panel at Comic-Con, alongside renewed animated comedies Duncanville, The Simpsons, Family Guy, The Great North and Bob's Burgers. It's a sign of confidence in the show, which they easily could've left out of the lineup if they didn't see any future for it. Its ratings leave much to be desired, but like Duncanville, they seem to be doing everything they can to make it work. While I was doubting my LEANS RENEWAL prediction before, this news gives me a boost of confidence in the show's renewal odds and I'm keeping it as a renewal prediction.

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!
