The Rookie: After a weak start to the season that looked like it may seal the show's fate, The Rookie has turned things around. Sure, its recent ratings boost is mainly due to its much larger American Idol lead-in, but a 0.5 is a 0.5 at the end of the day. Even 0.4, which it received for its return a week ago, is more than enough for a 10 PM show to be renewed at this point, when 0.3s are becoming the 10 o'clock norm. On top of the improved ratings, The Rookie also seems to be a profitable venture for ABC, as they have a spinoff of the show in development. With Queens, A Million Little Things, Big Sky and the already-canceled Promised Land all looking vulnerable due to weak ratings, there is no reason to expect that The Rookie is in danger, and it is a LIKELY RENEWAL.
