Duncanville: One of the lowest-rated scripted programs on all of broadcast, Duncanville's scheduling this season has made clear that Fox sees it as little other than an afterthought. Aired first on Sundays at 7:30, then in hour-long blocks at 9 (after repeats) before ultimately being aired for two weeks at 9 PM as the single half-hour original program in the Fox Sunday lineup, Fox does not seem to care at all how the show performs this season. Being an animated series (which notoriously take longer to produce than live-action series), it likely would have needed to be renewed by now in order to make it to the air by next year - the third season renewal came in April 2021. No such renewal has been issued, another sign that this show is not long for this world - not on Fox, at least. Duncanville is a CERTAIN CANCELLATION.

Holey Moley: It has become one of ABC's summer staples, even with ratings best described as "resoundingly mediocre." That mediocrity has continued this summer with a 0.4 average at 8 PM. That's not terribly impressive, but at this point, it's clearly renewable, especially since it has held steady against the summer hit America's Got Talent. It keeps the lights on, which is all ABC can ask of it at this point. Scripted shows, far more expensive than Holey Moley, with lower ratings were renewed and placed on the fall schedule. While ABC has recently canceled some underperforming summer unscripted shows, I don't expect this perennial network favorite to join them. It's a LIKELY RENEWAL.
