The CW Renew/Cancel Part 6: All American: Homecoming Should Still Have a Home on The CW Next Season

The CW Renew/Cancel continues this week with my outlook on All American: Homecoming, as well as a reassessment of one show that seems to be trending in the wrong direction at the wrong time.

All American: Homecoming: In a season of heavy uncertainty, one thing has been reliable and consistent: Monday is The CW's highest-rated night, and they had the All Americans to thank for it. While the original All American is the higher rated of the two (0.13 vs 0.10 for its spinoff), Homecoming ha remained a respectable player by CW standards. In a season where we may see just two additional renewals, any little thing to give a show an edge has to be taken into consideration. In addition to the ratings argument, Homecoming is also one of the only shows on The CW (aside from the aged, ending veterans The Flash and Riverdale) that can boast a Netflix deal. The other show with one? That would be All American, which as of now is the only CW show renewed for next season. There's no telling what, exactly, Nexstar will renew, but Homecoming surely has to be one of the better bets there is, and it continues to LEAN RENEWAL going forward.

The Winchesters: While the path renewal remains clear enough for Homecoming, it's getting much harder to see one for The Winchesters. A spinoff of the long-running Supernatural should conceivably be a banner show for the network. Instead it has been pushed to 9 PM after repeats for itself, far from priority scheduling you'd expect for a program that should conceivably be one of their best hopes for a buzzy success story (it will move back to 8 next week, making the 9 PM airing experiment all the more confusing). In its most recent airing, The Winchesters drew just a 0.04 in the 18-49 demo. That's less than most repeats of reality shows that likely cost about 1/10th as much as The Winchesters. The time slot can't be blamed for all of the show's shortcomings, though, as it was down to 0.06 at 8 PM late last year. In another year, a renewal would still likely come in spite of the underperformance, but with only a few slots remaining, I am extremely doubtful that The Winchesters will be one of them. It's a LIKELY CANCELLATION.

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!
