And finally, a look at NBC.

Already renewed:

The Good Place
Superstore
This is Us
Will & Grace

Already canceled/ending:

The Brave
Shades of Blue

Fates still up in the air:

AP Bio (low rated new show, it's probably gone)
The Blacklist (ratings are fine, should be back)
Blindspot (heading into a fourth season, good for syndication deals, should be back)
Champions (low rated new show, it's probably gone)
Chicago Fire (good ratings, a sure thing)
Chicago Med (good ratings, a sure thing)
Chicago PD (good ratings, a sure thing)
Good Girls (pretty good ratings, should get a second season)
Great News (low ratings, likely canceled)
Law & Order: SVU (good ratings, should be fine)
Law & Order: True Crime (low rated new show, likely canceled)
Rise (decent ratings, but falling, will be a close call, my guess is renewed)
Taken (very low ratings, likely canceled)
Timeless (got a last minute reprieve last year, won't happen again with its lower ratings)

Rise is terrible. Taken had a good first season, but they fired the cast and started over. The new season is weak. Why was The Brave cancelled?  Seal Team is doing well and they are similar.

I think The Brave was killed by its 2-month hiatus. All but one of the first 9 episodes got a 1.0 rating or higher, and during that time is was among NBC's top 10 shows. But in November it took a 2-month break and when it returned in January it dropped to 0.6 and 0.7 for the next 4 episodes, making it one of NBC's lowest rated shows. It was pulled off the air and no further episodes were ordered, so that was the end.

The ratings for SEAL Team on CBS have been much more steady. Every episode except one has been 0.9 or higher, with about half of them over 1.0. It is the #8 show on CBS (and the #3 drama behind NCIS and Bull).

Actually, now that I take another look at the schedule I don't think the 2-month break was the main factor for The Brave. During those first 9 episodes it had The Voice as a lead-in. When it returned in January, the lead-ins were The Wall and Better Late than Never. So it looks like the early ratings were probably inflated by the much stronger lead-in from The Voice.

It always felt like a copy. I don’t think I even watched most of the episodes.  

What happened to Blindspot? It hasn't
been on for the last 2 weeks.
Wasn't there a show, on The CW this season,
that was also similar?

It will return on April 20. It was off the air for three weeks.

Thank you, is Taken going back to 9?

I don’t know. I stopped watching when I heard it will be cancelled.
