Looks like we have another cancellation...
ABC has pulled The Mayor off the schedule, effective immediately. Repeats of Modern Family will fill its spot for now.
The Mayor was ABC's lowest-rated comedy with an average 0.8 18-49 rating, compared to the next-lowest Fresh Off the Boat which averages about 1.1. So the writing was on the wall.
I never even heard of the show.
I looked, it never found an audience. It may not have been a bad show but it did not click with viewers.
Comedy is difficult.
ABC has picked up The Good Doctor for season #2. No surprise there. It's the second highest rated show on ABC (behind Grey's Anatomy), and even pulls in more total viewers than Dancing with the Stars.
It’s the doctor show we needed, along with The Resident.
We're about a month away from the broadcast networks "upfront" presentations, where they will announce their schedules for next season. I thought now would be a good time to see where all the shows stand. First up, ABC.
The Good Doctor
Once Upon a Time
Ten Days in the Valley
Fates still up in the air (my prediction in parentheses):
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D (old, expensive and low rated, but I think it gets one more season)
Alex Inc (still a bit early to tell, but I'm leaning toward renewal)
American Housewife (good ratings, will be back)
black-ish (good ratings, will be back)
The Crossing (off to a decent start, leaning toward renewal)
Deception (low rated new show, probably canceled)
Designated Survivor (ratings are down, but it should get another season)
Fresh Off the Boat (good ratings, should be back)
For the People (low rated new show, likely canceled)
Grey's Anatomy (good ratings, a sure thing)
How to Get Away with Murder (good ratings, should be back)
Kevin (Probably) Saves the World (low rated new show, likely cancel)
Marvel's Inhumans (very low rated new show, it's a goner)
Speechless (good ratings, it should be back)
Splitting Up Together (still early, but ratings have been good so it should get picked up)
Station 19 (good ratings so far, should be back)
