The CW hasn't even premiered half of its schedule yet, but it has already made its renewal announcements for next season. No surprise that Walker was renewed, it also gained a couple of extra episodes for the current season. The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, In The Dark, Superman & Lois (which also received a couple of extra episodes ordered for this season), Dynasty, and Roswell, New Mexico were all renewed in addition to the scripted shows currently airing.

ABC had a fairly quiet week last week. Big Sky and For Life were both even with the previous week's numbers. Big Sky should be renewed, For Life squeaked a renewal last season, not sure it will manage it again. Call Your Mother was also even, but low. Its chances for renewal are slim. Black-ish and Mixed-ish both lost a tenth.

CBS ran a schedule of mostly repeats last week. MacGyver and Blue Bloods were steady with their last new episodes a couple of weeks ago. Magnum PI lost a tenth. All three are in no danger and should be easy renewals for the network.  The Unicorn gained a tenth but its renewal chances are fading quickly.

NBC had a middling week last week. Chicago Med and Fire both gained a tenth, Chicago PD lost a tenth. Mr Mayor lost a tenth as well, but should still earn a renewal. The Blacklist lost a tenth after its renewal news. Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist dropped a tenth as well.

FOX saw losses for most of its shows last week. 9-1-1 and 9-1-1 Lone Star both lost two tenths. The Resident lost a tenth. Call Me Kat and Last Man Standing were steady, while Prodigal Son managed to gain back the tenth it lost the previous week. The Masked Dancer and Name That Tune were also each down a tenth, but since they are game shows, and cheap to produce, both will likely be renewed.

Even if the networks who aren't The CW haven't made any official announcements they are weighing the renewal odds for new and veteran shows, and some decisions have likely already been made. How are your favorites doing this season?

I suspect there was something else going on with Deputy. The numbers were never that bad (certain not Excerist levels of bad and that got renewed at least once).

The nice thing about being a fan of a CW show, you're pretty much guaranteed several seasons worth of episodes. LOL! Of the others on your list, the only in any real danger is Prodigal Son. It's the lowest-rated scripted drama on the network, but like The CW, FOX tends to hold on to shows so, unless its number fall off a cliff in the next few weeks, it will likely be renewed. 

I'll stick with Walker for another couple of weeks and see if it improves, but if they don't get off this broken record that Walker is basically to blame for everything that is wrong with his family, I may give up.
