ABC eased the minds of The Rookie fans last week by announcing the Nathan Fillion-led series would be back for a seventh season. Most ABC shows now know their fates. The only remaining renewal questions for scripted shows on the network are The Conners and Not Dead Yet. The Conners picked up one hundred thousand viewers last week. Not Dead Yet, however, lost one hundred thousand viewers. Abbott Elementary was even.

CBS renewed Elsbeth for a second season. The network also cancelled So Help Me Todd and CSI: Vegas. CSI: Vegas held on by a thread for its season two and three renewals, so a cancellation isn't that surprising. So Help Me Todd, however, pulled decent numbers, meaning the cancellation likely had more to do with upcoming pilots than anything else. The only scripted shows still awaiting news are NCIS: Hawai'i and The Equaliser. With the cancellation of two other hour-long dramas, these two shows should be renewed. Tracker picked up two million viewers after a week off, thanks to some help from an overrun of The Masters.  NCIS celebrated its one thousandth franchise episode on the parent show last week. NCIS picked up nearly one million viewers, while NCIS: Hawai'i was up four hundred thousand viewers.

NBC ran mostly repeats last week. Lopez vs. Lopez followed its trend of having a good first episode, but once again, the audience disappeared for the second. Last week, half a million viewers bailed on the second episode, making it difficult to predict if the show will be renewed. Law & Order and Law & Order: SVU each picked up seven hundred thousand viewers last week. Law & Order: Organised Crime was up four hundred thousand viewers, bolstering its renewal chances.

FOX continued to experiment with its Sunday animated block, pulling Krapopolis for back-to-back episodes of The Great North with little effect. The Cleaning Lady and Alert: Missing Persons Unit had a better week last week, each picking up two hundred thousand viewers. Family Guy wrapped its season, down an average of three hundred thousand viewers from its previous Sunday night timeslot. It will be interesting to see if the network moves the show back to Sunday next season.

CW moved Lovers & Liars to follow the new Patti Stranger series last week. The move helped a little. The reality show picked up a few tens of thousands of viewers. Several imports still beat its numbers, which does not bode well for it continuing. Patti Stranger: The Matchmaker picked up a little under one hundred thousand viewers over its premiere the previous week. All American continued to lead the network's lineup in ratings, even though it lost a few tens of thousands of viewers last week. Walker was down one hundred thousand viewers.

NBC has struggled for years with its half-hour comedies. The rebooted Night Court was the first comedy in years to be called an actual hit. Extended Family is doing okay, but I can't see Lopez vs Lopez getting another season with its whacky viewer numbers.

Night Court should be easiliy renewed. I think it is the highest-rated comedy on NBC. Extended Family I expect to be renewed, but the weirdness that is those back-to-back Lopez vs Lopez episodes makes it hard to judge which one is doing better. 

 

Walker. Yeah, I know CW has other scripted content planned for next season (the rebooted Librarians series among them) Walker pulls the highest audience for a scripted show for the network, so that is in its favor, but the problem is, will the new owners keep any of the previous owner's stuff? 

Fingers crossed that Walker gets renewed, though I won't be surprised if they announce that it won't. I remember reading that the upcoming season of Superman & Lois will be its last,so I'm not expecting much from the new owners.
