Ratings Roundup for the Week of February 21, 2021

Any idea on whether the Goldbergs will be renewed? It'll be interesting to see how the storylines will be if they get a new season with Adam graduating from high school in this season. And what do you think the odds will be for FBI: Most Wanted and the Good Doctor getting renewed?

From a ratings stand-point, The Goldbergs should be renewed. its regularly one of the highest, if not the highest-rated comedies on the network. If it's cancelled it will be because the production wants to end it, not from any sort of audience losses. 

The Good Doctor will probably be renewed, but it wouldn't surprise me if it's also announced the fifth season will be its last. Its numbers have been in steady decline for the last two seasons (more than can be accounted for by mere attrition). 

FBI Most Wanted should be safe. CBS has a number of much lower-rated shows that would go first, and every network likes the idea of franchise programming.

Hawaii Five-0 rebootis probably my all-time favorite police procedural tv show. The cast was true gold and the story had just a perfect balance of personal drama. 

MacGyver is fun, but the longer I watch it the most I get fed up with the inner struggles of the main character. Too much drama. 

Both Seal Team and S.W.A.T. delved too deep into social issues for me, it just doesn't give me the fun and relaxing time I want from the show. And from what I have seen around people have similar feelings. If I had to bet I would say S.W.A.T. will be the first to go. But these networks surprised me before, you can never be sure. 

If any other scripted drama goes, it will be SWAT. As I said in the article, its viewer numbers are half of NCIS: NOLA. Granted NOLA probably lost an internal budget war with the NCIS productions more than the network wanting the cancel the show, but if the network plans to drop another veteran show, SWAT will be the one to go.

I'm curious to see if The Equalizer and MacGyver will survive past their current seasons. Fans of originals don't like the reboots, yet they manage to keep better ratings than similar standalone series. 

I loved the rebooted Hawaii Five-0 (and I'm old enough to have watched some of the original series as well) Lenkov and his team just hit gold with that cast and it worked. I watched and really enjoyed the original RDA MacGyver and I gave the reboot a shot based on how well Five-0 worked, but the spark was gone. Maybe because the original was not an ensemble cast show? Certainly, the fact that Justin Hires' character is not only annoying but unnecessary was part of it. I stopped watching by season 3. The new version of Magnum PI has some of the same issues. The production turned a solo act into an ensemble and the whole thing with Higgins now his partner and the forced sexual tension is just  ... meh. With that said, both MacGyver and Magnum will probably be renewed. SEAL Team and SWAT have much lower ratings and would go first if the network wanted to lose another veteran show. 

As for The Equalizer, so far it is a ratings winner for the network, garnering numbers equal to the original NCIS, so it's not going anywhere unless its numbers just fall off a cliff in the next couple of weeks.
