    Wow. KK might be the first show cancelled by the CW in 2 years. Despite the additional scripts.

    W&G and Indebted need to be benched and NBC should bring back Nightline, so some other true crime news show leading into or out from SVU.

      I do not think too many people know who, or what, Katy Keene is unlike Archie, which is more well known despite the CW turning it into some bizarre, dark series.

      I believe Will and Grace is in their final season.

      I think you meant “Dateline”, not “Nightline”, as that is an ABC new show on late nights.

    • Russell

      I think Katy Keene will still be renewed because the CW operates on a different model than the Big 4 nets. Remember they renewed both Dynasty and In the Dark which got multiple 0.1s. I do think they’ll move KK to Fridays and swap it with Charmed.

    It’s unusual to see NBC fourth midweek.

    I can’t believe KK is doing so bad. It’s not that bad!

    I guess it’s no good when NBC’s daytime soap Days Of Our Lives is getting more viewers than some of their primetime comedies.

    • DC

      That is amusing… one has to wonder if NBC would get better ratings with some sort of one hour “extra episode” of DOOL in the 9pm hour rather than what they are doing (probably would get more “viewers”, but, less demo 18-49, which is all that ‘matters’).

  5. Monzo

    The Unicorn is fighting for season 2. When it premiered I was sure it won’t survive it’s first year, but now I’m not so sure. I can’t see Man With A Plan doing much better when it’s going to return in April.

  6. Jonathan

    Lucy Hale’s agent is having a great start to 2020.

    I wonder if Katy Keene will be like Crazy Ex and Jane, where it goes on for years despite no one watching. They don’t have Netflix paying the bills anymore, but vanity for All Access and HBO Max might keep some flops going longer than they should.

  7. George

    Crazy Ex and Jane got on for years because awards
