Cancellation Watch Scorecard: Games of Thrones Enters at the Top of the Rankings

For the first time since I have been doing the Scorecard, another show has moved ahead of The Walking Dead in the rankings. HBO’s Game of Thrones returned for its eighth and final season on Sunday and posted a massive 5.0 rating based on same day viewing for the 18-49 demographic. That’s much better than the 1.9 rating… Read More »

Cancellation Watch Scorecard: Happy! Slips, Cloak and Dagger Enters Low in the Rankings

Syfy’s hard-boiled fantasy Happy! continues to slip in the rankings as that show’s numbers have been down notably in its second season. It dropped four slots this week from Number 28 to Number 32 and could definitely use a Call to Action from fans on the social networks. Freeform’s Marvel superhero series Cloak and Dagger returned last week… Read More »

Cancellation Watch Scorecard: No Happy Landings in the Rankings for Happy!

Syfy’s hard-boiled fantasy Happy! returned for its second season last week with numbers down notably from its first year which results in the show starting off pretty low in the Scorecard. It opens at the Number 28 slot which is just above Nightflyers–already cancelled by Syfy–and I consider it a Call to Action show. FX’s comedy mockumentary What… Read More »

Cancellation Watch Scorecard: American Gods Continues to Slip in the Rankings

Starz’s American Gods slipped yet again in the rankings as it dropped from the Number 27 slot to Number 30. That show has already been renewed for a third season, but the poor viewership in its second year suggests that will be its last. AMC’s Into the Badlands entered the Scorecard at the Number 22 slot based on… Read More »

Cancellation Watch Scorecard: Roswell New Mexico Slips in the Rankings

The CW’s reboot series Roswell New Mexico slipped four slots in the rankings this past week from Number 11 to Number 15. That show has had the disadvantage of running solo while The Flash was on break a few weeks which has caused its numbers to slip, and it has not rebounded yet. That one may be making… Read More »

Cancellation Watch Scorecard: American Gods Enters Lower in the Rankings

Starz’s American Gods returned for its second season this past Sunday and saw its ratings drop off notably after a two year absence. That causes it to enter the Scorecard at the Number 22 slot which is much lower than where it typically ranked in its first year. It is only one slot below already renewed Outlander (which airs… Read More »

Cancellation Watch Scorecard: The Passage, Deadly Class, and More Slip in the Rankings

Several shows slipped in the rankings this week due to declining ratings. FOX’s The Passage slipped two slots to Number 16 after its ratings dropped last week. Syfy’s Deadly Class slipped one slot to Number 13 as that show has been trending down for several weeks. The CW’s Roswell New Mexico dropped three slots to Number 14 after… Read More »

Cancellation Watch Scorecard: Siren Is Still Sinking in the Rankings

Freeform’s paranormal drama Siren has seen its ratings slip since its second season premiere and that show dropped yet another rung in the Scorecard this week to Number 17.  That puts it barely in the upper half of the rankings and this one could definitely benefit from a Call to Action by fans on the social networks.  Improving… Read More »

Cancellation Watch Scorecard: Siren Continues to Slip in the Rankings

The numbers for Freeform’s Siren have been down the last couple of weeks and that show has seen its ranking slip in the Scorecard.  It dropped three places this week from Number 13 to Number 16.  It is still in the upper half of the Scorecard, but needs to level out if it wants to stay afloat for a… Read More »

Cancellation Watch Scorecard Scorecard: Project Blue Book Slips But It’s Still Flying

The History Channel’s UFO-investigation series Project Blue Book slipped in the rankings this week (from Number 16 to Number 20), but there is no need to worry about that one because it has already been renewed for a second season.  It’s ratings slipped some the last couple of weeks leading to the drop in the rankings, but it… Read More »

Cancellation Watch Scorecard: Siren Slips in the Rankings, But It Is Still Above Water

Freeform’s Siren slipped three slots in the rankings in its second week, dropping from Number 8 to Number 11. But shows tend to have more volatility in their first few weeks on the Scorecard because minor changes can have a bigger impact when the sample size of episodes is small. The same thing occurred for The CW’s Roswell… Read More »

Cancellation Watch Scorecard: Siren Enters in the Top 10, Deadly Class and The Passage Slip

Freeform’s fantasy series Siren returned for its second season last week and posted a slight gain to its year-over-year ratings which finds the show entering the Scorecard in the Top 10 at the Number 8 slot. Also debuting last week was Syfy’s The Magicians which was down from last year, finding it at a lower than usual rank… Read More »

Cancellation Watch Scorecard: Deadly Class and The Passage Start in the Top 10

Syfy’s assassin school series Deadly Class and FOX’s pre-apocalypse series The Passage had their debuts last week and both pulled good numbers for for their first outings (more on the ratings results at this link).  That finds them entering the rankings in the Top 10 with the former in the Top 5.  Deadly Class starts out at the… Read More »

Cancellation Watch Scorecard: The Orville Drops in the Rankings

FOX’s space dramedy The Orville took a drop in the rankings this week falling six slots from Number 10 to Number 16. That was expected, though, because its rank last week was skewed by its Sunday night debut numbers which received a boost from NFL football. But since moving to its regular Thursday night timeslot, the show has… Read More »

Cancellation Watch Scorecard: Counterpart Lands at the Bottom of the Rankings

The Cancellation Watch Scorecard is back from its Winter hiatus as the sci fi and fantasy entries on the schedule start to make their returns as well. Because Starz’s Counterpart got off to a late Fall start, I never worked it into the rankings during the first half of the season. But now that the rankings are back,… Read More »
