ABC Cheat Sheet: What Will Be Canceled?

at .  Updated at . Comments

ABC has some tough decisions ahead. 

With just a handful of shows renewed for additional seasons, negotiations are underway to keep Once Upon a Time and Modern Family around. 

Modern Family is the number one series on the network, so ABC will wheel and deal to keep it on the air. Once Upon a Time has less leverage, with several stars poised to leave and ratings crumbling. 

While shows like Secrets & Lies and Notorious are toast, Quantico has a glimmer of hope because ABC loves it. 

Have a look below at our predictions for how ABC will play out its renewals. 

If you want to see how the other networks are stacking up, we have separate posts for The CW, Fox, NBC and CBS.

 

 

1. Modern Family - Certain Renewal

Modern Family - Certain Renewal
Modern Family continues to be ABC's top show in the 18-49 demo. Season 8 is currently averaging 7.1 million viewers and a 2.2 rating. The numbers are marginally down from last season, but the series is one of the most timeshifted shows on television.

2. Grey's Anatomy - Renewed

Grey's Anatomy - Renewed
Grey's is on par with Season 12. The show is averaging 8.1 million viewers and a 2.2 rating. As always, the show gets a huge bump in delayed viewing.

3. The Goldbergs - Certain Renewal

The Goldbergs - Certain Renewal
The Goldbergs has eased off ever so slightly this year, but it continues to be one of ABC's top shows, currently averaging 6.2 million viewers and a 1.8 rating. With a spin-off in the works, it is not going anywhere.

4. Speechless - Likely Renewal

Speechless - Likely Renewal
Speechless is ABC's highest rated new series and has thus far stayed relatively steady in the ratings. The show is currently averaging 5.6 million viewers and a 1.6 rating.

5. Black-ish - Certain Renewal

Black-ish - Certain Renewal
Black-ish is one of the most stable shows on all of TV. Season 3 is averaging 5.3 million viewers and a 1.6 rating. After the season is over, it will be close to syndication, so you can bank on more episodes.

6. Designated Survivor - Likely Renewal

Designated Survivor - Likely Renewal
Designated Survivor has improved on the numbers Nashville was pulling the slot last year. It is averaging 6.3 million viewers and a 1.4 rating. However, it has been on a downward trend ever since the premiere. The show is one of the biggest gainers in delayed viewing of all the new fall shows.
