    Wondering if anyone has heard about cancelled shows? Specifically Almost Human?

    I hope not, but what I am reading online is that it's a maybe. However, I am just doing a general google and not sure where to go for specifics if they are out there.

    This web site tries to predict which shows may be cancelled TV by the Numbers

    Almost Human is listed as "more likely to be cancelled than renewed by May, 2014."
    This site is not always right though.

    Aw,man. I like Almost Human.

    I'll watch Intelligence until it gets canceled or the two leads start boinking, whichever comes first.

    They actually have two different methodologies. The Renew/Cancel Index is the one you referred to, and they have a "Bubble Watch" column which uses a different prediction method, but it also is predicting Almost Human will be canceled.

    Wasn't Fringe always/usually listed in the "more likely to be canceled" column, though? I feel like Almost Human might do ok in a Friday slot...

    I think that Almost Human is going to be saved by the extra 3 hours in the fall made available by The X Factor not coming back. (It can air Thursday nights at 8 until American Idol returns in January 2015.)

    I've really been enjoying Almost Human. I was a bit slow to embrace it but it has grown on me. Mom is my favorite new sitcom. I hope it doesn't get cancelled. Nashville has become soapy but still, I enjoy the local flavor.

    Nashville is a weird case. Most are predicting its cancellation, but it's a series that the head of ABC called out specifically during the TCA tour as being one that he is more excited about coming back... so I don't know. It is rather expensive to make, given that it is heavily filmed on location.

    I've learned not to get too entrenched in any TV show anymore. Chances are if it's one I like, it's more likely to get canceled. I only wish that if they are going to cancel a show, let us know immediately after the decsion has been made so I won't waste my time watching the remaining episodes of a storyline that will end up going unresolved.

    There are eight shows that I watch on the looking not so good list, but only a few that I'd be mildly disappointed about getting canceled.

    I really hope they don't cancel Almost Human. The story arc is good. They had a couple of shaky episodes early on. Especially the episode where the nerd guy had bad gas (horrible) but it got stronger as the season went on and found it's footing.

    They just need to get some continuity with the episode order; that's been frustrating.

    Totally agree. The city is behind a wall? Took 9 episodes to just throw that in? :)

    I don't worry about newer stuff being canceled. I just assume it will be and am pleasantly surprised when it isn't. So if I enjoy a show, I generally stick with it, no matter what the ratings are. Why should "ratings" determine what I like to watch or not? It's longer shows that I've been vested in for years that I get upset about being canceled. Something like Fringe, was always on the bubble, and as it got through the second season and was on the bubble, I got upset. Luckily it last a couple of more seasons more than it should have.

    The one show in recent memory that got canceled after one season that REALLY bugged me was Terriers.
