    Any word on Abby's?

    With all the shows I reallly liked this season getting the axe, I was hoping this would to, to balance it out a bit :) ( All in fun, for those who like it)..
    Tho ratings have dropped every airing.

    NBC said no decision has been made on Abby’s or the other midseason shows.

    Seth MacFarlane's (parody) Twitter response to The Orville being renewed cannot be linked here.

    I'm very slightly bummed about Whiskey Cavalier. The last 3 episodes or so have been a bit fun. I'm not sure if I just lowered my expectations enough to enjoy it, or if they managed to find a rhythm. Oh well.

    That hurts. None of the other renewals or cancellations were interesting to me in the slightest - this one is sad.

    Of course, perhaps it means Cohen ends up back on TWD...

    Meh, why? Ratings were not great and the show was not great either. Likable actors though. It was Grey's Anatomy for the spy genre. Better the cast gets better roles in better series.

    I like "For the People". It was finally starting to hit it's stride.

    So far, it's the only show that I am sad to see go. I don't watch any of the others.

    See the above, as well as the quality of the show. It all seems right up there with other Fox shows (which I don't watch). Of course, I agree: I'd rather a better show.

    It is was on ABC, not Fox. For my tastes too much worthless flirting and "will (s)he won't (s)he" stuff. I'm sure some liked that stuff. But i did watch most weeks. Nice eye candy I guess.

    The thing behind those shows not being renewed such as AP Bio and Abby's is basically that they still have episodes to burn off and it is probably hard to sell advertisement for those shows if the advertisers know the show is canceled.

    Yep, I know--I just meant that its quality matches anything on Fox and I could see it fitting in there.

    From the article and others, part of the reason being State of California tax credits for television shows. It never occurred to me that California pays/needs to be providing tax credits to television shows.

    Last Man Standing held back until 2020. Speaking of Seth McFarlane, Bob’s Burgers takes over the Sunday 9pm ET tentpole with Family Guy moving to 9:30pm ET (to appease the Disney suits?).

    Seems like this would have happened even if Disney weren't in the equation -- just the result of them wanting to have an established show at 9:00, and adding a new animated show ("Bless the Harts") that's a bit more family-friendly than "Family Guy" (thus, they're putting it at 8:30 instead of 9:30).

    Disney has no involvement with the Fox Network (other than now owning the studio that still produces a lot of the network's programming).

    I get promoting the show set in the King of the Hill universe at 8:30 because it’s new, but they could have just as easily placed Bob’s Burgers at 9:30. It shows a lot of confidence in BB and/or a desire to get the most raunch into the latest time slot. If BB doesn’t outperform Family Guy, or Bless the Harts gets a quick cancellation, they’ll be forced to move Family Guy back to 9.

    If Bless the Harts fails, they have 2 more animated comedies ordered to try out. I don’t think they want to end up like this year when they had to run Family Guy at 9pm & 9:30pm.

    I always feel comedy is comedy. I would watch the rest of those two shows if they were cancelled, but something like Whiskey Cavalier, probably no point.
