    Really shocked about Carol's Second Act getting a backorder. It's just not funny.

    I guess it says something about their lack of alternatives and fear of alienating their star.

    Or the fact that it gets decent-for-2019 ratings? Are we still pretending that's not a factor here?

    I watched a couple of episodes of All Rise and I have another 3 or so recorded.

    I am still on the fence with this one...

    I would have bet Carol's Second Act would have been axed pretty quickly. It was beyond awful. I like The Unicorn somewhat, and have no interest in the other two.

    As bad as Carol's Second Act is, it does decently well in the ratings (everything else being relative). It's not lighting the world on fire, but it seems to hold a solid amount of Mom's lead-in numbers and it's the most-watched show in its time slot, except for football.

    Ratings? Pshaw. All that matters is whether we think it was good!

    ;):D

    I just decided this week to cancel All Rise and stick with Bluff. Guess I'll have to go the other way. :(

    I enjoyed the plot of the first couple of episodes. Since then as soon as the storyline is established I've tuned out. This is the second Memphis based show to fail.

    The other one being Memphis Beat? That lasted 2 seasons---hard to really count that as failure, IMO.

    I find Carol's Second Act mildly amusing although the laugh track is annoying since there are no jokes on there that are LOL funny. The Unicorn I thought was bad and didn't make it through the first episode.

    I don't consider two ten-episode summer filler runs as hits. YMOV

    There is quite a bit of space between "hit" and "failure".

    I'm a bit surprised on Evil, from what I'd read the ratings haven't been all that great, so for them to have actually renewed it for a second season seems a bit premature.

    For one thing, CBS owns Evil's production company so they can control costs. Also, I'm not sure the renewal means much more than the extra episodes for the sitcoms if Evil is being produced in 13-episode short seasons. Worst case they could air season two in the summer.

    Cloak and Dagger cancelled.

    Farewell, Marvel's Cloak and Dagger Ends After 2 Seasons

    Honestly not that surprised. Disney seems intent on getting all the Marvel stuff onto Disney+. OK, maybe a little surprised because Freeform is a Disney properly. And the show wasn't that bad.

    My guess is about 12 dollars and 43 cents per episode, and with economies of scale ...

    That's funny - I did the exact opposite. The All Rise pilot was pretty bad, but it has gotten better with each episode and I like the supporting cast. Bluff just didn't do it for me.
