[UPDATED]: The Winners And Losers Of Fall TV (So Far…)


For the latest winners and losers (and ratings also), check out our TV Ratings update here.


We are two-plus weeks into the new fall season and now have our first official cancellation (Lucky 7). So, who is next on the chopping block? And which shows are worth actually getting attached to?

The listings are courtesy of E! Online.


  1. Sleepy Hollow: Which is already renewed! Despite the show’s crazy premise (Ichabad Crane is time-traveling? Say what now?), this early ratings winner has held its ground, becoming the first official pick up of the season.
  2. The Blacklist: Sure, those ratings from Monday night lead-in The Voice have helped, but the ratings have held strong in week two, dropping only 5 percent in the core 18-49 demo to 12.1 million viewers.
  3. The Crazy Ones: CBS’ Thursday night is cleaning house, thanks in part to the ridiculous ratings this season for Big Bang (20 million!? Maybe they should start tallying who isn’t watching?). Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar are luring in plenty of viewers, even in week two.
  4. Agents of SHIELD. A winner for now, but the next episode could make or break it. Joss Whedon‘s Marvel-inspired new ABC series started off with record-breaking audience, but dipped an alarming 34 percent for week two, despite a cameo by Samuel L. Jackson. We also found it sort of a snooze. Bring it back around, Joss!
  5. Super Fun Night. Again, a winner for right now. The premiere ratings were big, but we have yet to see if anyone will come back for week two.


  1. Lucky 7. Canceled! The first casualty of the fall. But thanks for playing.
  2. Ironside. The drama—a remake of a ’60s-’70s show—premiered Wednesday night as NBC’s lowest drama premiere ever. Stroke of genius: Move Blair Underwood to Blacklist.
  3. Dads. The Seth McFarland laugh-track comedy (just…why?) has dipped in the ratings to 3.7 million up against NCIS and The Voice.
  4. NBC’s Thursday night. Sean Saves the WorldMichael J. Fox and Welcome to the Family simply haven’t pulled in the ratings NBC was hoping for on Thursday nights.
  5. Hostages. Dipped to 6 million viewers, making it the night’s least watched show on the big four networks, despite critical support and a 73% approval rating in our poll.
