There just isn’t enough room in our DVR’s to watch absolutely everything on TV these days, and with the recent debuts of many new Fall TV shows this month, some of them failed to impress.
The bittersweet truth is that many of these shows won’t make it a full season with such low viewership and could be in danger of cancellation.
So which shows in the new fall lineup are walking the plank towards being nixed? The TV experts at Yahoo! predicted what shows could be in danger this season based on their low ratings.
The Mob Doctor — This Fox drama about a doctor who gets in deep with the mob debuted to a low 5.1 million viewers last week and fell even further to 4 million this week.
Animal Practice — Despite its Olympic preview boost, this new NBC comedy featuring a monkey as one its primary leads couldn’t hold on to viewers in the normal timeslot this week. Only 5.2 million tuned in to this week’s new episode.
Guys With Kids — Even cute babies won’t seem to be able to help this new NBC sitcom out. Only 4.8 million tuned in to see what these guys with kids were up to.
The Neighbors — With a good lead-in boost from Emmy-winning best comedy Modern Family, The Neighbors debuted with a so-so 9 million viewers. However, only 60% were from Modern Family viewers, and next week this alien suburb moves to an 8:30 timeslot and might lose even more viewers.
Partners — This CBS comedy about two best friends – one straight; one gay — debuted to only 6.5 million viewers and placed last in the lineup of Monday night comedies. With a forced laugh-track and cheesy jokes, this show is on a shaky path.
