The 2017-18 TV season saw a lot of good TV shows and some not too interesting ones. The ratings of some of these shows went down and there were a handful of new series that drew even above-average ratings.
However, a handful of new series were renewed by TV networks. Here are TV shows from the 2017-2018 season that have had a terrible year.
“The Good Doctor”
This show which came from the stables of ABC was a hit, alongside “Station 19” and “Splitting Up Together” which put up decent numbers late in the season. But it was not a great year for ABC, which had more misfires than any other network and also cancelled its top-rated series, “Roseanne.”
The lone undecided show is “Take Two,” which premieres June 21.
The network whiffed with its other new comedies, however, canceling “9JKL,” “Me, Myself & I” and “Living Biblically,” along with drama “Wisdom of the Crowd” saw the network have loads of terrible shows with bad ratings.
The CW had shows like “Black Lightning” and “Supernatural” which tied for the second-highest rating. “Dynasty”, survived low on-air ratings by making a profit overseas. “Valor” and “Life Sentence,” which are the season’s lowest-rated show, also fizzled out.
The network is staying with home-grown shows for the time being such as the drama “9-1-1” was the network’s No. 2 show in same-day ratings. Shows like “The Gifted,” “The Orville” and “The Resident” however had bad ratings and were all at or slightly above the network average.
“Ghosted” is airing its remaining episodes over the summer, and FOX says it will make a decision on the show when its run ends.
“Will & Grace”
Of the shows still undecided, “Champions” seems the least likely to return. “Reverie” has been fairly steady but also fairly low in the early summer, and “Law & Order True Crime” is on the “Curb Your Enthusiasm” plan.
