1. The Rookie

Number of seasons: 1

Network: ABC

Why it’s in danger: ABC just isn’t having much luck with its new TV shows this season. This is third new show to make it to the list (although I will also admit that Single Parents is on rocky ground but didn’t make the list). Like Whiskey Cavalier, it’s quite surprising to find the show on the list. After all, who doesn’t love Nathan Fillion?

Well, things just haven’t worked out for the series. Debuting in the fall, it looked good but just didn’t keep the viewers tuned in. It sits in the bottom half of all ABC TV shows, between black-ish and How to Get Away with Murder.

Whether it’s the storytelling, character development, or just a bad night, we won’t really know for sure. After all, the writing isn’t terrible and the show has certainly given the diverse lead cast some excellent material. It looks like this is just a casualty of far too much on TV right now.

In fact, I and other writers at Hidden Remote think The Rookie deserves another season. I would love to see more from the writers.

Chances of renewal: This is one that I’m on the fence with. It will depend on the cost of production, but with a star as big as Fillion, we could see the show canceled in May 2019.
