PRO: The Anna Faris-Allison Janney two-hander remains CBS’ No. 3 sitcom, behind the soon-to-conclude Big Bang Theory and sophomore spinoff Young Sheldon.
CON: Faris and Janney will see their current contracts expire at season’s end and, per Deadline, the pair are seeking “significant” salary bumps — and the figure Warner Bros. is currently offering them is reportedly nowhere near what the actresses want.
PRO: Despite the series’ modest ratings (and we’re being generous), Fox recently ordered two additional episodes, bringing its Season 2 total to 15.
CON: First Clayne Crawford is fired. Then Damon Wayans threatens to quit. In the words of Mary J. Blige, Fox has to be so tired, so tired of the drama.
PRO: Just as we’ve seen with ABC’s unflagging commitment to the death-defying Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Fox may be relucant to cancel a Marvel-branded show.
CON: The network may be less reluctant if the show’s numbers keep dropping; it’s currently Fox’s lowest-rated drama series (recent episodes have flirted with a 0.6 demo rating).
PRO: We thought this guilty pleasure was DOA last season and then The CW went and renewed it!
CON: Its most recent episode sank to a series-low 557K viewers, so producers may want to begin prepping for a series finale.
DANCING WITH THE STARS
PRO: Yes, Season 27 was a dumpster fire, but would ABC really cancel a show that still garners a 1.0+ demo rating?
