ABC Cheat Sheet: What Will Be Renewed?

at .  Updated at . Comments

Now that we are well the 2017-2018 season, it's time to take a look at how the networks are faring with their new and returning scripted series. 

First up is ABC, who is not having the best start to the season. With most shows down double digits, there is one show that became a surprise hit when it premiered just a few weeks ago. 

That show is The Good Doctor, and it has remained a solid performer ever since it premiered. 

The network does have a lot of scripted shows in its inventory for midseason, so it's difficult to really discount any of the more marginally performing series. 

Have a look at how ABC's scripted offerings stack up below. 

1. Grey's Anatomy - Certain Renewal

Grey's Anatomy - Certain Renewal
Grey's Anatomy Season 14 has been a return to form for the veteran medical drama. It ranks as ABC's highest-rated series in terms of live ratings.

Live + Same Day Ratings: 7.9 million viewers and a 2.1 rating. This is on par with last year's results.

The show still adds 80 percent to its demo tally with 7 days of DVR viewing factored in.

2. The Good Doctor - Certain Renewal

The Good Doctor - Certain Renewal
The Good Doctor has been the first big breakout drama series of the season. When all metrics were added in, the pilot was watched by 33 million viewers. The show was well sampled.

It is averaging 10.9 million viewers and a 2.1 rating.

With DVR factored in, it gains an enormous 105 percent.

It's no wonder the show has already been granted more episodes. The biggest shocker here is that the network has a show rating higher than Grey's Anatomy.

ABC does not own the show, but the ratings will keep it safe.

3. Modern Family - Renewed

Modern Family - Renewed
Modern Family has already been renewed, but that does not mean we can't assess how it's performing.

It is averaging 6.2 million viewers and a 1.8 rating. This is down 15 percent vs. last season.

The show still enjoys gains of 90 percent in Live + 7 ratings.

ABC does not own the show, but they knew the show was still going to be a reliable performer and it made sense financially to give the show a two-season renewal.

4. The Goldbergs - Renewed

The Goldbergs - Renewed
The Goldbergs continues to be a solid addition to ABC's comedy slate, and its ratings are still strong.

Live + SD Ratings: 5.6 million viewers and a 1.5 rating. This is down just over 10 percent vs. last season.

The show benefits from 50 percent gains in live + 7 ratings. ABC has already renewed it for 2018-2019.

5. The Middle - Ending

The Middle - Ending
The Middle is down just marginally in its final season. It is averaging 5.7 million viewers and a 1.4 rating among adults 18-49.

6. American Housewife - Certain Renewal

American Housewife - Certain Renewal
American Housewife has moved to a new time slot and is down marginally in the ratings. 5 million viewers and a 1.4 rating are still strong figures for ABC. The show also catapults over 60 percent with live + 7 factored in. It is safe.
