Which shows won't make it back?
SHOW: "Revolution" (NBC)
IN ITS FAVOR: Some people still remember when NBC was talking about "Revolution" like it was a sensation, rather than a low-rated 8 p.m. drama that has some big-name producers and apparently requires very little promotion to do basically the exact same numbers each and every week. Ratings for "Revolution" aren't great, but the live numbers are steady and the DVR bumps are still big. "Revolution" goes from a 1.4 rating among adults 18-49 to a 2.4 key demo rating with Live+7 growth and the overall audience rises to 7.65 million viewers in the same measurement. And every midseason show that doesn't hit just makes NBC appreciate "Revolution" even more.
AGAINST IT: A year ago, those numbers would get "Revolution" a renewal on NBC, probably. Now? The Wednesday 8 p.m. hour looks like a slot NBC would love to improve, since "SVU" and "Chicago: Whatever" are both doing better. And a lot of the people who were talking about "Revolution" last year aren't so excited anymore.
OUR TOTALLY UNINFORMED GUESS: NBC hates repeats and "Revolution" is very steady. NBC has a bunch of pilots in development and several shows already in place for next year, but unless all of the pilots are awesome, there will still be gaps, even if they're filler gaps at midseason. A 13-episode "Revolution: Endgame" would probably make a lot of sense, if only to have something to air from December to February during a gap in the "Blacklist" schedule, or something.
FINAL VERDICT: Cancelled.
