- INSIDER conducted a survey to find out what new TV shows viewers think will get canceled.
- Using the data, we collected a list of 21 shows that people believe will be canceled.
- A lot of people agreed that “The Conners,” “The Alec Baldwin Show,” and “Dancing With the Stars: Juniors” will get the axe.
We’re nearing the end of the fall TV season, and we can’t help but wonder what shows are going to get canceled.
And while we may not know those will be until 2019, viewers are feeling the tension. INSIDER was interested in the new shows that viewers are worried about, and conducted a survey to find out what new network TV shows people think are in danger of getting the axe.
We collected a list of the shows people think will get canceled and included the percentage of participants who listed that show, along with the show’s IMDB description.
Some shows people can agree are at risk of cancellation include “The Alec Baldwin Show,” “The Conners,” and “Dancing With the Stars: Juniors.”
SurveyMonkey Audience polls from a national sample balanced by census data of age and gender. Respondents are incentivized to complete surveys through charitable contributions. Generally speaking, digital polling tends to skew toward people with access to the internet. SurveyMonkey Audience doesn’t try to weight its sample based on race or income. Total 1,217 respondents, margin of error 3% with 95% confidence level, poll ran Nov. 16 to 17.
Here are the shows that people think are most in danger of being canceled:
“The Alec Baldwin Show” — ABC
Of those surveyed, 29.87% believe this talk show will be canceled. In November, ABC moved the show from the Sunday night line-up to Saturdays, which isn’t good news for its longevity.
IMDB description: Weekly talk show hosted by actor Alec Baldwin.
“The Conners” — ABC
Of the people surveyed, 28.1% think that the “Roseanne” spin-off is doomed. While “The Conners” has steady ratings, it’s only drawing in half the audience that the revival, which aired earlier this year, did. This could mean that it won’t get picked up for another season, but the ratings are steady enough that it could stick around. Our guess? It was always intended as a one-season show, and will end with its first season in 2019.
IMDB description: Follow-up to the comedy series Roseanne (1988), centering on the family members of the matriarch after her sudden death.
“Dancing With the Stars: Juniors” — ABC
Of those who were surveyed, 25.44% believe this show will get canceled. And that’s fair: It doesn’t capture the magic of the popular reality competition series. And historically, kid spin-offs of popular reality shows do not perform well. Remember “American Juniors?” You probably don’t, because it didn’t last long.
IMDB description: A spin-off of “Dancing With the Stars” pairing celebrity kids with professional junior ballroom dancers to perform choreographed routines, which are judged by a panel that includes renowned ballroom experts.
