It’s almost Christmas, and the final season of ‘The Sopranos’ is still to come.
That’s a lot of TV to be wrapped up with.
And the network has been hit hard by the ratings slump of ‘Homeland’ and ‘NCIS’ — two shows that were supposed to be a new wave of hit series that would bring renewed viewers into the fold.
But they both dropped so far this season that the series is now likely to be canned.
ABC has already said the show will not be renewed for a sixth season.
And CBS is likely to also be axed after this season, which means that the network will have to look at other options.
“The Americans” season 6 is the last of two on-air primetime dramas.
But the final show on that list is still on the air.
It will be replaced by the highly anticipated and critically acclaimed ‘The Night Shift’ and the upcoming season of the critically acclaimed drama ‘Stranger Things.’
It’s also the last season for CBS’ highly-anticipated and critically-acclaimed drama ‘The Good Wife,’ which will also be ending its run in the spring of 2019.
“It’s a sad day for us all, because we are in the midst of a historic shift in the broadcast landscape, and we’re going to miss ‘The House’ and it’s cast members so much,” CBS president Channing Dungey said in a statement.
“We hope that the new series ‘The Outsiders,’ which we’re premiering today, will offer something a little more engaging and that it will resonate with fans of the hit series and the loyal ‘The People’ audience.”
“The People” season 5 has already been renewed for an eighth season, but Dungey and her co-showrunners, Eddy Kitsis and Lisa Joy, have already indicated that they would like to see the series continue on for another season.
But that’s not likely to happen, and NBC will likely not renew it.
The ratings slump is part of a larger trend on television.
NBC has been struggling for years with the decline of viewers, which has contributed to the cancellation of some of its big hit series.
But with the ratings of ‘House,’ the series on which ‘The Outtersiders’ and other hits have been based, and ‘Strangers Things,’ which has also been renewed, are now in the low teens, the network could be in for a tough year.
But “The Outsider” season 2 is currently on a very low viewership rating, which is not a good sign.
And with NBC’s new “Stranger Worlds” show on the way, there is also a chance that some of the new dramas could be canceled without too much fanfare.
ABC is still making plans for its next show, but those plans are not yet official, and it could be a while before they are announced.
The network is also still working on a new hit series, and a series starring “The Good Place” creator Beau Willimon and former “Mad Men” cast member Chris Chalk is also on the docket.
The “House” season 3 finale will be shown later this month.
But it’s not yet known when that show will be canceled.
