Some shows will live, and some shows will be canceled.
NBC has already made some big decisions.
Below, we’ve rounded up how your favorite shows are looking.
This Is Us – Ending
It is rare for TV shows to have a pre-planned conclusion that is honored.
This Is Us will wrap following its sixth season in May.
Season-to-date, the show is averaging 4.8 million viewers and a 0.8 rating.
Chicago Fire – Renewed
Like so many other shows, Chicago Fire is down year-to-year.
The show that started the franchise is averaging 7.1 million viewers and a 0.8 rating in the demo.
With a week of DVR factored in, the numbers build to 10 million viewers and a 1.3 rating.
The numbers will keep the show on the air for years.
Chicago Med – Renewed

The series builds to 9.2 million viewers and a 1.2 rating in the demo.
The numbers make it one of the most-watched shows on TV this season.
Chicago PD – Renewed
The series is averaging 5.8 million viewers and a 0.7 rating in the demo.
The lower total viewer tally can be attributed to the later slot than the other shows in the franchise.
With a week of DVR factored in, it builds to 9.3 million viewers and a 1.3 rating.
Law & Order: SVU – Renewed
The aging procedural is still showing signs of life.
it is currently averaging 4.3 million viewers and a 0.7 rating in the demo.
It soars to 6.6 million viewers and a 1.2 rating within a week, so it is no slouch.
La Brea – Renewed

It surged to 7.4 million viewers and a 0.9 rating within a week.
It also held up well out of The Voice.
Law & Order: Organized Crime – Certain Renewal
The latest spinoff is averaging 3.5 million viewers and a 0.6 rating.
The numbers are great for a 10 p.m. drama.
It builds to 5.9 million viewers and a 1.1 rating within a week.
It will be around for a while yet.
Young Rock – Certain Renewal
The series is up a bit in total viewers, but down a bit in the demo.
It is averaging 3.1 million viewers and a 0.5 rating.
The numbers are decent, and it should be renewed.
American Auto – Could Go Either Way
The freshman comedy averaged 2.2 million viewers and a 0.4 rating.
The numbers are not terrible, but they’re also not great.
A future could depend on what NBC’s plans are for next season.
New Amsterdam – Renewed
The series is down considerably, averaging 3.3 million viewers and a 0.4 rating.
The numbers soar to 6.2 million viewers and a 0.7 rating within a week.
It will be around for a few years yet.
Ordinary Joe – Certain Cancellation
Despite showing signs of life early into its run, the numbers are too low to be in contention.
Averaging 2.3 million viewers and a 0.3 rating in the demo is not enough.
Even worse, the show builds to a mere 3.8 million viewers and a 0.5 rating within a week.
The Blacklist – Renewed
The series was once the buzziest show on TV, but it has fizzled out recently.
Currently averaging 3 million viewers and a 0.3 rating.
It does still get a decent boost on the DVR front, rising to 5.1 million viewers and a 0.7 rating.
Mr. Mayor – Could Go Either Way
The series has lost steam in its second season, falling 42% in total viewers to around 2 million on average.
The show does have decent buzz, so it could eek out another renewal.
Time will tell.
Kenan – Likely Cancellation
The series dipped 34% in the demo this season to become one of the lowest-rated scripted offerings on the cabler.
The numbers are not far away from the other comedies, but the decline in-between seasons could spell doom.
We’ll have a clearer picture of how it stacks up in the coming weeks.
