TV Scorecard: Which Shows Have Been Renewed or Canceled in 2017?

Which TV Network Is Doing Best This Year?

Over at the Hollywood Reporter, there's a pretty hilarious slideshow of how the TV networks are performing so far this Fall, including which animal each would be most like. (CBS is an elephant, strong but wrinkled; the CW is a gazelle, skinny and likely to be gobbled up.) It's interesting to see that almost nobody is doing well this Fall (every single network has gone down in viewers since last year), and — as we've been seeing in the ratings each week — even the one-time powerhouses like Grey's Anatomy and Heroes are really struggling.

But I'm wondering if, for you, there's a network that's clearly been a standout this year. Maybe it's launched new shows you like. Maybe it got rid of shows you hated from last season and is starting to change things up. Maybe it's the network with all your old favorites. Whatever the reason, which network do you think is doing best this year?

i don't pay any attention to networks... although i've notices hbo has lovely titles for their shows. i see the shows and don't care what network they're on.

I pretty much watch something on all of the networks (although I can't seem to remember anything I watch on CBS regularly...), so it is pretty much a tie for me. But I guess I do watch the most on ABC. NBC and the CW are tied for second.

I have like, one show on all the different networks; House, CSI, Gossip Girl... So, meh. I watch what I wanna watch. Luckily, they're all on different nights. :D

I voted that they are all awful because I don't really have any shows that are "must see TV" anymore. There are some I like, but most of them are on the brink of cancellation or they are not as good as they used to be. If I had to choose, I would pick ABC first and the CW second.

i had to vote that the CW seems to be doing really well and that's a BIG change since it was struggling more than any other network since the merger. i feel like there are a lot of shows that really do draw in large audiences when the others are kind of slacking!

I voted NBC because they have great shows! The Office, Kath&Kim, 30 Rock, Conan. All shows I love! I also love ABC shows too though!

The CW is having a stellar year- for them and in general. I voted for them; they earned it.

I think the CW is having a great year, for them, anyhow. Many of their shows have seen increased ratings.

Between Gossip Girl, Top Model, Privileged, and Stylista..... CW holds my vote.
