Gotham – Fox
Comic book properties are all the rage on screens big and small, but there are no guarantees when it comes to high-concept Batman prequels in which Paul Reubens plays The Penguin’s father. As such, Gotham has struggled mightily in the ratings game, and though it has maintained a core fanbase of Jerome-loving fanatics, that fanbase is not always up for tuning in to live episodes. And with Fox picking up NFL Thursday Night Football for the next five years, Gotham will need to carve out a new spot for itself somewhere on the schedule. And it absolutely needs to.
Chances of Renewal: Decent, but several other shows will probably need to fall for it to happen.
