Code blue! Code blue! Fox’s Rake needs an infusion of 4 million Nielsen viewers, stat!

Oh, hello there. As you can see, we’re in crisis mode here at Death Watch Memorial Hospital. It’s that time of year when broadcast networks must decide whether to save their weakest TV shows. While dozens of titles have already been renewed, there’s still plenty of patients in their beds, suffering from a chronic lack of popularity. Take CBS’ The Mentalist: after six seasons of Patrick Jane being right about everything, we’re still not sure he and his dreamy hair are going to make it another year. And then there’s Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, which seemed touch and go for awhile, but now we’re confident Agent Coulson is going to pull through. If fact, we’re just about to make our rounds, so join us as we return to the TV’s version of an ICU (In Cheerless Uncertainty).
