I will admit I haven't seen a single new TV show this season. In fact, the new episodes of my favorite old shows are piling up on the ol' DVR. I'll get to them soon. In the meantime, decisions already are being made by networks about which series will live and which will die.

According to the New York Post, a couple of shows have received a "thumbs up" from viewers. Blindspot on NBC, Limitless, Life in Pieces, and Code Black on CBS, as well as Quantico and Dr. Ken on ABC.

On the flip side, the following shows appear to be in deep, deep trouble: Grandfathered, The Grinder, and Minority Report on Fox, Blood & Oil and The Muppets on ABC, and The Player on NBC.

The Grinder seems interesting enough. I like Rob Lowe and Fred Savage. And Bill Devane is taking time out from selling you silver to co-star in the series. But, 3 million viewers? The Fox News prime time lineup draws more eyeballs some evenings.

My only request is to leave Shark Tank and Last Man on Earth alone. That will keep me happy. Thank you.
