Is your favorite fall show about to be cancelled? MAYBE. POSSIBLY. IT COULD HAPPEN.

So I made a huge gallery over at where I made wild guesses on the cancel or renew chances of all the fall shows. Go take a look at it and then feel free to come tell me how wrong I got it!

*I do want to note a correction that needs to be made on that post: I just learned that Conviction is not having its season finale this week. It’s going to move to Sundays next month where it will air its final four episodes. And then we’ll never see it again. Just so we’re all clear.

Related: Let’s check in on some ratings: As a whole, NBC did pretty well this fall. In fact, its most underperforming shows are two that used to be solid bets for NBC – Blindspot and The Blacklist – which means the entire slate may be renewed; The Odd Couple is still not marked as a “Dead Show Walking” despite CBS not ordering more episodes. We shall see; That crossover event on The CW really helped the ratings, but those shows were probably going to be renewed anyway; Just because Empire‘s numbers are slipping doesn’t mean it’s going to be canceled, don’t be daft; Once Upon a Time is way down, but ABC might let it write the end of its own fairy tale next year.

How about This is Us‘s big fall finale, right? Here’s what the creators have to say about that cliffhanger.

But in case you were wondering, this was the very best thing that happened on TV last night:

The Leftovers will be back for a third and final season on HBO beginning in April. Look, I will admit, the first season is a dreary slog — but it’s worth it for 1. the second to last episode of that season and 2. the entire second season which was the best thing on television in 2015. I am serious.

If you’re interested in looking at some spoilery Game of Thrones set photos, you’re in luck!

In case you missed it, The Weather Channel got into a slapfight with Breitbart News. Because this is the world we live in now.

You should read this interview of Tina Fey by David Letterman. It is very good: “But in a world where the president makes fun of handicapped people and fat people, how do we proceed with dignity? I want to tell people, ‘If you do two things this year, watch Idiocracy by Mike Judge and read [Nazi filmmaker] Leni Riefenstahl’s 800-page autobiography [Leni Riefenstahl: A Memoir] and then call it a year.'” — Tina Fey, human genius.

That Zelda Fitzgerald sure was a pill:

Here are some more Unfortunate Events for you:

“Hollywood Publicists” have named Ryan Murphy as Television Showman of the Year, which, fine, sure, but they are presenting him with this honor at the Annual International Cinematographers Guild (ICG, IATSE Local 600) Publicists Awards. How did the cinematographers get dragged into this?

Speaking of cinematographers, the American Society of Cinematographers have nominated Game of Thrones, Westworld, Mr. Robot, The Exorcist, Preacher, Outlander, House of Cards, Gotham, Penny Dreadful, Underground, Manhattan, and The Night Of for prizes.

Omg, there was a moment in time when Mr. Robot dated an actual robot. They had to stop dating because if they had a baby there wouldn’t be eyeballs left for anyone else, true fact.
