The only new fall show on ABC awaiting word on its future is Queens, but the series only launched last week.

It kicked off with 1.8 million viewers and a 0.4 rating, but we don’t know how the show has performed with delayed viewing.

CBS has already made a decision on NCIS: Hawai’i and FBI International, handing out pickups for the full season.

The network also gifted Ghosts a full season after it proved to be a big hit.

FOX and NBC have yet to reveal their plans for their shows that kicked off in the last few weeks.

Both Our Kind of People and The Big Leap have not been strong performers, so they might not get a back order.

La Brea has been a breakout hit in delayed viewing, but it’s unclear whether NBC will keep the show on a shorter run.

Ordinary Joe has performed decently out of The Voice on Tuesdays, but no details on a back order yet.
