2016 is coming to an end, and the time is right to look back at all the shows that hit the airwaves this fall, and we see some have performed distinctly better than others in the ratings. Most networks haven't finished deciding which current shows will be renewed and which shows will be cancelled, so viewers may have a nerve-wracking few months of waiting for news. Variables can get in the way of sure-thing renewals, and consistency can actually matter more than total viewership. Fortunately, some shows got off to such solid starts in the 2016-2017 TV season that we can safely say another season or two is on the way. Check out our breakdown of 10 shows that definitely won't be cancelled any time soon.

The Simpsons, Fox

The Simpsons has had its ups and downs over the years, and cancellation seemed overtly possible more than once in the last decade or so. The show kicked off Season 28 this fall, and it's done well enough that Fox has faith that it will continue to deliver for at least a couple more years. The network has already renewed The Simpsons for another two seasons, which will bring the total season count up to 30. The Simpsons hasn't been especially consistent in the numbers through Season 28, but it does frequently gain back its losses in both overall viewership and ratings in the valuable 18 - 49 age demographic, and it is once again Fox's top comedy for the year. The renewal will smash a TV record to make The SImpsons the longest-running scripted series in the history of television.
