Every fall, the primetime TV lineup is filled with creative hits and misses, but it's usually the number of people tuning in, and not said creativity, that decides which shows are renewed and cancelled. Some do so poorly right out of the gate that networks drop the axe after only a handful of episodes, while some hang on for months without any decisions getting made. Now that most fall shows have aired at least half their seasons, we can deduce which ones may be in danger of cancellation by the end of the 2016-2017 TV block. Take a look at our list of 9 struggling shows that deserve to be renewed for another season!

Elementary, CBS

Elementary is a contemporary adaptation of the stories of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson as they crack mysteries deemed unsolvable by lesser investigative teams. It's hardly unique in that respect, and it's certainly less well-known internationally than BBC's Sherlock. Nevertheless, the CBS series has been critically acclaimed through its five seasons so far, and many here in the U.S. prefer it to the Brit miniseries. Johnny Lee Miller as Sherlock Holmes and Lucy Liu as Dr. Joan - yes, Joan - Watson have been a dynamic duo from the very beginning, and though the ratings have decreased over the last couple of years, a scheduling shuffle in the CBS lineup may be at least partly to blame for the drop. All things considered, Elementary is still strong enough on the creative front to deserve a Season 6.
