Renewal odds 11/23/15: 'Skin Wars', 'Idiotest, 'The Chase', 'Chain Reaction', 'Hellevator'

Last week's renewal odds

Skin Wars: Already renewed, filmed and has an approximate premiere date for Season 3. Chance of renewal: 100% (flat)

Idiotest: Clearly renewed as episodes continue to film. New episodes most likely coming around in the later winter. Chance of renewal: 100% (flat)

The Chase: I just flat out do not see this getting renewed. If GSN wanted to renew The Chase by now, they would have. Friday night numbers for The Chase have been fantastic, but GSN does not care nearly enough about older-skewing The Chase enough to even give it a Thanksgiving marathon (which they are with younger-skewing shows Idiotest, Family Feud and Hellevator, and advertising them well too). Plus, with Winsanity green-lit, that is very grim news for the future of The Chase. Chance of renewal: 40% (down 15% from last week)

Chain Reaction: No news at all to report here as Winsanity affects The Chase's shot at renewal than Chain Reaction. New episodes of Chain Reaction resume Friday, December 18th at 8pm ET. Chance of renewal: 35% (flat)

Hellevator: This came crashing down to rock bottom pretty fast from strong chance of renewal to almost guaranteed to be gone. A strong sign that Hellevator is a goner is because GSN is pushing up the finale a week early, something GSN has never done to my memory with any of their shows. GSN clearly knows Hellevator is on the decline and wants Hellevator out because declines will likely only steepen as the weeks continue. GSN clearly wants Hellevator off the schedule earlier than later. The only good news is that Hellevator still skews young for GSN with a lack of total viewers but above average 18-49's, which still did not work out too well for Steampunk'd. Chance of renewal: 15% (down 40% from last week)
