So which series are still left to fret over their fate? Freshman drama The Tomorrow People, which comes from Arrow boss Greg Berlanti and TVD's Julie Plec, as well as Hart of Dixie, Beauty and the Beast and The Carrie Diaries. Newbies The 100 and Star-Crossed have yet to premiere and their performances will weigh into the network's decisions for the 2014-15 season.

Regarding Beauty and the Beast, Pedowitz recently said, "I'm really happy with it creatively." Rachel Bilson's Hart of Dixie, meanwhile, will move to Friday night when it returns in March. "It had a tough time period up against The Voice and Dancing With the Stars. It held up fairly well," Pedowitz said of HOD's old Monday timeslot.

The Carrie Diaries season two finale recently attracted less than a million viewers.
