We're almost two months into the fall TV season and nothing has been officially canceled yet.

Unofficially, ABC's "Notorious" wins/loses the cancellation derby. The show's ratings have been almost as bad as the series itself, and the network cut the series order back from 13 episodes to 10.

That's cancellation without using the world cancel.

"Notorious" is the first, but it won't be the last to get the ax. Here's a quick rundown of how things stand:

ABC: The only reason "Conviction" isn't ABC's biggest problem is that "Notorious" exists. The Monday-night drama is also headed for a quick exit.

• No. 3 on ABC's non-hit list is "Secrets & Lies." It's no secret this show is struggling.

• Among returning shows, "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." and "Quantico" have taken major hits in new time slots, and "The Real O'Neals" is struggling.

• On the upside for ABC, "Designated Survivor" is doing well.

CBS: It's only been on once, but the medical drama "Pure Genius" got off to a very bad start.

• It was at least a bit of a surprise when CBS renewed "Elementary," "Code Black" and "The Odd Couple" for this season, and none of them is looking strong.

• However, CBS has successfully launched "Bull" and "Kevin Can Wait," and "Man With a Plan" and "The Great Indoors" both got off to good starts.

NBC: The Peacock network has only launched three new shows so far this season, and they're all looking good.

• "This Is Us" has the makings of a hit and has been renewed for a full season (18 episodes).

• "The Good Place" is doing good ratings, but word is that NBC doesn't intend to order more than 13 episodes for Season 1.

• "Timeless" is far from being a hit, but NBC has ordered three more episodes for a total of 16.

FOX: Somewhat surprisingly, "Lethal Weapon" has come out of the gate strong. It's been picked up for a full season (18 episodes).

• Fox also picked up nine more episodes of "Lucifer" (for a total of 22), although the show is a middling ratings performer at best.

• "The Exorcist" has been a ratings disappointment on Fridays and may not stick around for more than one season.

• "Rosewood" is struggling after moving to Thursdays.

• "Pitch" is closer to cancellation than it is to renewal, but there's still hope for that show.

THE CW: As everyone expected, fewer people are watching "Supergirl" on The CW than watched it last season on CBS. Also as expected, "Supergirl" is one of The CW's top shows. That's good news.

• Not much of anybody is watching either of The CW's new shows, "No Tomorrow" and "Frequency." This network doesn't tend to cancel things midseason, so we can expect them to run out the string and then disappear.
