Question: Were The Nine's ratings good enough last week to stave off cancellation?

Answer: It appears they were. It posted a modest increase, but that was apparently good enough to buy the show some more time. But like vultures stalking a carcass, producers from several high-profile series have been inquiring about the availability of several Nine regulars for possible guest spots. The response they're getting is that The Nine is still going and its cast members are not available.
