Will "Boston Legal" Be Renewed by ABC?

Will "Boston Legal" Be Renewed by ABC? and Hollywood Reporter give their predictions about the future of BL.
Mediapredict:"THE MARKET: Will “Boston Legal” be renewed by ABC for the fall season? If the show is renewed for the fall, shares are worth $100. If it isn’t, they’re worth $0. Trading will close when a final announcement is made by ABC, or by June 15, whichever comes first.
THE LOWDOWN: There’s no official word from ABC on whether we’ll see another season of the “Practice” spin-off “Boston Legal” (yes, you forgot it was a spin-off). The announcement that rookie show “Women’s Murder Club” will take its normal spot in the ABC rotation for three episodes might make “Boston Legal” fans sweat. But according to the National Ledger, John Larroquette is betting his white tie that “Boston Legal” will be back.
THE PR: Check out for a fascinating analysis of the full array of bubble shows at ABC. Apparently chances for “Boston Legal” are good because “anecdotally, [it is] said to have great numbers with high income HH’s” (as in households). Nevertheless the show falls in the precarious position of having “above average viewership for ABC, but well below average 18-49 viewership.”
85.7% probability
Hollywood Reporter (from the article"Networks generous with renewals"(4/5)):

"Boston Legal A recent episode of "Legal" hit a series low but, then again, what show hasn't? Given a strong lead-in, "Legal" tends to hold a reliable number. It's also an Emmy darling. A likely pickup."
