Our Renew / Cancel Index predicts potential renewal or cancellation for scripted broadcast primetime shows by the end of the 2011-12 season in May, 2012. (includes results from January 2-8, 2012):

Program Status Renew/ Cancel Index
Nikita (F) ? 0.65
Supernatural (F) ? 0.86
The Secret Circle ? 0.86
Vampire Diaries ? 1.62
Gossip Girl ?
Hart Of Dixie ?
90210 ?
Ringer ?

-
Nikita remains the lowest rated show on the CW. "Lowest rated scripted show renewed" miracles do happen (Fringe, Chuck), and one of those miracles is likely what it will take to save Nikita.

? - Only half of the CW scripted shows aired new episodes last week,  so its Renew / Cancel Index is sufficiently incomplete to cause me to hold off making new predictions on any of its shows for now.

The Renew / Cancel Index above includes results beginning January 2, 2012. How did the CW's shows stack up based on their Fall results? Click here.

The Renew/Cancel Index is the ratio of a scripted show's new episode adults 18-49 ratings relative to the new episode ratings of the other scripted shows on its own network. It's calculated by dividing a show's new episode Live+Same Day adults 18-49 average rating by the Live+Same Day new episode average of all the new scripted show episodes on the show's own network. The network's average ratings in the calculation are not time weighted (ex. hour long shows are not weighted twice what 30 minute shows are).

(F) -Fridays: Shows airing on Fridays were renewed with significantly lower than average Indexes.
