I'm sorry that these weekly CW posts have become a broken record, but the fact that Ringer is likely to be canceled, plus one or both of Nikita and Hart Of Dixie isn't likely to change based on ratings prior to the end of the season, but this week, we've got a poll! (for amusement purposes only, as are all internet polls)

Choose as many as you'd like!

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.

  • :oops: - certain to be cancelled by May, 2012

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.

  • Jacob

    All u ppl who are saying Ringer should be canceled are ignorant stupid idiots

  • paul gonzagowski

    hopefully none of the shows will be cancelled.

  • lala

    get rid of 90210 and keep Hart of Dixie!!!

  • Jenna

    @jacob Why are you mad at us when we are telling the truth? Grow up. And ‘u’ is spelled ‘you’.

  • Brandon

    The ringer should be canceled .. its a horrible show..

  • AimanGabz

    @Jenna get a life were on the internet not at skol so f*** off!! I think they should cancel Nikita only but if they want 2 shows than itll be Nikita and ringer cuz im addicted to hart of dixie

  • GagaAckles

    Nikita and 90210 should be canceled

  • Isabel

    Oh, come on, are you kidding me? Save NIKITA! It’s a brilliant, well-written, action-packed series. I don’t care what other show they renew as long as Nikita does.

  • tyler

    keep ringer!!! and nikita!! isabel im 100% with you on nikita. both ringer and nikita are very suspenseful and have a very brilliant story line, there both very original and exiting and there not your ‘plain old know what to expect shows’. there both very intrigueing which leaves you wanting to watch more.

  • kristyne

    well i hope they keep nikita.its an awesome show en would be a big disappointment if they’s unfortunate how they keep cancelling the vert interesting series.

  • Bob

    I watch six shows every week. Hart of Dixie is at the top of my list. It has a great cast, is well written, the acting is rock solid and the story line is very different than your normal dramas about doctors or cops. Sarah is great in Ringer but the story line is real but violent. Both shows beat reality TV hands down and should be renewed. I never missed an episode of La Femme Nikita starring Pita Wilson. Even though i’m a fan of Shane West, I’ve only watched one episode of Nikita. If you have to cancel a show,save Hart of Dixie and cancel Nikita. Thanks CW Network for creating two great shows. P.S. you are becoming the vampire network.

  • Chicken

    Please keep Hart of Dixie it’s a great show, refreshingly different to most other things on these days. :)



  • Troy

    I really enjoy hart of dixie. It is different and more family oriented than m improvedost shows. Ringer has greatly improved. I have grown bored with Nikkita.

  • Chris

    If it were up to me, I’d cancel The Vampire Diaries. But, that’ll never happen [since its the highest rated show on CW.]

  • John

    All i know is that all 3 shows are great, i dont want any of them to be cancelled :'( cw are gonna have a hard time though, there’s gonna be an uproar for whomever they cancel.

  • John Robert

    I hope for a second season of Ringer desperately.

  • Cathy

    Please do not cancel Ringer. I look forward to watching it every week!! I really hope you bring it back for a second season!! It would be a BIG mistake to cancel the show.

  • Christina

    Jacob, I agree. Ringer is such a good show and its def the best cw show. Hart of Dixie is boring and not interesting at all! Ringer is a great show and I’d be so disappointed of it got cancelled. People would rather watch zombies and vampires than a normal show! WTF!

  • ringerfan

    ringer is the besttttt show everrrr! dont cancel it.
