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.

*shows no longer on the air have their Renew/Cancel Index "frozen" at the point they left the schedule.


  • :oops: - certain to be cancelled by May, 2012
  • :cry: :cry:- more likely to be cancelled than renewed by May, 2012
  • :| :| :| - toss up between renewal or cancellation by May, 2012
  • :) :) :) :) - more likely to be renewed than cancelled by May, 2012
  • :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: - certain to be renewed 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.

    I love Ringer! It keeps you guessing and on the edge of your seat. I can’t wait from week to week to see what happens next. Totally addicted! PLEASE DO NOT CANCEL. I have never watched Hart of Dixie or Nikita, so can’t comment on those.

  • Morgan

    DON’T CANCEL HART OF DIXIE! I’d like to keep watching Nikita too, but I love Hart of Dixie, it’s great. Ringer is bad and 90210 is trash! Cancel those two.

  • Umar

    Please do not cancel RINGER and Nikita!!
    Especially NIKITA, people have no idea how amazing that show is :)

  • Jillyhilton

    Please keep Ringer, it’s one of my favorites on the CW. It’s different from the rest and there are bit enough shows like it. PLEASE KEEP IT!!!

  • loveringer

    i love ringer jaja best show ever :)

  • go_NIKITA

    whatever may be cancelled..Nikita should not.. it’s a kickass show!

  • Danny

    I haven’t seen Hart of Dixie, it never really interested me, but I can’t comment on it. I love Ringer so much, I think it’s probably going to be cancelled but would be very happy if they renewed it! I really love Nikita, have loved it since the beginning. I thought the first season was great, but the second season is even better! Keeps on getting better with each episode. They can’t cancel it! Maggie Q said that they only needed one more season to wrap up everything so why not just give them that?

  • ScorpioShaw

    Please leave Nikita at least for one more season to end it properly,U can get rid of Hart of Dixie and Ringer, bring back Smallville and call it Metropolis, and do a reboot of Birds of Prey, also bring back One Tree Hill with Lucas on it, thats it started turning people away Lucas was gone.

    UGH!! I saw this RT from Shane West on twitter where a fan said CW was going to cancel either Nikita or Ringer..I was like F no! Get rid of that Vampire Diaries show..sure they have their ratings from their fans but c’mon, that vampires trend is over! I love Nikita, Ringer and Hart of Dixie..they give me life that older shows, Gossip Girl and 90210 used to give me! CBS should have NEVER given CW Ringer..this freggin networks ALWAYS get rid of the good shows and keep the crappy, been there, nothing new shows!!

  • Ms Billie

    Please please keep Ringer it’s an awesome show.

  • spokanelady

    I would really like Hart of Dixie to have at least a second season. Each week, there’s a little more about each character that keeps you wanting to find out what happens. This show is fun to watch, and doesn’t have a lot of violence, just an entertaining story that I can look forward to seeing. Please give it a chance to grow.

  • n

    I like them all but if only one can make it I WANT HEART OF DIXIE!!!!!

  • logan

    PLEASEEEE dont get rid of hart of dixie, i actually am inlove with this show and it is really starting to get good! i would rather this show stay on the air then any of the other ones listed above :(

  • Lucy

    I really really hope Ringer stays. i love that show!

  • nicki

    i really hope that CW renew hart of dixie as it is an entertaining show , no violence ridden end of world story arcs , its fun n normal show that leaves u happy not a stressor show as 90210 is … cancel dat if they have to

  • Cailan

    Get rid of that horrible Nikita remake. It’s atrocious, an insult to “Le Femme Nikita”, and the incredible TV show “Nikita” with Pita Wilson.. Hart of Dixie is a great light hearted show, that I can actually watch with my son. IMO Hart is a keeper.. Ringer is okay but it wouldn’t upset me too much if it’s not around next season. It’s no Buffy…

  • gentlejosh

    ….please..please..please,,renew Nikita…it’s the only episode that made me crazy,,,,I can’t wait to see Season 3…
    ,,,every week I wish its always Friday,,,My “Nikita Time”,,time to relax

  • brandon

    ….Nikita is really the best TV Series!!!, I can afford not to watch any other shows,,,but Nikita,,oh no,,,I keep on watching even the previous episodes…I have complete compilations of Nikita episodes…,again,,please renew Nikita…
    ,,I am appealing for the sake of million lovers/viewers of Nikita…

    I just want to say that I watch more CW shows than any other network. Hart of Dixie squeaks through as just this side of not too sweet, and interesting enough characters with laugh out loud humor, and just short of soap opera genre to deserve renewal. Has promise. It’s a funnier, more family friendly and moments of brilliance (which surprises me constantly), than Vampire Diaries (which I also like). I am bored with Nikita – seems like it keeps trying to one up itself. Perry needs to die – he’s annoying!!! Ringer is smart and addictive, but got more complicated than Revenge, which shows HOW complicated Ringer has gotten – an unfortunate weakness in an otherwise excellent show. 90210 and Gossip Girls are just night time soap operas. Secret Circle is getting better. Supernatural, well, I can’t imagine a year without Sam, Dean, and Cass (if only they bring him back intelligently). Losing Bobby, BOO!!!!!! Stupid stupid move. Definite drop in show quality when Eric Kripke bowed out. Still….. The boys ROCK!!!
