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.

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.

    TVfan I am so hoping Bobbie is going to become the boys guardian angel that or now they know he didn’t cross over they are going to bring him back somehow…. I love Bobbie….

    It’s really sad that they’ve changed the day Nikita goes on, because Friday is the day that no one sees TV, and they have to give a shot for Niktia because of it :/

  • lola

    Ringer is my favourite show, please don’t cancel CW!

  • Javier

    Nikita would have done so much better on a different network that wasn’t intended for the you teeny bopper kids that don’t understand what a great well written and what a excellent production value show is. Nikita is one of the best shows on the air right now. Canceling it would be a huge mistake. They seriously need to find a different way of promoting it. Maybe changing the cover. I remember when I didn’t want to give this show a chance because it looked dumb with that red cover and nikita sitting down all seductively. They need to change that because people are judging a book by its cover. It would be sad to see it go.

    Ringer has been getting very good. SAVE it! I will be sad if there isn’t a season 2.

  • bluma

    do not cancel nikita or hartof dixie

  • Gabrielle

    People need to give this show a chance. Buffy didnt have a big following early on either and now it has a HUGE fan base. The character development is phenomenal and the writing is fresh with new twists and turns every week. We NEED to see what is going to happen! SAVE RINGER!

  • Anne

    Come on, they can’t cancel Nikita! The show is great and totaly deserves another season, at least. It would be so disappointing… It is so worth the shot! Please, don’t cancel Nikita! =(

    I love Ringer! I know that the story line is complex, but that is what I like about it. (Remember Veronica Mars? Complex show that you have to follow every week to know what is going on to appreciate it) Ringer is really well written and it isn’t your average “Gossip Girl – 90210″ sleep with every character on the show before the season is over kind of television show. I really hope they give it one more season. I don’t watch Nikita or Hart of Dixie but I understand people who do watch the shows not wanting it to be canceled. It sucks to get really into a show and it get canceled.
