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- April 15, 2012):

Program Status Renew/ Cancel Index
Ringer :cry: :cry: 0.67
Nikita (F) :| :| :| 0.70
Gossip Girl :) :) :) :) 0.80
Hart Of Dixie :| :| :| 0.80
90210 :) :) :) :) 0.97
The Secret Circle :) :) :) :) 1.04
Supernatural (F) :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: 1.06
One Tree Hill final season 1.09
Vampire Diaries :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: 1.83

The end is near, but not near enough for my headline writing imagination in these weekly CW posts.

Writing these posts with no new news and the same three at risk shows in the headline has made it ever more difficult to come up with something new. Instead, I settled on something the Google searchers will appreciate.

Don't suggest I headline a post with "Something Will Be Renewed". Relatively nobody searches for that. ;)

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

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.

    It’s dumb to renew because the average rating when show ratings are constantly falling.

  • Natalia

    I saw Nikita on friday and my goodness it looked so cheap. I don’t mean to disrepect but was the show always like that? the CGI/ sets were really cheap looking…

    And for those that were arguing that Nikita waill be cancelled because of show cuts it got. Vampire diaries creator season a season aho that he wanted to do things on the show that the budget did not allow them to do. SPN could not afford to keep Katie Cassidy for as long as they did. EVERY show gets a budget cut, doesn’t mean it’s getting cancelled. Will Nikita get cancelled? possibly but it won’t be beacuse it had gone through budget cuts already.

  • Linda See

    Hart of Dixie is GREAT!!!

  • Lauren

    I really hope HART OF DIXIE gets picked up for another season. It’s so cute and refreshing compared to all the other heavy dramas on the CW. I would be really disappointed if CW doesn’t keep this one around.

  • Kellie

    Hart of Dixie should not be cancelled. Love it.

  • Sarah


  • justin

    Nikita is the most under rated show on t.v. I just wish it was on a network where it could be exposed to non-airhead people considering that every other show the cw (except supernatural) is pure garbage

  • Natalie

    Please save Nikita!!!!!! NIKITA is the best show ever

  • Sam

    I am one of those college students that DVR my TV shows because I am in class when they air. I loved Ringer and Hart of Dixie and I really liked Nikita I will be sad to see any of them go, but most of all Hart of Dixie!! Gossip Girl is beginning to become a little repititive, I’ve never liked supernatural or 90210 and Secret Circle was a bad book, I can’t see it being a good show. The only renewal I am glad to see is the Vampire Diaries. Please renew Hart of Dixie, Ringer and Nikita get rid of secret circle and gossip girl.

  • Pat

    Don’t cancel Hart of Dixie! It’s such a good show, pleeeeease, I would watch it on TV it that would be possible for me. Every week I’m thrilled to see how it goes on. I truly adore the series. RENEW! :D

  • andy

    Please renew Hart of Dixie! I love the fact that no one dies every episode. I really look forward to it every Monday and love the characters.

  • SA

    Renew Hart of Dixie and Nikita, Nuff’ said!!!!
