Our Renew / Cancel Index predicts the network's decision on renewal or cancellation for scripted broadcast primetime shows by the end of the 2012-13 season in May, 2013. (includes results from September 17-November 25, 2012):

Program Status Renew/ Cancel Index

11/28 Update: Emily Owens, MD has been canceled.
-
As many commenters have noted, the CW hasn't released its entire mid-season/spring schedule yet. One likely reason for that could be that it won't include Emily Owens, M.D. and networks typically want to put out bad news for shows that are still airing as late as possible. Emily Owens is certain to be canceled by the end of the season.

CW dramas The Beauty & The Beast,  Hart Of Dixie and 90210 are all still "toss ups" for cancellation or renewal by the end of the season. Unlikely those predictions change before the end of 2012.

How can Nikita with absolutely "look away" bad ratings be "likely to be renewed"? The pull of a fourth season for syndication purposes is one of the strongest forces in the TV universe. Read more about it here.

Better to Follow The Bear, Than Be Chased By Him. This season you can follow the Cancellation Bear on Twitter via @TheCancelBear. The Cancellation Bear will retweet all the Renew/Cancel Index post titles and links as well as engage in a little more back and forth banter than we do on our standard @TVbytheNumbers Twitter feed.

Notes:

  • :oops: - certain to be cancelled by May, 2013
  • :cry: :cry:- more likely to be cancelled than renewed by May, 2013
  • :| :| :| - toss up between renewal or cancellation by May, 2013
  • :) :) :) :) - more likely to be renewed than cancelled by May, 2013
  • :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.

    Yes CW & DC Comics is developing Amazon but it has no further details of it going forward as of yet. Not to say it won’t get made but I’m not betting for the 2013-2014 fall season.

    I think right now with the current information we have now on new tv developments it’s almost clear which series are possible frontrunners for fall. Warner Brothers fought hard to get Sleepy Hollow because Fox is also developing it’s own version of Sleepy Hollow but I think Fox will pass on it. CW’s version is gonna be a boundary pushing horror story that will fit well with Supernatural. Mark P. has stated he is excited about it’s development.

    Steven Speilberg’s Amblin Television is developing Embrace to which Mark P. raced to have it for the CW as the perfect fit for TVD.

    With the success of Arrow, CW pretty much have committed to The Tomorrow People because of what executive producers Greg Berlanti (Arrow) and Julie Plec (The Vampire Diaries) had to go through to secure the rights of the uk show from fremantle.

    Electropolis is a J.J Abrams & Ken Olin undercover cop show . I don’t think the CW will let a J.J Abrams show slip through the cracks.

    The only new developments that I can’t gage is Reign and The Selection because they are similar being describe as Game of Thrones meets Marie Antoinette or The Hunger Games. It all boils down to which pilot is better and maybe which one of the two is cheaper to produce.

    @Erin

    GG is over. It did it’s thing and now it’s done after 6 seasons. Be glad it lasted this long and that it will get a proper sendoff.

  • SueP

    I always find it humorous when people post their visions of next year’s schedule stating Supernatural (Final Season). Do they realize something apocalyptic (pun intended) would have to happen for it to be SPN’s final season? There would have to be at least three or four new hits (maybe more) on the CW next season for SPN (currently the network’s #3 show) to fall enough to be near the bottom and in jeopardy. Even with a couple hit shows, it will still fall into the middle of the pack. With both leads signed for season 10, I’m betting they’ll make it that far despite the naysayers. :)

    I am so upset There is No Gossip Girls Season 7 Why does the cw network have to cancel GG All of the fans really want a Gossip Girls Season 7 i really hope GOSSIP GIRL RETURN FOR TH FINAL SEASON 7!!!!!! Their is still unresolved questions, Who is Chuck’s Biological Mother and Father

  • ddddddddddddd

    What are you smoking, Erin? That show should have been canceled when it wrapped its last season, but The CW (bless their heart) likes to give their “staple” shows a final season to wrap up.

    If you have’t paid attention to the weekly ratings, this season has average less than a million veiwers each week!

    I say The CW should team up with the show creators of The LA Complex and bring it back to replace Emily Owens!

  • Anthony C.

    @Erin

    Sorry if that’s not in the cards storyline wise but it’s ratings and cost don’t justify the pull of another season.

    @Erin

    We’ve pretty much explained why GG is ending. Low Ratings/High Production Costs. Cast only Signed for 6 seasons.

  • Kate

    If they in fact pair BATB with HOD it’ll be interesting to see what happens with the ratings.

  • Promoist

    @omabin that seems EXACTLY what is going to happen I fully agree with u end Emily Owens already worst show ever haha

  • erin

    Anthony C.
