We're into the holiday season for the Renew / Cancel Index and this post before the holiday break gives readers a chance to pick which shows they'd cancel were they a network programmer. You can vote as many times as you'd like, pick as many as you'd like. I've included every show, even canceled ones, so that no one feels left out!

Scheduling note: The Renew / Cancel Index will return with new Indexes and predictions on January 8, 2013 and will then only use the ratings since December 31, 2012 for its calculations for the remainder of the season. Expect prediction changes in the first weeks of 2013.

Notes:

  • :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 have absolutely fallen in love with Parenthood! I never watched it before this season, but once I saw an episode or two I was hooked. Now I am catching up on seasons 1-3. The characters are fantastic, the acting is top-notch and the writing and stories are outstanding. One of the few shows I truly look forward to every week (along with Person of Interest).

    CANCEL EVERYTHING EXCEPT SVU. THIS IS ONLY SHOW STILL WORTH WATCHING.

  • Snorky

    I know what show the Bear SHOULD be fed, but he might get AIDS.

  • George

    Okay now that one is comment should be removed, anyway I like the TNN but 1600 Penn should be cancelled before it ever even airs its an embarrassment to even put that show on television.

  • Can’t remember

    There are two wonderful reasons to cancel TNN. Let’s start with the writing and finish with the acting. Well, except for Andrew Rannells.
