Although last night's relatively weak start for may make the question in the headline moot, this was already written, so go with it.
Since it premiered just last night, ratings haven't yet been incorporated into the table above or predictions yet, but with nothing happening last week on the CW save the burn off the the doomed , MD, it's worth posing the question:
Ifgets renewed, what additional show gets canceled?
Yes, fans of 90210,, Beauty & The Beast, even before premiered one of those shows was certain to be canceled, if The Carrie Diaries is renewed, another one will be as well.
I could make a reasonable argument for all three. 90210 gets its series wrap up this season instead of next. The CW can jettisoninstead of being "albatrossed" with it for two more seasons (ala, ). Beauty & The Beast was already top of the "next to cancel" list.
How can Read more about it here.with the lowest ratings on the network be "likely to be renewed"? The pull of a fourth season for syndication purposes is one of the strongest forces in the TV universe.
Better to Follow The Bear, Than Be Chased By Him. This season you can follow the 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.
From now through the end of the broadcast season in May, the Renew/Cancel Index values will only be calculated using new episodes airing during 2013. However, until new episodes of a show air in 2013, I will keep the "old" Fall predictions in the table.

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 averageby 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.
