Robert's rejiggered his prediction table and reduced the number of distinct prediction categories. That has several advantages.

One disadvantage though is that small prediction changes are no longer able to be headlined. That's less of a problem for him, he only comes up with one headline a week. The Cancellation Bear has to come up with five.

That's why The Cleveland Show finally moves from "likely to be canceled" to "certain to be canceled" this week.

Next week, the bear has another trick up his sleeve.

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.

*shows no longer on the air have their Renew/Cancel Index "frozen" at the point they left the schedule.

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.

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, 2013

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 like the schedule, I just have a few concerns.
    1. I don’t think it is smart to launch Murder Police at 7:30. Since it is a midseason launch, I would move Bob’s Burgers to 7:30 at midseason and air Murder Police at 8:30.
    2. Based on what I have heard, I don’t think Dads is a good fit with New Girl (Dads is more male skewing, New Girls is more female skewing). Since Dads is only 6 episodes, it could air after 90 minute Wednesday X Factors, or have it air it’s 6 episodes after Family Guy (since they are both Seth Macfarlen shows).
    3.I wouldn’t put Glee on Thursday. Move it to Friday at 9 and put The List Thursday at 9.

    I just hope they cancel the Cleveland Show soon enough so that Cleveland can move back to Quahog by next fall.

    God I wish Bob’s Burger’s would get cancelled already, it’s excruciatingly unfunny(not to mention having some seriously UGLY animation), and Murder Police looks just as bad, I hope it tanks hard and clears some room for the Cleveland Show to stay.
