There's no suspense left in the remaining CBS drama renewal or cancellation decisions, so all that's left for the Cancellation Bear in these weekly posts is getting some headlines in place that will get some search engine love once frantic fans start searching for their previously canceled shows. Golden Boy is certain to be canceled.

The good news is that final up or down (no toss ups!) guesses arrive next Tuesday, May 7! No more boring rehashing of the CBS obvious, the end is near!

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.

** The Renew/Cancel Index does not attempt to predict shows ending because the cast or production company chooses to end them. These shows have the ratings for renewal, but rumored cast/production company moves may end the shows.

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.

    Why are you cancelling Golden BoY? I love that show, What are you putting in its place a (A REALITY SHOW). I hate reality shows If I want reality I would shut off the tv and deal with my life. Of course think numbers this show needs a more better story line. I know right now his partner is going to die, just how I don’t know. The other cop who cheaps lies and under the table with the ex husband who cares if he dies. Not me. Kill one of your reality shows (Suriver) who cares about that show, it is wearing. Keep GOLDEN BOY ON

    I reaaly liked “The Golden Boy” wish it was on earlier and Friday. I couldn’t watch CM any more.
    I know those bad things happen but too upsetting. Change your mind on Golden Boy!

    do not cancel Golden Boy or Vegas or CSI New York you keep cancelling good shows like this and presenting UGH stuff Surviver chased me to other channels as did Rules of Engagement and some others we don’t all live in some stupid supernatural world – Vegas was great because it was in the historical 50’s or so and Golden Boy was a great down to earth cop show and Golden Boy was great in that part as was his partner.
