Our Renew / Cancel Index predicts potential renewal or cancellation for scripted broadcast primetime shows by the end of the 2013-14 season in May, 2014. (includes results from September 16-October 13, 2013):

With most of  CW's Fall premieres now behind us, the early news is grim for Beauty & The Beast. The Cancellation Bear correctly predicted it would be renewed last season, but with a premiere rating of just a 0.3, he's moving it directly to "likely to be canceled" this season.

The non-Monday CW ratings last week were all in a range that suggests all of those shows will be renewed. The bear has rookie's The Originals and The Tomorrow People as "likely to be renewed" until he sees another episode or two's ratings. As always, predictions are liable to change quickly this early in the season.

The CW syndication gods will demand that Hart Of Dixie be renewed for a fourth season. Maybe it'll be a short one like Nikita's, or maybe not. The bear doesn't get into predicting episode orders. Crazy fans, and anti-fans, who'd like to predict in the comments are welcome to.

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.

Notes:

  • :oops: - certain to be cancelled by May, 2014
  • :cry: :cry:- more likely to be cancelled than renewed by May, 2014
  • :| :| :| - toss up between renewal or cancellation by May, 2014
  • :) :) :) :) - more likely to be renewed than cancelled by May, 2014
  • :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: - certain to be renewed by May, 2014

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.

    Please dont drop BATB I watch the episodes a few at a time and really enjoy them just move it and try another time

  • Soa.

    BATB are my fav series, the cw should give it a chance, they don’t count the non-American who seen it.
    I love BTAB, maybe the horrible rating cuz of the timing, Monday 9pm, I’m sure people won’t watch it cuz they’ll be tired and stuffs, school and other things.
    I don’t know but I hope they won’t cancelled it.
    Because a lot of my friend and I love it, I feel like crying after knowing about cancelling things.

  • Gabriela

    I think the criticism of BATB is a bit harsh! It is not a bad show, and its clearly not the worst! I at first didn’t think I would like it, but I have grown to, and I feel it deserves to be renewed for a 3rd season. Reduce the episodes, if you have to, find another time slot. Nothing is really on, on Saturdays in my opinion. Put it as a mid-season replacement, something, but just don’t cancel it. I read some of the critics say its not like the 80’s show, why should it be? It’s 2013, ugh! Not every solution is to cancel a show.

  • Gabriela

    I’m a new fan to the show. I found the first season via Netflix, and I’m on the current episode Liar, Liar that aired last week. It is clearly from the ratings that when the show was moved to Monday’s at 9, it lost viewers. So its not the show, its the people that moved it! Move it back to its original time slot or move it to Saturdays

  • BEAUTY AND THE BEAST FAN 1

    BEAUTY AND THE BEAST IS THE ONLY SHOW I LOVE WATCHING EVERY MONDAY, THE SHOW IS REALLY GOOD AND IS REALLY AWSOME! PLEASE CW, KEEP THE SHOW ON TV, I LOVE IT SO MUCH

  • BEAUTY AND THE BEAST FAN 1

    I REALLY HOPE BEAUTY AND THE BEAST WILL DO GOOD AND GET HIGH RATINGS,ITS ONE OF MY FAV SHOWS EVER!

  • BEAUTY AND THE BEAST FAN 1

    PLEASE CW KEEP BEAUTY AND THE BEAST ON TV!

  • dream_orb7

    Its airing in Canada on Showcase a whole day earlier than in the US. So the ratings for that series are really being tested by people who have access to the download online. A lot of US fans would have already watched the episode airing tonight so they don’t have a need to tune in.

  • Breaker Star

    The CW should keep Beauty And The Beast on Tv, Its one of my FAV shows ever!

  • A Beauty and the Beast Fan

    BATB is my very favorite show. Love Katheryn and Vincent. They are the most romantic couple. It is just a very enjoyable show. Pls. don’t cancel.

  • JB

    If it does get canceled that would suck for CW, cause that’s the only show I watch on that channel.

  • Maria

    Please move to different time slot . I’m unable to view the show on Monday’s because it’s not on my area. Batb deserves new timeslot.

  • Mary

    Batb is my favorite show please don’t cancel. The only show I watch on cw. Love Katherine and Vincent .

  • Vedastarter

    I really wish that Beauty and the Beast would do better. I think it would be if Vincent would actually remember Cat. But i really hope that it won’t cancel. Its defiantly one of my favorite Tv shows ever. i watch the first season on Netflix all the time.

  • deethe

    I hope they do no cancel BATB cause there are a lot of people who watched this show. Is the ratings only based in the US. What about in Canada and other countries. It is aired here in Toronto every Sunday which is a good day than Monday when you have the Voice and DWTS which are both aired 2-3 hours. I love to watch Jay and Kristen….

  • Esther

    Nooo…. I like BATB… I just started just into the show :,( please dont cancel it….

  • maria

  • maria

    What I meant to say what can we save b and b from being cancelled.

  • britt

    I really like BATB. I hope they give it another shot.
