The Cancellation Bear is pleased he chose the headlining order he did for the NBC shows that were certain to be canceled. Welcome To The Family and Ironside made it into the headline before they were canceled. And now, Sean Saves The World has too.

Next week, Dracula & Grimm numbers enter the prediction stable!

*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.

    I can’t stand “Sean Saves the World.” Disgusting show on every level.

  • Joseph

    The Cancellation Bear has reportedly been spotted planning another attack on NBC this Friday (October 25th) and at that time, he could put “Sean Saves The World” out of its misery.

    Too bad NBC couldn’t come up with the one show that would be cancellation-proof: “The Cancellation Bear Saves NBC-TV”!

    :)

    The Cancellation Bear wouldn’t dare cancel his own show……..or would he?!?!??!??!???

  • Dan S

    @Joseph, your comment was sarcasm wasn’t it ? Grimm is a solid hit for NBC & Dracula initially should do well. It’s a limited series to be replaced later by Crossbones. Though I do agree regarding Sean, please feed it to the bear NBC.

  • AppleStinx

    Someone’s been busy collecting pictures of bears… :cool:

  • StevenD

    Dracula is in the same boat at Hannibal, being a cheap international production. As long as it beats what dateline would do it should be fine. I’d say around a 1.2 or higher is where it will want to settle at.

    I’m still saying that MJF will move to Tuesday at 9:30 after the Olympics with About a Boy. SSTW might get a back order if they try a multi cam block with Undateable?

  • Carl

    @Michael1, I do agree with you about Jerry. I don’t care for that element of the show. Not a big Tom fan either.

    I watch nothing on NBC except for Revolution and I only watched the season premiere. I dvrd the rest of this season but have yet to watch. Honestly I don’t even care if it comes back next season or not. NBC has had awful comedies for a long time.

  • Robert Ford

    Too bad. I actually like SSTW.
    After watching the trailer I said “are the folks at NBC out of their minds?”
    After watching the pilot I said “meh, it’s better than WTTF, and could become good, but probably won’t.”
    The next episode was actually good, and the one after that, and meanwhile it’s losing viewers like blood from a head wound.

    It’s my second-favorite new show of the season, and all of my favorite freshman shows (Trophy Wife, SSTW, B99) are currently certain to be canceled.

    @Michael
    ABC renewed zero comedies in 2008, cancelling both “Scrubs” and “Better Off Ted”.

    ABC renewed both Scrubs and Better Off Ted in 2009, but held them off the fall schedule in favor of the all new sitcom block; they were eventually burned off in the DWTS results show timeslot during the winter.

  • Ultima

    @Oliver
    Has a major network ever renewed less than 2 comedies?

    FOX pulled all of their live-action comedies off the air after five weeks in 2008 and only renewed ‘Til Death for an extended burnoff to reach syndication.

    Also, ABC shouldn’t have renewed Better Off Ted in 2009 and they ended up throwing away money on it (at least they had the sense to leave it off the fall schedule though).

  • Ultima

    @George
    I hope Revolution gets renewed, if not for a full third season then at least a shortened 13 episode third season so they can tie up any loose ends season 2 leaves off with.

    This isn’t cable. A low-rated, serialized drama that can’t be effectively repeated and won’t be entering syndication is going to be produced at a significant loss on a broadcast network.

  • Kate

    Nooo Parks! It has to come back next season.

  • Ronak

    Maybe they should leave Blacklist behind The Voice another season and cement in its viewership instead of having Revolution 2.0 on their hands…

  • Ultima

    @Ronak
    Maybe they should leave Blacklist behind The Voice another season and cement in its viewership instead of having Revolution 2.0 on their hands…

    If The Blacklist doesn’t show growth (or at least stability) behind The Voice, then it will already be another Smash or Revolution. Leaving it there for another season won’t change that, it will just waste their best timeslot.

  • Anthony

    Parks does some good things with their episodes, but until they fix the following items, the show will just have too much baggage for me to find it watchable:

    1) Picking on Jerry was never funny.
    2) Tom Haverford is not interesting. He does not respect anyone and he shouts with a monotone.
    3) April is annoying. There is nothing inherently funny about hating everything and rolling your eyes into the camera. Also, it is extremely immature and also un-funny to hold a grudge against your spouse’s ex, especially when they are trying to be nice to you.
    4) Andy is too much of a moron. Had they made him cartoonishly stupid, that would be one thing, but he’s just an idiot. He is not funny.

    If you look at the ratings, you may discover that I am not the only person who finds it unwatchable. It was recently beaten by a clip show of “Scandal”.

    So basically you hate 3 (out of 8) of the main characters on the show, and hate one of their biggest recurring gags. Changing those things would substantially alter show, to the point of it not even being recognizable as the same show. It’s fine if you don’t like it, but what’s the point in making ridiculous statements such as that (Hey if you just change up 50% of what makes your show, your show, I’ll watch!)?

    Predictions:

    Sean Saves World – Cancelled
    Parks and Rec – Cancelled
    Parenthood – Cancelled

    Michael J. Fox – RENEWED!!
    Revolution – I’m saying Renewed (For now…I am thinking more of a ‘wrap up’ to the series or moving it to Fridays, but Grimm/Dracula is there, so I’m not really sure what to do with it :/ )

  • James

    @Michael1
    So, basically, the shows that you like will be renewed and everything else will be cancelled?

    Good luck on that.
