ratings started strongly. Its premiere 0.9 adults 18-49 was above the CW's rating average for the week. Sadly for the show's prospects, its last 3 weeks' 0.6 ratings have dropped it into the relative ratings range that indicates the show could be either canceled or renewed by season end. So, the has adjusted his prediction for it to "toss up" between cancellation and renewal. The bear hopes, and somewhat expects, that come spring, and the premiere of two new CW dramas, the relative ratings positions of both and will become a bit clearer.
Why isdefacto canceled?
Fall premiere shows that receive a 13 episode order (veteran or rookie), and no follow on episodes are canceled. (note,). There will be no announcement, as always, except the fact that it's left off the schedule announced in May.
With three seasons complete, the CW syndication gods will demand thatbe renewed for a fourth season. Maybe it'll be a short one like 's, or maybe not. The bear doesn't get into predicting episode orders.

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.
