With yanked after just two episodes, and in its final season, the other three rookie CBS sitcoms all have a chance at a second season. ratings have stayed above CBS's scripted ratings average, and Mom & ratings are close enough below that they would typically be renewed. Into that mix, there's some chance that falls to the bear in May.
CBS could keep all four of those sitcoms, and still premiere two new sitcoms next Fall if they kept Mike &in reserve to fill into the slot of the first failed rookie sitcom, like this season. Given the current ratings levels of those four shows, it's at least conceivably possible all four get renewed. However, Spring often brings a bit more ratings movement which could separate the relative ratings of those four shows and cause some prediction changes.
Also,is in a blind spot of the bear's predictive ability, an old, expensive show with otherwise passable ratings. More than a few of those shows have been consumed when the bear thought they'd escape.

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 averageby 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.
