In recent years, the only veteran dramas canceled by CBS have been from either Sunday or Friday night, their syndication warehouses. The cancellation bear doesn't see any reason that's going to change this season, and since all four of the current Sunday and Friday dramas would meet the bear before CSI would, it's certain to be renewed.
The cancellation bear has started Intelligence as a "toss up" based on its Tuesday 9pm special timeslot premiere ratings last week, which were hopeful, but not necessarily indicative of what it's likely to get at 10pm Monday. *The January 13, 10pm regular timeslot premiere ratings (which will only be available after this is written/posted) will likely change that prediction, and certainly get the show into the headline next week. Stay tuned.
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 2014. However, until new episodes of a show air in 2014, the "old" Fall predictions will stay in the table.

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.

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.
