Many commenters asked "What ratings could Fox have expected from Enlisted with that scheduling?". The Cancellation Bear would have them note that in renewal and cancellation decisions expectations are irrelevant Fan Excuse Bingo play. For freshman shows ratings are all that matter, and the ratings for Enlisted make it certain to be canceled.

One of the few shows that the bear currently disagrees with Bubble Watch about, Brooklyn 9-9, won a couple Golden Globe awards on Sunday. If it's renewed, as the bear predicts, the confused will exclaim "Awards matter!". The bear will note the show's relative ratings and exclaim "Confirmation bias!" (or "Coincidence!", take your pick).

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.

Better to Follow The Bear, Than Be Chased By Him. You can follow the Cancellation Bear on Twitter via @TheCancelBear. 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.

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.

    They presented the show as one thing, a thing that would allow them greater control, as a deceit to get their real message through the airwaves. Fox had already committed to the show by the time they realized the creators’ true intent.

    I didn’t realize that you need to wear a tin foil hat now to watch television.

    “They presented the show as one thing, a thing that would allow them greater control, as a deceit to get their real message through the airwaves. Fox had already committed to the show by the time they realized the creators’ true intent.”
    Genius. The creators are brave souls. Who knows what will happen to them? By February they’ll probably have “disappeared”…

  • hey

    Enlisted was actually pretty good. I didn’t love it or anything, but I’ll definitely keep watching for as long as it’s on.

  • One @ psychic

    No, that would be too blatant. Everyone would realize what happened then. And it would be anarchy.

    The government has no choice but to continue to allow the continuation of the First Amendment on the surface, while subtly engineering culture away from one that demands the actual execution of such.

  • One @ Jagger Dagger

    You jest, but the government really does have such means of input. But no mere tinfoil hat would stop such a thing. In fact, there is no way to be truly free of government input, because to do so would require the destruction of all five senses, and that is no way to live. We must simply recognize and rise above their destructive techniques and fight for true freedom.

    Ah, so hence the subliminal advertising and pathetic timeslot.
    But surely they’ll want to make sure that a “car crash” or another “unfortunate accident” ensures the creators aren’t able to get another message out to the common person.

  • Charmed

    Anyone else find it weird Family Guy hasn’t been renewed yet?

  • Sarah

    I really wish Fox would move Bones off Fridays for its final season. I know it won’t happen, but I can dream.

  • One @ psychic

    Such base entertainment uses cheap thrills to disengage next-level brain processing.

  • One @ Fake Me Out

    Your trickery will not work on me, government stooge. I am the enlightened one. And you will be rendered unto utter desolation along with the government you seek to perpetuate.

    You’ve been warned.

  • THE OLD MAN

    I was wondering how One would react to this post, so I’m wondering no more

    Enlisted is one show that I will watch every episode until its demise!

    As for B99 (the perfect running mate for Enlisted) I say “Confirmation “Coincidence!”

  • Fake Me Outf

    @ One

  • One @ Fake Me Out

    Attempts at coercion will be met with extreme retribution.

    You’ve been warned.

  • Fake Me Outf

    @One

    DO you really think I’m trying to coerce you?

    NOT that I’m against such things mind you …

    WATCH whatever you like, it’s still a free country!

    ENLISTED deserves a chance just like any other show.

  • One @ Fake Me Out and Jagger Dagger

    I can see all of your tricks. And your cronyism, Jagger. Both of you will be punished in the new order, lest ye course correct now and stand up for the cause of true freedom.

    You’ve been warned.

    Glad to see people coming back to watch Almost Human. Hopefully FOX will see the improvement and give it another season.
