Friday CBS syndication warehouse residents Hawaii Five-0 and Blue Bloods are in their fourth seasons, and the cancellation bear sees no reason why they won't make their fifth, so he's moving his prediction for both to "certain to be renewed".  Hawaii Five-0 gets the headline this week, Blue Bloods next week.

Beside the Monday 10pm drama failures, and The Mentalist, the bear thinks that CBS may cancel no more of their existing dramas. He promises to make a thumbs up or down call on The Good Wife before the end of the season.

To those who'd accuse the bear of predicting the obvious and marking time while waiting to see if the CBS sitcom situation becomes a bit clearer over time, the bear pleads guilty as charged!

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.

*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.

  • HeadlessHorseman

    No surprise here. Both shows are doing great for Friday nights.

  • CBSviewer

    Hawaii Five-0 is great on Friday and it will be on for a few more years.
    I think The Mentalist should be upgraded and Two and a Half Men downgraded.

  • sixseasonsandamovie

    Will CBS keep four hours of comedy or move back to three next season?

    None of their new comedies are hits, Mom and TCO will fight until the end for the renewal with the old and expensive 2.5 Men on the race too.

    The Millers, meanwhile, is a fake hit that pulled low 2s when aired without TBBT and it has a dreadful retention and no, I’m not a retentionista and there is no way that show gets canceled but I wonder what’s going to be the situation for the next seasons, since CBS will definitely try to launch another new comedy after TBBT.

  • cgmv123

    I think they go back to 3 hours. They saw how well debuting 4 comedies went and HIMYM is ending, so that’s another slot to fill.

  • alex fan

    I love that H50 and BB are now predicted to be renewed, great Friday night line up. As for How I Met Your Mother, my take on it is this year the demo is up because it’s the finale season and rightfully so, everyone wants to know how it will end.

  • Marvelover

    Theyre so low on the totem pole that even though theyre Friday shows, I wouldnt make them certain, Id say theyre likely to be renewed. As for comedies, I think all 3 ‘could’ be safe. I only emphasize could because of Two and a Half Mens age. In the 2012-13 season, CBS started with 3 hours of new drama, then they canceled Made In Jersey and pretty much replaced it with Undercover Boss. This year they only had one new drama slot. More than likely theyll have the Monday at 10 slot next year, the Sunday at 10 slot, and possibly the Sunday at 9 slot. That seems like plenty compared to past seasons, so that means its less likely theyll need to downsize on comedies to make room for Dramas. As for the comedy landscape, CBS only debuted one new comedy last year with 6 returning shows in 6 slots, with Rules of Engagement serving the same role that Mike and Molly did this year. How I Met Your Mother is already set to end this year and I wouldnt put my money on a mid-season comedy, so that means theres already 1 slot open for new comedies, plus they could do what they have been doing and keep a veteran on the bench to replace a freshman thats struggling, meaning there could be two freshman slots. Last year CBS picked up 4 comedies and passed on 6, this year they have ordered 8 comedies. Last year CBS passed on 7 dramas and picked up 2. This year they have ordered 5 so far. That means that unless they order many more pilots for this year, the numbers are in place for the 3 comedies to survive.

  • Holly

    With Blue Bloods and 5-0 doing so well on Friday, that puts a lot more pressure on Good Wife and Mentalist.

    I’m on the fence with whether CBS will keep the new hour of comedies. It hasn’t worked out really well for them, but the comedies are still doing better than a lot of the dramas and I don’t see them wanting to give up after just one year.

    Remember CBS hasn’t renewed a mid season sitcom since Rules of Engagement like in 2005 so saying Friends with Better Lives will probably get a second season is maybe a little too optimistic.

  • Kubukurin

    C’mon CBS just renew TGW already it’s the best broadcast drama.

  • Chandler Marlowe

    Person Of interest and Hawaii Five-O are the only ones I care about.

  • alex fan

    Time will tell CBS loves TGW. If demo is more important than viewers except maybe on Fridays, then I would say both H50 and BB survive, neither win the demo, usually H50 has higher or same as BB and both lead viewers my a very wide margin. Maybe this is just my wish but I’m also basing my opinions on the numbers.

  • Holly

    Maybe. It might depend on how their development goes as well.

  • Anthony Parello

    Wouldn’t the list of network dramas getting above a 3.0 be just as short?

  • DM

    NCIS and …?

  • jlopie1

    Hey, Cancellation Bear! Do enjoy the surf and the warm trade winds in Hawaii! You finally validated what most H50 fans have been praying for all season, so you deserve a vacation to warmer climes!

  • sixseasonsandamovie


    The Blacklist hit mid 2s without Voice and even other CBS dramas like NCIS: LA and Criminal Minds are on mid-2s, same to ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy

  • Steven Lesser

    Praying for another season of The Good Wife!

  • RobC

    I really hope CBS is happy enough with the Amazon Prime numbers of TGW and isn’t as worried about Hallmark putting it on hold. I so want TGW to end the way the Kings want to end the show rather than a cancellation.

  • iampaddii

    I wonder what will happen to 2BG once HIMYM is gone. I mean if it’s taking over its spot will it have the same ratings? Or will they be better or worse?
