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.

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.

:oops: certain to be cancelled by May, 2014

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.

    I love Mom and hope it gets renewed for a second season, especially over TCO if it comes down to that. I just couldn’t get into it. I loved Hostages but have accepted its fate as a limited series. Intelligence and Mike & Molly are the only other two CBS shows I sometimes watch, so I don’t really have an interest in the other shows in terms of renewal/cancellation.

    I think the mentalist will move to mondays at 10 (they don’t have better options), tuesdays will stay the same, wednesdays will too, elementary will move to sunadays at 9 (and NCIS: New Orleans on its timeslot), friday also the same, and sundays 9-Elementary 10-The Good Wife

  • Chuckie Chk

    is there ANYTHING that could save Intelligence

  • ImaGoNow

    Yay for Five O! My only CBS show! I also love Blacklist Sleepy Hollow and Chicago Fire and PD so I’ve had a great year! Everybody is coming back!

  • Percy

    Yay Hawaii Five-0!!!!!

  • Franko Blažina

    The Good Wife will get a renewal, 100%.

  • martin gray

    dont count it. only intelligence and the mentalist have lower ratings for cbs dramas

  • martin gray

    cbs doesnt own the mentalist, they get no syndication money for it. its ratings and that means there is no reason for cbs to keep it

  • Ultima

    If CBS stays with four hours of sitcoms, they’ll probably only premiere two new dramas in the fall.
    If CBS drops back down to three hours of sitcoms, they’ll premiere three new dramas in the fall.
    In both of those scenarios, they only need to cancel one veteran drama (almost certainly The Mentalist) to have enough room on their fall schedule.

  • TV Worth Blogging

    I like your schedule i would just move POI to wednesdays at 10 cuz there is no competition and it will dominate and i would sandwich new NCIS between the two current ones

  • martin gray

    true ultima but im thinking they will keep all 4 hrs of comedys and still have 3 new dramas as they usually do. so in my opinion that leaves mentalist, intelligence and good wife on the outside.

    ” But Dramas on cable is a different story. They are great & high rated.”

    In general cable dramas still rat lower than their network counterparts. No quality is another matter.

  • Diane

    YAY!! H50 and Blue Bloods are doing well on Fridays. All H50 haters, eat crow. Adjusted up to 1.8 for demo and 11.27 for total watchers live

    ” TV is slipping”
    That headline could have been from 1982, 1992, or 2002.
    Network TV has been slipping for decades, yet the amount of scripted programming remains constant across all those years mentioned.
    And the TV is slipping applies only to network programming (and again has for decades). There are more scripted offering airing across the all TV today than anytime in TV history.
    TV is doing just fine.

    HAWAII 5-0 YAAAAAAY !!!! :)

  • Armestyle

    CBS please for god’s sake just end Two and a Half Men or at least dump Kutcher and bring back Jake it would be cool to have Jenny, Alan and Jake living together

  • juarhela

    Regarding the Mentalist – given that two of the regulars are leaving at the end of this season, does the reduced cost of the show factor in to its renewal prospects?

  • martin gray

    next to intelligence it is cbs lowest drama. with no syndication money and the ratings why would cbs keep it?

  • martin gray

    always good debating you thanks
