This is a special vacation version of the cancellation bear’s predictions written on and including ratings through only April 3. The bear will be back with updated predictions on April 22.

With the cancellation bear far, far away from TV news and his computer, he’s giving readers a chance to doubt *any* of his current predictions, whether they’re renewals or cancellations. The poll includes every show not already renewed or canceled, or currently predicted as a “toss up” by the bear. Choose as many shows as you’d like, and note how very, very wrong the bear is in the comments.

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.ย You can follow the Cancellation Bearย on Twitter via @TheCancelBear.ย If you want to interact with the bear, Twitter, not these post’s comments, is now the best placeย to do that. It’s more fun for the bear and reaches far more people. While this post will likely be viewed over 40,000 times, the comments audience is a tiny fraction of that (a few hundred comments is typical). ย 24,000 follow the bear on Twitter.

*shows no longer on the air have their Renew/Cancel Index “frozen” at the point they left the schedule.

Theย Renew/Cancel Indexย 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.
