“Agent Carter’s” first-season ratings ended up within a tenth of a point of those of “Agents of SHIELD,” the show it fills in for during the winter. So on that level, its renewal for a second run made some sense.

That looks to be a much tougher case to make this time out. Though “SHIELD” has declined some this season, it’s in the renewal column thanks to the third-season rule, and pretty close to the network average.

“Agent Carter” has neither of those things going for it, what with its premiere rating (0.9) being less than half of the 1.9 for its series premiere last year. Barring a huge surge in the coming weeks — or the long tentacles of Disney/Marvel getting even longer — Peggy Carter’s TV journey looks to be over after this season.

The Renew/Cancel Index is the ratio of a scripted show’s new episode adults 18-49 ratings to the new episode ratings of the other scripted shows on its 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. Why live+same-day ratings? Because they correlate very closely with the rarely disclosed C3 ratings (viewing of commercials within three days of air), which are the basis for most ad deals.

Shows that have ended their seasons have their R/C Index number frozen at the point of their final episode.

(F) -Fridays: Shows airing on Fridays tend to be renewed with significantly lower than average Indexes.

(O) – Owned: All other things equal, shows owned by studios affiliated with their networks have a better shot at renewal than those from outside producers.
