The original “Hawaii Five-0” ran for 13 seasons on CBS. The remake might not make it that far, but it’s a very good bet that it will get to at least nine seasons.

“Five-0” has nosed ahead of “Blue Bloods” as CBS’ top-rated show on Friday nights. Its current rating just above 1.0 is equivalent (given lower overall TV usage on Fridays) to a 1.4 on other nights of the week. In other words, it’s as healthy as the network’s top-rated drama in terms of raw numbers, “NCIS.”

Considering that CBS also profits from the show’s syndication deals, “Hawaii Five-0” is very well positioned to continue its run.

Key:

DSW Dead Show Walking: All but officially canceled yet still airing
🐻 sure bet to be canceled by May 2018

🐻 🐻 🐻 tossup between renewal and cancellation by May 2018

🐻 🐻 🐻 🐻 🐻 sure bet to be renewed by May 2018

 

The Renew/Cancel Index is the amount above (or below) a replacement-level rating — i.e., the expected adults 18-49 rating of an emergency fill-in show should a series be canceled. For the 2016-17 season, replacement level is a 0.7 same-day rating in adults 18-49 for the Big 4 networks and a 0.2 for The CW. (Read more here.) The index number is taken by subtracting 0.7 (or 0.2) from a show’s average same-day rating.

Friday scripted shows (denoted with an “F” above) on the Big 4 have average ratings about 30 percent lower than those of other nights, therefore their ratings are multiplied by 1.43 (1/0.7, or 70 percent) before subtracting the replacement-level number. Any scripted show on Saturdays will use the same formula.

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

(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.
