“Mom” has never been in danger this season. It pulls solid ratings and has begun a syndication deal that will give Warner Bros. incentive to keep it on the air as long as it and CBS can stay on agreeable terms.

But the Bear was looking at the show’s numbers and noticed just how solid it’s been so far this season. After doing so, “Mom” gets an upgrade from likely to certain renewal.

The comedy is currently ahead of last season’s average, one of just a handful of shows that can make that claim. Its ratings tend to rise when lead-in “Young Sheldon” gets a bump, but when “Sheldon” comes back down, “Mom” doesn’t fall very far. It hasn’t gone below a 1.4 in adults 18-49 this season, and it’s become CBS’ No. 3-rated comedy in the process.

That all adds up to “Mom” becoming a lock for 2018-19.

Key:

DSW Dead Show Walking: All but officially canceled yet still airing
🐻 sure bet to be canceled by May 2018
🐻 🐻 likely to be canceled by May 2018
🐻 🐻 🐻 tossup between renewal and cancellation by May 2018
🐻 🐻 🐻 🐻 likely to be renewed 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.
