Aside from maybe “The Good Doctor,” no new series this fall is as sure a bet for renewal as is “Young Sheldon.”

This is probably not news to you. After its big one-time-only showing on the Monday of premiere week, CBS picked it up for a full season. Since its return two weeks ago, it hasn’t approached the height of its premiere, but it has performed very solidly coming out of “The Big Bang Theory.”

“Sheldon” has put up a 2.2 rating in adults 18-49 in each of its two Thursday outings, holding onto 80 percent of its “Big Bang” lead-in. It’s currently the top-rated new show of the season in the demo, just ahead of “The Good Doctor,” and like that show it’s a lock to return.

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.
