“Brooklyn Nine-Nine” has recorded its three best 18-49 ratings of the season since joining FOX’s Sunday lineup. It probably still won’t be enough to keep the show going.

Even with the Sunday bump, “Nine-Nine” is just at replacement-level numbers for the season. Coming as it does from an outside studio (Universal), the show still is more likely than not to be done for good by the end of May.

Had FOX scheduled the show on Sunday for the full season? We’ll never know for sure, but the evidence at hand suggests “Nine-Nine” would at least be in somewhat better shape than it is now.

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 7 70 percent) before subtracting the replacement-level number.

 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.

    […] Brooklyn Nine-Nine might be in trouble despite rebounding in the ratings once Fox moved it to Sunday nights. […]
