Friday CBS syndication warehouse residentsย Hawaii Five-0 and Blue Bloods are in their fourth seasons, and the cancellation bear sees no reason why they won’t make their fifth, so he’s moving his prediction for bothย to “certain to be renewed”. ย Hawaii Five-0 gets the headline this week, Blue Bloods next week.

Beside the Monday 10pm drama failures, andย The Mentalist, the bear thinks that CBS may cancel no more of their existing dramas. He promises to make a thumbs up or down call on The Good Wife before the end of the season.

To those who’d accuse the bear of predicting the obvious and marking time while waiting to see if the CBS sitcom situation becomes a bit clearer over time, the bear pleads guilty as charged!

From now through the end of the broadcast season in May, the Renew/Cancel Index values will only be calculated using new episodes airing during 2014.

Better to Follow The Bear, Than Be Chased By Him.ย You can follow the Cancellation Bearย on Twitter via @TheCancelBear. The Cancellation Bear will retweet all the Renew/Cancel Index post titles and links as well as engage in a little more back and forth banter than we do on our standard @TVbytheNumbers Twitter feed.

*shows no longer on the air have their Renew/Cancel Index “frozen” at the point they left the schedule.

Theย Renew/Cancel Indexย is the ratio of a scripted show’s new episode adults 18-49 ratings relative to the new episode ratings of the other scripted shows on its own 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. The network’s average ratings in the calculation are not time weighted (ex. hour long shows are not weighted twice what 30 minute shows are).

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