Our Renew / Cancel Index predicts potential renewal or cancellation for scripted broadcast primetime shows by the end of the 2011-12 season in May, 2012. (includes results from January 2- April 1, 2012):

Program Status Renew/ Cancel Index
Ringer πŸ˜₯πŸ˜₯ 0.67
Nikita (F) 😐😐😐 0.69
Hart Of Dixie 😐😐😐 0.80
Gossip Girl πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ™‚ 0.81

Supernatural (F) :mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen: 1.04
One Tree Hill final season 1.06
Vampire Diaries :mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen: 1.79

I’m sorry that these weekly CW posts have become a broken record, but the fact that Ringer is likely to be canceled, plus one or both of Nikita and Hart Of Dixie isn’t likely to change based on ratings prior to the end of the season, but this week, we’ve got a poll! (for amusement purposes only, as are all internet polls)

Choose as many as you’d like!

TheΒ Renew/Cancel IndexΒ 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.
