“Gotham” is going to get a third season.

The show is FOX’s No. 3-rated drama, behind sure thing “Empire” and likely pickup (for now) “Rosewood,” but it’s in a better position than “Rosewood” at the moment.

Aside from a one-week blip where it dropped to a 1.3 same-day rating, “Gotham” has been a model of consistency this season, scoring a 1.5 or 1.6 for every episode. That’s right on FOX’s scripted average, and it’s doing those numbers with no help, as it leads off Monday nights.

The network is going to have several drama spots to fill next season, even if “Rosewood” is able to sustain its numbers enough for a renewal. “Gotham” won’t be one of them.

Key:

DSW Dead Show Walking: All but officially canceled yet still airing
😥 sure bet to be canceled by May 2016

😐 😐 😐 tossup between renewal and cancellation by May 2016

The Renew/Cancel Index is the ratio of a scripted show’s new episode adults 18-49 ratings to the new episode ratings of the other scripted shows on its 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. Why live+same-day ratings? Because they correlate very closely with the rarely disclosed C3 ratings (viewing of commercials within three days of air), which are the basis for most ad deals.

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

(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.
