Monday and Tuesday, I’ll be recapping this season’s predictions in my Renew / Cancel Index in separate posts for each network. Wednesday, I’ll have a post showing how the methods I’m going to use next season would have worked (and improved things) this season.

While Robert and I made our final predictions for the CW shows two weeks ago, everybody in the TV media does that. With the Renew / Cancel Index, I make predictions after a single episode airs!

  • The Beautiful Life: Pulled from the CW schedule before R/C Index began for the year.
  • Melrose Place: Predicted canceled after first episode.
  • Life Unexpected: Predicted renewed after first episode, predicted in danger (3/9/10)
  • One Tree Hill, 90210, Gossip Girl, Smallville, Supernatural, Vampire Diaries predicted renewed all season

Unlike last season when the CW’s renew/cancel decisions had no drama at all (although I did attempt to generate some for the doomed by parentage Reaper) Life Unexpected kept things interesting right down to the last minute.

Of course in hindsight it all seems so obvious, but you may wish to amuse yourself with all the fan excuses/complaints/wails in all the original posts.

While I hyperlinked lots of the dates in the ABC post, it got to be too much of a pain to continue with all of them. You can find all the posts at the link below.

You can see all the CW Renew / Cancel Index posts from this season here if you’d like to do your own recap.
