If Shonda Rhimes decides that this season should be the end of the road for Meredith Grey, then so be it. But that’s the only way “Grey’s Anatomy” is ending in 2015-16.

The show has shown its resilience at the start of this season, its 12th and the first full one without Patrick Dempsey. It’s currently the No. 3 scripted show on ABC, behind only “Modern Family” and “Scandal.”

Also of note this week: “The Muppets” downgrades to tossup territory. Just four weeks in, the show is drawing 18-49 ratings that are less than half of its premiere. That is not the way you want your show to go.

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.
