Like several other freshman shows that have debuted over the past few weeks, ABC’s “The Fix” has gotten off to a very low start in the ratings.

The network’s newest drama premiered to a 0.7 rating among adults 18-49, tying it with “Whiskey Cavalier” as the network’s lowest-rated series premiere of the season. That’s down considerably from the 1.1 rating that “The Good Doctor” averaged in the same time slot this season, and makes the show’s renewal chances seem quite unlikely.

It’s too early in the show’s run for the Bear to call “The Fix” a sure bet to be canceled, but the show’s low premiere ratings have made it, at the very least, a likely cancellation this year.

In other news, ABC went ahead and renewed “The Conners” for a second season last week, as the Bear had predicted the network would. It is now ABC’s fourth scripted show renewed for the 2019-20 season.

Key:

DSW Dead Show Walking: All but officially canceled yet still airing
🐻 sure bet to be canceled by May 2019
🐻 🐻 likely to be canceled by May 2019
🐻 🐻 🐻 tossup between renewal and cancellation by May 2019
🐻 🐻 🐻 🐻 likely to be renewed by May 2019
🐻 🐻 🐻 🐻 🐻 sure bet to be renewed by May 2019

The Renew/Cancel Index is the amount above (or below) a replacement-level rating — i.e., the expected adults 18-49 rating of an emergency fill-in show should a series be canceled. For the 2018-19 season, replacement level is a 0.6 same-day rating in adults 18-49 for the Big 4 networks and a 0.1 for The CW. (Read more here.) The index number is taken by subtracting 0.6 (or 0.1) from a show’s average same-day rating.

Friday scripted shows (denoted with an “F” above) on the Big 4 have average ratings about 30 percent lower than those of other nights, therefore their ratings are multiplied by 1.43 (1/0.7, or 70 percent) before subtracting the replacement-level number.

Shows that have ended their seasons have their R/C Index number frozen at the point of their final episode.

(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.
