“Schooled” may not have been the ratings smash hit that ABC likely wanted it to be, but the Bear still thinks the network’s “Goldbergs” spin-off has done enough to earn it a second season.

Throughout its first season, the freshman comedy has averaged a solid 0.98 live + same day rating in the adults 18-49 demo, making it ABC’s sixth-highest-rated title of the season so far. That puts it below the 1.19 average that “The Goldbergs” has scored so far this season, but it’s a strong enough performance to give “Schooled” a good shot at being on ABC’s lineup next season.

So with a pretty good 18-49 average and its proven ability to consistently stay in the 1.0-0.9 range, “Schooled” is likely to be renewed.

Key:

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.
