“Station 19” may not be ABC’s biggest ratings performer, but things are looking good for the TGIT drama’s future.

The series has been averaging a solid 0.96 live + same day rating among adults 18-49 throughout its second season, and has hit several series highs thanks to its multiple “Grey’s Anatomy” crossovers this year. That 0.96 average is better than the 0.91 that the already renewed “A Million Little Things” averaged in its first season too, putting “Station 19” in a good position for renewal.

But in case the show’s current ratings average wasn’t enough, “Station 19” is also ABC-owned, has been one of the network’s more consistent performers this spring, and is down just slightly from its first season’s 1.05 average. There are several other ABC titles whose futures feel unsure right now, but all signs are pointing towards “Station 19” being a likely renewal.

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.
