Just a few weeks into its third season, and “Man with a Plan” looks to be in good shape this year.

Airing after “The Neighborhood” Monday nights, the Matt LeBlanc-led comedy has been doing well for itself so far this season. With a 1.0 live + same day average rating in the adults 18-49 demo, it’s one of the network’s highest-rated comedies, and is performing on par with its previous season.

Now, there’s still plenty of time for “Man with a Plan’s” standing to change before its season is over, but so far, with a strong ratings hold season-to-season, the Bear believes it has a good shot at coming back again next year.

In other news, CBS handed out a 2-season renewal to “Young Sheldon” last week, confirming the Bear’s suspicion that it’ll maintain a strong presence in the network’s lineup next season, especially with the upcoming conclusion of “The Big Bang Theory” in May.

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.
