Things seem quite alright in “The Neighborhood,” with the Bear calling it a likely renewal at CBS.

With a 1.2 average among adults 18-49, the freshman comedy, which stars Max Greenfield and Cedric the Entertainer, is the network’s highest-rated freshman series this fall. So assuming it doesn’t lose too much of that average in the coming weeks, the Bear thinks it’ll be back again next year.

The Bear also feels even better calling “FBI” a likely renewal, following CBS’ decision to pick it up for a full season. Meanwhile, “Magnum P.I.” remains a tossup for the time being, and the Bear cautiously upgrades “Murphy Brown” to a likely renewal, thanks to the revival maintaining its premiere’s 1.0 for three straight weeks.

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.
