The Bear thinks “The Unicorn” has a good shot at getting a second season.

The Walton Goggins-led comedy has averaged a 0.76 live + same day rating in the adults 18-49 demo so far this fall, making it (currently) CBS’ highest-rated rookie series. Its numbers haven’t been enough to make it a shoe-in for renewal, but with so many freshman comedies struggling to make much of an impact this fall, “The Unicorn” has managed to put itself in a pretty good position on CBS’ lineup.

So for the time being, “The Unicorn” is a likely renewal. The same goes for fellow freshman comedy, “Bob Hearts Abishola,” which has been performing well enough to make a season 2 pickup a likely possibility.

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 2019-20 season, replacement level is a 0.5 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 0.5 (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.
