The Bear doesn’t yet know what to think of “Magnum P.I.’s” future.

CBS’ reboot of the beloved 80s series hasn’t made nearly the same kind of ratings waves as some other recent, TV show reboots or revivals. With a 0.89 average among adults 18-49 this season, it has failed to land in CBS’ top 10 of the season so far, and yet, still received a full-season pickup last month. Although, to the show’s credit, it has held onto the same 0.8 rating for five straight weeks.

Right now, the Bear is leaning towards it being canceled this year, but wants to wait a few more weeks before making any kind of solid predictions. Call it a hunch, but depending on how well the series continues to hold, the Bear could see CBS deciding to stick with it for another season, or possibly moving it to a different night.

Additionally, the Bear still believes “Young Sheldon” is a sure bet to be renewed this year, and is also standing by his likely renewal calls for “FBI,” “God Friended Me,” and “The Neighborhood.”

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.
