“NCIS: New Orleans” got a huge ratings bump two weeks ago thanks to a crossover with “NCIS,” jumping to its highest rating of the season (2.5). That number will likely come down this week, but nonetheless, it should be plenty safe when it comes time to set the schedule for next season.
“New Orleans” is running 16 percent behind last season’s average rating, true. But it’s still comfortably above the network average for scripted shows and a valuable piece of the franchise.
If it turns in a couple more numbers approaching its last one, that extra smiley will be on its way.

The Renew/Cancel Index is the ratio of a scripted show’s new episode adults 18-49 ratings to the new episode ratings of the other scripted shows on its network. It’s calculated by dividing a show’s new episode live+same-day adults 18-49 average rating by the live+same-day new episode average of all the new scripted show episodes on the show’s own network. Why live+same-day ratings? Because they correlate very closely with the rarely disclosed C3 ratings (viewing of commercials within three days of air), which are the basis for most ad deals.
Shows that have ended their seasons have their R/C Index number frozen at the point of their final episode.
(F) -Fridays: Shows airing on Fridays tend to be renewed with significantly lower than average Indexes.
(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.
