Our Renew / Cancel Index predicts potential renewal or cancellation for scripted broadcast primetime shows by the end of the 2014-15 season in May, 2015. (includes results from September 15-November 9, 2014):
|Program||Status||Renew/ Cancel Index|
|Reign||😐 😐 😐||0.55|
|Jane The Virgin||😐 😐 😐||0.60|
|The 100||😐 😐 😐||0.63|
|The Originals||🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂||0.79|
CW fans are a panicky bunch. The cancellation bear can understand it on one level. CW ratings are low compared to the rest of the broadcast networks, but that’s irrelevant to the future of their own shows who compete only against each other for the 10 hours of CW primetime space (or 8 hours during the “all reality Friday Fall” period).
Given that Reign & Jane The Virgin ratings are consistently below The Originals, comparably rated The 100 is a half season of episodes behind, and several likely lower rated CW shows are yet to premiere, The Originals fans shouldn’t worry, at its current relative ratings levels the show is still likely to be renewed.

Better to Follow The Bear, Than Be Chased By Him. You can follow the Cancellation Bear on Twitter via @TheCancelBear. If you want to interact with the bear, Twitter, not these post’s comments, is the place to do that. It’s more fun for the bear and reaches far more people. While this post will likely be viewed many tens of thousands of times, the commenting audience is a tiny fraction of that (a few hundred comments is typical). Tens of thousands of fans follow the bear on Twitter.

The Renew/Cancel Index is the ratio of a scripted show’s new episode adults 18-49 ratings relative to the new episode ratings of the other scripted shows on its own 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. The network’s average ratings in the calculation are not time weighted (ex. hour long shows are not weighted twice what 30 minute shows are).
(F) -Fridays: Shows airing on Fridays were renewed with significantly lower than average Indexes.
