Our Renew / Cancel Index predicts potential renewal or cancellation for scripted broadcast primetime shows by the end of the 2013-14 season in May, 2014. (includes results from December 30, 2013 – April 20, 2014):

Program Status Renew/ Cancel Index
Raising Hope* (F) canceled 0.43
Enlisted* (F) canceled 0.48
Rake* (some F) 😳 0.66
Glee renewed 0.74
The Mindy Project renewed 0.82
Dads* 😳 0.83
Surviving Jack 😥 😥 0.85
Brooklyn Nine-Nine* renewed 0.96
Bob’s Burgers renewed 0.94
New Girl renewed 1.06
Bones (some F) renewed 1.12
The Following renewed 1.15
American Dad final season on Fox 1.16
Almost Human* 😥 😥 1.16
Sleepy Hollow* renewed 1.27
The Simpsons renewed 1.50
Family Guy :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: 1.70

Except for the future demise of Surviving Jack, which was the last show to appear in a Fox prediction post headline, there hasn’t been anything worth noting in the cancellation bear’s Fox predictions in a very long time. Nor will there likely be before his final Fox % renewal predictions are out on May 6.

So, might as well put Almost Human in the headline, yet again, to attract the search engines and the Twitterati.

The bear continues to be amused by the surprising number of people chirping on Twitter that Enlisted has not been canceled. Either the Fox/Mike Royce PR Jedi are really on their game, or our great nation’s mental health crisis is even worse than I feared. For the sane, freshman shows pulled off the air with episodes remaining have been canceled.

From now through the end of the broadcast season in May, the Renew/Cancel Index values will only be calculated using new episodes airing during 2014.

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 now the best place to do that. It’s more fun for the bear and reaches far more people. While this post will likely be viewed over 40,000 times, the comments audience is a tiny fraction of that (a few hundred comments is typical).  24,000 follow the bear on Twitter.

*shows no longer on the air have their Renew/Cancel Index “frozen” at the point they left the schedule.

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.
