The last week for the cancellation bear’s regular predictions has him sorting out a few marginal calls.

The late season drift down of The Mysteries Of Laura relative ratings has the bear moving his prediction for the show to “likely canceled”.

After great (for NBC) early ratings, AD: The Bible Continues ratings tanked post-Easter. Because of that, the bear doesn’t think it returns.

The Night Shift’s ratings haven’t been great, but they’re still above the NBC scripted average. The retentionistas will cry foul, but the bear’s moving his prediction for it to “likely renewed”.

Next week: Final % renewal guesses from the bear and @TVTomShaw.

How can Constantine be canceled, random people on the internet/the producers/Warner Brothers/some guy holding a sign on the corner say it’s still very much alive? Read this.

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.
