TV Grim Reaper predicts potential renewal or cancellation for scripted broadcast primetime shows by the end of the 2015-16 season in May, 2016. (The Reaper Index includes ratings from Sept. 21, 2015 – Sept 27, 2015)
|Bob’s Burgers||🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂||0.63|
|The Last Man On Earth||🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂||0.68|
|The Simpsons||already renewed||0.72|
|Brooklyn Nine-Nine||🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂||0.72|
|Scream Queens||🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂||0.82|
|Rosewood||🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂||1.16|
Minority Report is certain to be canceled, but don’t be surprised, if like last season’s ratings loser Red Band Society it airs all 13 of its ordered episodes. Enjoy what episodes do air. Typically, the Reaper likes to start at “likely canceled” to give himself room for more headlines in the future, but figured doing it in this case would be stretching his credibility.
Scream Queens & Rosewood premiere ratings put both out of the reach of the Reaper, for now. Stay tuned.

The Reaper 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.
