NBC almost went sitcom free this Fall. Instead they put two in the first hour on Friday. Both are doing badly.

The woeful premiere ratings for Truth Be Told indicate that it’s certain to be canceled.

Maybe sitcom free would have been better.

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.
