Last week, Limitless received a “back 9” episode order to completeย a “full” season of 22 episodes. No surprise there, it’s CBS’s #1 10pm show.

On the other hand, Code Black received only an #ExtendAndPretend order for 6 new scripts (not episodes). That’s a move the #PRJedi use to fool the weak minded that the show might continue, while leaving the door open for an extra ep or two for schedule spackling. But there’s now no hope the show will be renewed, it’s certain to be canceled.

Theย Reaperย Indexย 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.
