Madam Secretaryย is likely to be renewed.ย Although itsย ratings are low, by the only standard that matters for renewal, atย less than 80% of the CBS scripted average there are seven other CBS dramas with lower ratings. Plenty of shows for the reaper to claim before he gets close toย Madam Secretary.

A little hub bub on Monday when Supergirl was given a follow on order of just seven episodes instead of the full “back 9”. Given that Supergirl started on week 6, the reaper’s inclined to attribute that simply to scheduling logistics and is maintaining his current prediction at “likely renewed”.

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.
