Scream Queens season 1 is over, and the ratings were pitiful, only 69% of the current Fox scripted show average.

Yet given the lawsuits/ratings of Bones, the terrible ratings of the other rookies besides Rosewood, the fact that Sleepy Hollow and Last Man On Earth are both likely to be canceled, it might still survive for another season.

The fact that no more action is expected by Fox on the show means that their #PRJedi will be able to maintain the show is still alive until next season’s schedule is announced in May.

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.
