The news that Rush Hour was taking Elementary’s Thursday 10pm timeslot and bumping it to 10pm Sunday set off a flurry of angst among fans. In a vacuum, that move might be bad news for Elementary, but given that’s it’s only in season four its got a chance to survive into season five.
CBS is already certainly cancelling CSI:Cyber, and the reaper still thinks Hawaii Five-0 and The Good Wife are at least as likely to go as Elementary. As always, it will be among his most likely missed predictions.
Angel From Hell ratings started in the range that would indicate likely renewal, but the coming weeks may quickly change that prediction. 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.
