CW President (and head #PRJedi) Mark Pedowitz was asked about the reaper’s predictions at the Television Critics Association (TCA) meetings on Sunday.
“I wouldn’t put a lot of credence in TV Grim Reaper Dot Com.” Mark Pedowitz, refusing to be ruled by random websites. #TCA16

The reaper imagines that his follow up was “These are not the predictions you’re looking for. Move along. Move along.”
Given that the reaper’s only predicting two CW shows to be canceled, perhaps the CW #PRJedi have convinced the weak minded fools in the TV media that they aren’t going to be canceling any.

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.
