The Good Wife is likely to be canceled.
The reaper has had it as a “toss up” this entire season, and it was among the shows he thought he’d have a chance to claim, but news last week that the show’s creators were leaving is enough to push his prediction to likely canceled today.
A consequence of that news also has the reaper moving his prediction for Elementary to likely renewed. With 3 non-rookie dramas ready for his scythe (CSI:Cyber, Person Of Interest, The Good Wife) if there’s a fourth it’ll be Hawaii Five-0, but even it may elude him this season.

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.
