TV Grim Reaper predicts potential renewal or cancellation for scripted broadcast primetime shows by the end of the 2015-16 season in May, 2016. (The Reaper Index includes ratings from Dec 27, 2015 – Jan 24, 2016)

Second Chance is certain to be canceled.
Its premiere ratings were in the toss up range for Fox, but its second episode ratings fell into likely cancellation territory.
With the announcement late Friday (bad news time!) that it would be moving to Friday immediately, it’s now certain to be canceled.
Note that The X-Files Index number includes only the Sunday premiere ratings, not Monday’s ep2. That will be factored in next week.
Lucifer will join the prediction table next week.

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.
