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 – Feb 7, 2016)

Bordertown is likely to be canceled.
The reaper always says to ignore what the networks say, and to pay attention only to what they do. What Fox did was announce that Bordertown is moving to the Sunday 7pm in early March. That timeslot move says “likely canceled”.
The Grinder is now certain to be canceled. It battled Bordertown for the headline, and lost this week.
Note: The reaper’s away next week, so no new prediction posts, but he’ll be on Twitter as much as he can.

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.
