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 28, 2016)

|The Big Bang Theory||renewed|
|Person Of Interest||😳|
Of course, Person Of Interest is being canceled by CBS. Its season 5 still doesn’t even have a premiere date! Although the reaper would be very surprised if it doesn’t eventually reach CBS air. They paid for it, after all.
The reason the reaper’s beating this dead horse is that plenty of false hope was spun by the shows participants over the last several months. Instead of being honest (or just silent), they spun various false hope memes like “CBS is still deciding!”. Desperate fans are eager to slurp up such nonsense. Sadly.
The reaper’s running tally on CBS shows this season:
Right: Mike & Molly, The Good Wife, NCIS
Push: (renewed or canceled while a toss up): Angel From Hell

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.
