Welcome to the second edition of The TV Ratings Guide's CBS Renew/Cancel Watch. All scripted, primetime shows are included in the prediction table below once they have premiered for the season. An analysis of any new prediction changes or observations follows. My current predictions are as of November 13, 2016.
The key to the right indicates which colors are associated with each prediction. The data in the table includes season lows, highs, and averages (Adults 18-49 demo), as well as the year-to-year changes for returning shows that have not already been officially renewed or canceled. These are provided for reasoning with and understanding my predictions. The shows are ordered by their season averages against only other scripted CBS shows.
After falling 16 percent from week one to week two (1.9 to 1.6), The Great Indoors ticked up 6 percent to a 1.7 this week. That's lower than what Life In Pieces pulled in the same timeslot for its third episode last year (1.9), but it's still a fairly respectable result for what is currently the network's #3 comedy and #5 scripted show overall. We'll see how the coming weeks play out, but for now it's Likely to be Renewed.
In other news, CBS has reportedly put a TBBT spinoff/prequel series 'Sheldon' into development. Looks like we already know one comedy that's getting some sort of post-Big Bang exposure on Mondays or Thursdays next fall should it go into production by then. Assuming Sheldon is on the fall schedule, where do you think it should be placed?
