SpoilerTV Broadcast Cancellation Predictor Table 2019/20 *Updated 18th January 2020* By DarkUFO (January 18, 2020, 11:05 am)
Update: 12th October We've made a big change to how we calculate this table now. As you can see the Index numbers are now smallest to largest. A show with a small Index is more likely to be cancelled than a show with a high Index. This new formula will hopefully be more accurate and places shows on the CW in a more reasonable position on the table due to the network having generally smaller ratings numbers. Obviously this can go horribly wrong so if you see anything that looks wrong or totally out of whack let me know in the comments below and I'll check the formula/numbers etc
Welcome to this years SpoilerTV Cancellation Predictor
Last year, each week, we updated our data (see the notes below about how we get our data) in order to see if we could predict which show(s) would be renewed or cancelled. As you can see from last years summary, we did pretty well apart from a few CW shows.. We're hoping this year to make it even more accurate.
This index is by no means a 100% accurate guide about if your show is safe or in danger and should be seen as a bit of FUN.
NOTE: Until we have at least 3-4 weeks of data for each show that this table is not going to be very accurate and it will vary a lot each update. We'll try to update the full Cancellation Table once per once the new season starts and the ratings are released.
Major Updates 12th October - New Formula and calculations 25th Sept - Initial Table created and first ratings added.
Understanding the Table - Please Read 1) The Higher the Index Rating number the more likely a show is to get cancelled, lower numbers = safety. 2) This is an ongoing exercise that I hope to refine each week to make the index more accurate. 3) Only the major networks are included currently ie ABC/FOX/CW/CBS/NBC. And only for the main TV Season ie we don't cover Summer Shows. 4) This chart is a prediction of all the shows using our own formula based on the viewing numbers, 18-49, and + 7 Numbers. These 3 factors are the main weighting of the Index number, however we also factor in things such as the Network they are on (eg CW shows get lower numbers), the day of week they air (eg Fridays are lower numbers), DVR Numbers and +7 and +3 numbers,DVD/Blu-Ray Sales,Production Costs, Cast Contracts/Availability, Syndication, online popularity such as streamed views and Torrents, Nielsen Online Ratings etc. 5) Shows still might not get renewed despite good numbers due eg a show coming to an end of run eg A show might be in it's final season no matter what the ratings are etc or could be due to key cast wanting to leave after their contracts have expired. An example might be Supernatural if it’s two leads, Jared and Jensen wanted out, would Supernatural be renewed even if it had good numbers but no leads for the new season? etc 6) Remember Ratings are relative to ratings for other shows on the same network. 7) Shows that have been renewed for a New Season are marked in Blue 8) Shows with an Index under 6 are likely to be cancelled, between 6 and 8 - in danger and greater than 8 safe. Although shows nearer 8 are more in danger than a show with a higher index score. 9) You can access this page via either the Start or Features Menu above or simply by Bookmarking it.
