The CW TV Season Rankings 2021-22 (Updated 08/03/2022) – Canceled + Renewed TV Shows

The CW TV show ratings (cancel or renew?)

This season, for the first time, The CW will air all seven nights each week, so the network will have room for more TV shows than ever before. How will this move affect how many shows on The CW will be canceled or renewed in the 2021-22 season? Keep for updates.

There’s a lot of data that network executives look at when deciding whether to renew or cancel a TV show, but ratings are the main component. These charts for 2021-2022 will be updated daily as new ranking data becomes available.

The CW shows this season (so far): 4400, All-American, All-American: Homecoming, Batwoman, Charmed, DC Legends of Tomorrow, Dynasty, The Flash, The Great Chocolate Showdown, Into the Dark, Kill Camp, Kung Fu, Legacy, Hidden Temple Legends, March, Masters of Illusion, Decoded mysteries, Nancy Drew, Naomi, Riverdale, Penn & Teller: Lie to Us, Roswell, New Mexico, Superman & Lois, Tom Swift, Two-Sentence Horror Stories, Walker, Whose Line Is It? The funniest animals in the world as well as I wish I could lie to you?.

Some notes about these graphs:
These numbers are updated automatically as new ratings are released. Averages are based on final national figures (live plus same day viewing) unless marked with an asterisk.

. For technical reasons, I have to resort to them manually. While these numbers do not include further delayed or streaming viewing, they are a very good indication of the show’s performance, especially when compared to others on the same channel. There may be other economic factors in the fate of a show, but generally higher-rated series are renewed and lower-rated series are cancelled.

Keep in mind that demo numbers tend to be the most important to advertisers. So this is how networks measure success. Advertisers pay more for ad time on shows with a higher demo rating. Older viewers also matter, but younger viewers watch less traditional television and are therefore harder to reach. Delayed viewing is becoming increasingly important these days (if people are watching commercials), but live viewing is still ideal for advertisers.

Demo numbers are usually reported using 10 decimal places (eg 2.4). On average, I use an extra decimal to make it easier to rank. Networks take into account when programs go on the air on Fridays and Saturdays, evenings when there are fewer viewers.
