Cable Show Scorecard: May 2013


Things have slowed down considerably on the cable announcement front. Most of the renewals this month were actually made near the beginning of the month. I'm about to outline an overhaul to this month's post but while you're here you can glance at some of the older scorecards while you're at it.

Since it's been a year I suppose there is a tweak to this list in order. It appears that I have a dilemma where a lot of the shows that I put in my prediction posts are coming around to that 9-10 month mark. Personally I would consider the shows to just be canceled but a few times that is not always the case. There's always still a 2-3 month period after I personally consider a show canceled in which a last-minute decision could be made. After that period the silence can't be ignored and when there is no word on the show then it is officially recognized to be canceled everywhere. Since I hate being wrong and would rather just err on the side of caution I'll just create a new category known as Undecided/In Danger Shows. All shows that have been undecided for more than 8 months will go in this category and none will stay in the category for longer than 5 months (either they will be renewed or officially recognized as canceled by then). All shows in this category will be designated in orange.
