Network advertisers typically prize those viewers most and so will pay more to reach them. There’s lots of information that the networks take into consideration when cancelling or renewing a TV series but the ratings are the biggest factor. The higher the ratings, the better chance that the show will be renewed. And yes, they take it into account when a show airs on Friday nights

    You will keep that horrible Americas Top Model but you will cancel Emily Owen’s. Which at least that has some kind of good influence on people. What a joke. Its no wonder person by person is dropping cable and television all together. Nothing but these stupid reality ahiws that mean absolutely nothing.

    I can’t believe they are cancelling Emily Owens M.D. Look at the viewers in million, emily has higher ratings than 90210, gossip girl, america’s next top model, hart of dixie and that aweful drag of a show nikita and It’s getting cancelled and not nikita. I hate this I love Emily owens

    No Wonder Why the Ratings are dropping its because the network is still renewed it while the viewers are getting sick and tired of watch American Next Top Model

    90210 ratings should be 3.56 and not 0.97 so the cancellation bear could renew 90210 for a full season 6 with no Cancelation No Series Finale and No 90210 short season
