These charts incorporate the daily final CW show ratings (reported by Nielsen) and are sorted by the 18-49 demographic. 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

Supernatural, Vampire Diaries, Arrow will definitely be renewed!
Hart of Dixie, Beauty and Beast will likely be renewed.
Carrie Diaries, Nikita will likely be cancelled (though I can see still see Nikita sticking around for another season somehow).
90210, America’s Next Top Model will likely be cancelled.
