TV by the Numbers' Cancellation Bear makes weekly predictions of broadcast scripted show futures, and devours low rated TV shows! The Cancellation bear also provides daily Twitter updates to his followers on the latest ratings and prospects for their favorite shows. He'll let you know if your favorite show is destined to be #bearchow.
