*Our TV Renewal/Cancellation scorecard has been updated to reflect these ratings!

While not exactly a shoe-in for renewal, “The Chicago Code” was even with last week with a 2.1 in the 18-49 demo. Given Fox’s many other woes, that could be enough to earn the show a second season. House was up to a 3.8 rating, leading all shows for the night.

“The Cape” aired its season, and most certainly series finale, drawing a 1.1 in the demo. News wasn’t much better for “Harry’s Law” or “Chuck,” which drew a 1.8 and 1.7 respectively. While those would be cancellation-worthy numbers, both remain tossups for survival given NBC’s overall woes.

ABC led the evening, thanks to a potent one-two punch of “The Bachelor” and “Castle, which led the 10 pm hour.

CBS had a decent night: “How I Met Your Mother” was down, while “Mad Love’s” 2.7 demo may put it in danger. Obviously Charlie Sheen’s antics haven’t hurt the show; it drew a 3.2 in the demo for a repeat. “Mike and Molly” is the bona fide hit of the 2010-2011 season; it increased viewership from a repeat of “Two a Half Men” to a 3.4 demo.

I don’t really know what to make of the CW. If the entire lineup is equally bad, will they cancel the whole network?
