The Blacklist: Season One Ratings

The Blacklist TV show ratingsNBC hadn’t had any luck filling the Mondays at 10pm timeslot until Revolution came along. Will The Blacklist be a ratings success this year? Will it see a second season or will it be cancelled after just one? Time will Tell.

The Blacklist revolves around one of the FBI’s most wanted fugitives (James Spader) who offers to help the authorities if a particular rookie agent (Megan Boone) is his partner. The other castmembers in this drama include Harry Lennix, Diego Klattenhoff, Ryan Eggold, and Ilfenesh Hadera.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

    RENEWED!!!!!!!!! I’m going through withdrawal all ready!!!!! This morning, I thought my DVR was broken! I didn’t realize last week was the season finale! Thank goodness this is at the beginning of the week (assuming it returns to Monday night) and Scandal is at the end of the week because my heart needs time to regulate between shows!!! The Blacklist cast, especially James Spader, and the writing staff are AMAZING!!! It’s so wonderful to see this level of talent and entertainment on NBC! I found myself watching strictly cable television series for a while until CBS picked up Scandal. Now I’m hopeful that the “reality” craze is slowing down and “We The People…” are engaging in REAL acting and original network programs!
