What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the NBC television network, The Blacklist follows former US Naval Intelligence officer Raymond “Red” Reddington (James Spader). After disappearing for two decades, and landing on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list, he surrendered himself to FBI Assistant Director Harold Cooper (Harry Lennix). In exchange for immunity from prosecution, Red promises to help the Bureau track and apprehend some of the world’s most dangerous criminals and terrorists, provided he can work exclusively with Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone). The cast also includes Diego Klattenhoff, Ryan Eggold, Amir Arison, Mozhan Marnò, and Hisham Tawfiq.
Season Four Ratings

Once NBC’s biggest drama series, The Blacklist is down in the ratings again this season. With four full seasons, The Blacklist will have enough episodes for a decent syndication package. However, it still performs reasonably well on a tough night. Word is that NBC will likely renew the show for a fifth season.
