Last year, NBC moved its Blindspot TV show to Fridays, where it fell even further in the Nielsen ratings — far enough that it is lucky it did not get cancelled. Now that it is back for a fourth season, will it be the final one, or will the Peacock Network keep it around until it hits that 100-episode mark? Will Blindspot be cancelled or renewed for season five? Stay tuned.
An action thriller, Blindspot stars Sullivan Stapleton, Jaimie Alexander, Rob Brown, Audrey Esparza, Ashley Johnson, and Ennis Esmer. After amnesiac “Jane Doe” (Alexander) is found in Times Square, FBI Agent Kurt Weller (Stapleton) and his team work to decipher her intricate tattoos. Despite a web of conspiracy and corruption, they begin to uncover the clues therein, as well as Jane’s identity. As season four kicks off on NBC the FBI team hunts a dangerous enemy operative, and a deadly new foe emerges.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly in the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.

For comparisons: The third season of Blindspot averaged a 0.61 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.261 million viewers (live + same day ratings).
Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
