The Blacklist revolves around one of the FBI’s most wanted fugitives (James Spader) who begins helping the authorities if a particular rookie agent (Megan Boone) is his partner. Now, the FBI works for him as he identifies a “blacklist” of politicians, mobsters, spies and international terrorists. The other castmembers in this drama include Harry Lennix, Diego Klattenhoff, Ryan Eggold, and Amir Arison.
The nine episodes of season two that have aired so far have averaged a 3.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 11.83 million viewers. Compared to the first season, that’s up by 15% in the demo and 10% in total viewership.
The recent post-Super Bowl episode drew an 8.4 in the demo and 25.72 million. The network gave The Blacklist that coveted post-game airing to help promote the show’s move to Thursday nights where it will be going head-to-head with Scandal on ABC. Time will tell if this move is a permanent one but The Blacklist will certainly return for the 2015-16 season.
What do you think? Are you glad to hear that The Blacklist has been renewed for a third season? Do you think it will stay on Thursday nights?
