    Still good for TB :)

  • Barnz

    adjust down three tenths that sucks.

  • Mike

    Hope blacklist rises next week

  • K

    Episode 2 of The Blacklist was a bore…interested to see if ratings will continue to drop next week.

  • RyanM

    Wasn’t expecting the blacklist to drop 3 tenths but still a good number for nbc.

  • erwanfromfrance

    WOW! Hell no ! The Blacklist :( :(

  • s0303

    dang, down 3 tenths. still a good rating, but wasn’t expecting it to drop that much in finals…

  • omabin

    That’s still a pretty acceptable drop. Not exceptional, but still normal. I don’t think it will fall that steeper from now on. It will still fall, but slower I think.

    Sleepy Hollow, on the other hand, it’s really amazing. It has lost only 0.5 from its premiere and it has lost 0.1 week to week. Just wow.

  • Dan S

    Blacklist still handily wins it’s timeslot & Sleepy Hollow is a bonafide hit on Fox. Will SH get a back order forcing The Following to air elsewhere in Jan ?

  • s0303

    sleepy hollow looks like a bigger hit than the blacklist…in its third week and only 0.3 lower with less than half the lead in…

  • Stormy44

    Looks like I was right on the money with the demo for Blacklist. I admit that I was surprise when the prelims came out this morning that I was so far off and expected it to drop by a tenth but did not expect 3/10. Will have to wait to see if my analysis of it not being a strong enough female centric show to follow the voice holds up over the next few weeks. I also admit that I’m a female who have enjoyed the first two episodes but I still don’t think it is the right show to follow The Voice for an entire season.


    That puts Castle at less than 500,000 overall viewers and only 1 full demo point behind The Blacklist, where the latter has a far stronger lead-in and more ad dollars pumped into it.

    Not to poo-poo The Blacklist or its fans, but that’s an incredible margin-decrease in favor of Castle long-term. It will be interesting how both series level out moving forward.

  • TV God

    Considering the lead in for 2 Broke Girls, I think both 2 broke Girls and Mom did relatively well for the crap that is We Are Men.

  • Michael

    I like the writing for the Blacklist. However, the last episode definitely had a slower pace than the first one. I can see how it would not be as appealing to a younger crowd.

  • CBSviewer

    Hostages below 6 million viewers :(

  • josh

    I hate you the voice you killing my cbs mondays

  • Flarikker

    The cancellation bear is ready to munch on Hostages.

  • Kevin

    Sleepy Hollow has the potential to outsmart The Following both quality and ratings wise. The Following started strong last season (in terms of quality) but at the end of the run I sometimes couldn’t stop laughing at certain developments. Sleepy Hollow started very strong, I hope this continues.

    If Sleepy Hollow continues to perform like this in the ratings, FOX will have launched two successful Monday drama’s in one year. Something to celebrate if you ask me.

    2 Broke Girls was very good last night, too bad it couldn’t perform better in the ratings. Yet to watch Castle.

  • Todd36

    The first episode of The Black List caught my attention. The writing is good, but the acting is not so great. I’m still intrigued. The Voice is boring this year, I expect it to drop in ratings once live rounds start until the finals.

    We are men should be renamed We are boring men and soon to be out of work! What a crappy show! Bring back Mike & Molly!
