    Wow, The Blacklist is the biggest DVR player EVER. What a huge HIT for NBC.

    And no, people who are watching it on DVR are not just watching it because of The Voice.

    Indeed. It looks like a legitimate hit for NBC. These slips are fairly minor, and it appears to be holding its audience well. I’ll be very interested to see how it holds up this week.

    The key, of course, is to get people to watch it live.

    LOVE this show! So well deserved

    I’m not a fan like everyone else seems to be of this one. I actually think it getting a full season will be detrimental to the story. 22 eps of this? They focus too much on the perps (like every other procedural) then in the last few minutes have some new ~twist to keep you coming back the next week. Probably gonna drop it soon.

    It will have next year post SB slot if stay steady. :)

    The show keeps getting better with each episode- especilly now with the inrigue concerning Liz’s husband and mysterious murder connected to his gun.
