The Blacklist Episode 2


NBC will preempt its hit freshman drama The Blacklist on Monday, November 18. It will air a yet-to-be announced The Voice special -- most likely some sort of a clip show - from 8-9PM. Then a new episode of The Voice will air from 9-11PM. The episode of The Blacklist originally scheduled to run on November 18, titled Anslo Garrick, will now air on Monday, November 25.

    This does not make me happy. The previews for next week looked incredibly intense and amazing.

  • Erwan From France

    Wait ! What ?! They preempt The Blacklist to air a CLIP-SHOW ?!!!!! I think they are joking right now !
    NBC is suffering of The Voice’s over-exposure and what they do Nov. 18 is A MESS !

  • Pepper

    I love that NBC is preempting their ONE hit show to air a clip show for the Voice instead, as opposed to airing the clip show during one of their many flops. NBC deserves its bad ratings.

  • Dennis

    NBC is really airing the Voice too much at the moment. This can’t be good for the show in the long term

    It will be interesting to see what this does to Castle’s ratings. If it holds steady against the Voice, I will be impressed.

  • grey

    Yay for “Castle.” ;D But seriously, why pre-empt your most successful show for a clip show? I guess they’re trying to stretch out the season any way they can.

  • Gabriel

    I NBC is trying to save more episodes of Blacklist for next year, so Intelligence don’t go against repeats

  • Scott

    Not a good idea, NBC. Should have left it the way it was

  • Samunto

    I was completely suprised when Carson Daly said the next episode would air on the special 9pm slot. I thought there would be a presidential adress at 8pm or sth. But a clip show??????

    I wonder what’s behind the logic.

  • Dave

    Sheer stupidity from NBC, its not hard to see why they are stuggling so badly.

  • CrimTV

    Don’t see how this makes a difference. The Blacklist is still a hit and NBC want to save more episodes for 2014.

  • SVU: Hannibal

    so did NBC promo a new episode for next week or for the 25th?


    Strike while the iron is hot, I say! Use Voice spackle generously.

    Then stretch out those new “Blacklist” eps anyway you can.

  • tomko44

    But isn’t moving the Voice to 9-11 mean it will be past most of their viewers bedtime? :)

    NBC has never been know for doing intelligent things. So this is par for the course!

  • Why Watch

    I watch NBC for the Blacklist, not the Voice. Guess I won’t be watching NBC that night. Very dumb move, pre-empting a top show for a clip show. The NBC programmers must be hitting the egg nog early this year.

  • PurpleDrazi

    It must have something to do with saving The Blacklist for some other purpose. Otherwise, this makes no sense.

  • SVU: Hannibal


    just watched the promo on YouTube and they didn’t even mention when the episode was airing. :confused:

  • Paulo PT

    Another pre-empting in the same week? Grimm and Drácula will not air friday.

    Ok, this don’t make any sense to me, are we or are we not in November Sweeps?!!

  • david d

    relax people, this will just allow a new blacklist to effectively replace a repeat in december. i think likely blacklist will air episode 10 on 12/2 and bump the recently announced Hollywood Game Night special back to 12/23, replacing presumably a repeat of blacklist

    i dont love the move, but its understandable. Also Voice will get a bigger rating from 9-11 than it does 8-10, and i guess if they do a clip show with a ‘best of’ the final 10 contestants, they can get people caught up that may have missed earlier rounds
