    “The week-to-week gain of 0.5 of a rating point is the most for any new drama this season on ABC, CBS, NBC or Fox.”

    Makes me curious what the big gainers are for non-new dramas.

    Criminal Minds maybe, after baseball was over?

    I don’t watch “The Voice,” but I love “The Blacklist.” Glad it’s doing so well. Its steady ratings combined with this gain prove to me that it definitely has its own fanbase and isn’t reliant on a lead-in (unlike most post-Voice shows). I’ve read that a lot of people, like myself, don’t watch “The Voice” but do watch “The Blacklist.” We’ll see when it returns in January without “The Voice” as its lead-in.
