    So The Blacklist loses one full point rating (5+ vs 4.0) and 3+ million viewers (16+ vs 13.99) from DVR ratings of first half of the season just because NBC is stupid giving lead-ins?

    HGN is a fun throwback to when shows like Hollywood Squares, Match Game and What’s My Line aired in primetime. The fact that it doesn’t cost a lot to produce probably means it will stick around for a while.
