The fall television season is a big deal among television fans. It is where it all begins, and sometimes ends. Networks have to spend time promoting new endeavors to make sure there is an audience set to watch when it premieres. NBC has done so-so in recent years, but this year the network managed to bag one of the most-watched new shows. According to an article posted by Entertainment Weekly on October 5, NBC has ordered a full season of “The Blacklist.” Previously the show was picked up for a half-season run, but NBC ordered the last nine episodes to complete the season.
James Spader has given fans something to watch again. The mysterious character, Red Reddington is working with the FBI, but no one is sure why. When he requests to deal with a female agent, things get more complicated as he obviously knows more about her life than she does in some instances. Each week as the story unfolds a little more, fans are coming up with thoughts about the connection.
NBC definitely got it right with “The Blacklist.” It is one of the most popular new shows this season, and it airs directly after “The Voice” on Monday nights. The only show that has done better in ratings is “Sleepy Hollow” on the FOX network. If you haven’t checked out “The Blacklist,” it airs Monday nights at 9 p.m. CST on NBC. You can catch the full episodes online at NBC.com as well.
