  • I’d watch Alan Alda read a phone book, so if I wasn’t already watching this show, I’d seriously watch just to see him.

    • Sooooo agree but then again, I could listen to James Spader read the phone book – perhaps they could do it in tandem??? Can’t say the rest of the cast does much for me but man, those two voices…. What a duet that will be…

  • I was really hoping to hear he was playing Red’s father, but this is great, too! I hope if he’s an old enemy that the show will leave it open for him to come back instead of a one-off like Robert Sean Leonard.

  • I wanted to watch The Blacklist last night (11/18/2013). It was listed in the TV Guide. But was pre-empted. Tried to watch it on demand with WOW cable. But on demand on WOW does not have the last 2 weeks of The Blacklist. Has anyone else run into this problem???
