    The Blacklist continues to have its share of great guest stars (Dianne Wiest, Robert Sean Leonard, Robert Knepper, Peter Stormare, Paul Reubens, Krysten Ritter, etc.) and I can’t wait to see how Peter Fonda would fare on October 27th.

    And A&E will cancel the award shows mid-airing leaving viewers hanging as to whom actually won.
