Ratings: Blacklist Finale Ticks Up; CW Dramas Surge; Voice, Broke Girls Slip

NBC’s The Blacklist wrapped its fall run on Monday night with 9.8 million total viewers and a 2.5 demo rating (per finals), ticking up 4 percent and a tenth.

Leading into that, The Voice playoffs, Night 1, did 11.5 mil and a 3.2, dipping 6 and 9 percent week-to-week.

Season 2 of The Blacklist resumes on Super Bowl Sunday aka Feb. 1, 2015, before the drama moves to its new Thursdays-at-9 time slot starting Feb. 5.


ABC | With NFL preemptions factored out, Dancing With the Stars (13.3 mil/2.0) and Castle (9.5 mil/1.6) both were flat.

THE CW | The Originals (1.5 mil/0.7) surged 36 and 40 percent, while Jane the Virgin (1.2 mil/0.5) saw gains of 20 and 25 percent.

FOX | Gotham (6.4 mil/2.2) dipped 5 and 7 percent, but Sleepy Hollow Starring TVLine’s Kim Roots (4.7 mil/1.5) was steady.

CBS | 2 Broke Girls (7.6 mil/1.9) slipped 5 and 14 percent, while The Millers (6.5 mil/1.5) ticked down on tenth, with both shows at series lows. Scorpion (10.1 mil/2.0) dipped 9 percent, while NCIS: LA (8.2 mil/1.5) fell 11 percent in audience but was steady in the demo.

    Yay Blacklist..best episode of the season. It’s nice they finally gave us some answers, but then about 10 more were raised. Is it February yet? *sigh*

    What a way for The Blacklist to wrapped up not only the Fall finale but on Mondays. Can’t wait for the post Super Bowl episode on February 1st and then the move to Thursdays @ 9 p.m. starting February 5th should do just fine.

    cbs is missing himym for sure… hope gotham’s numbers stay at least steady now… I really like the show

      It tied its series low. Fox must be wondering what they have to do to stabilize this show, when it seems things are going well, it drops a tenth or two.. That said it does have a bit of competition in this slot so a 2.2 is at least decent, beating Dancing With the Stars too.

    YAY for Jane! It’s not dead yet! Brilliant show.

    Had to catch Castle this morning since Charlotte ABC was showing the local football team be clobbered instead of the ABC programming. Dancing was shifted over to a sister station but not Castle.. Thankfully ABC OD on TW had it today… It was scheduled to be shown on WSOC in the middle of the night this week.. Local Castle fans without a cable box got screwed…

    I was hoping for better with Castle, but I’ll take the up tick. Too bad they don’t count the number of times that people re-watched the last 3-4 minutes. It would have surged up! :)

  9. Moment says:

    The Millers continues to drag down Scorpion, such a shame. Pity Big Bang Theory isn’t on at 8pm and 2 Broke Girls 8:30, that would have a positive effect on Scorpion and likely NCIS LA. Ah well. Also concerning that Sleepy Hollow hasn’t shown any improvement from last week.

    • Tran says:

      TBBT should do just fine on Thursdays but Mondays did alright when CBS have to telecast football games on Thursday nights sharing it with the NFL Network.

    more importantly who is that in the photo accompanying this article? why hello there…

    Was hoping for a huge Castle night, but it’s not bad. Thought it would be bigger considering it trended on Twitter for almost three hours.
