    Happy to see Blindspot now getting 23 episodes in its first season. Fingers crossed for a Season 2 renewal.

    2.2 demo will get your show renewed. That demo total is a flashing green light and a money maker.

    I’m really enjoying blindspot but I prefer series with 10-13 episodes. 23 is so much, there are so many good shows on right now. my dvr can barely keep up.

      Agreed. I have just kicked a couple of shows off my viewing schedule. I am wondering if I should even try to give “Supergirl” a chance even though it sounds good but I don’t want to increase my TV-watching time.

    Will someone on BlindSpot PLEASE hand Jane a brush and a change of clothes.

  8. #Blindspot is good, but leaving an helicopter for god knows how long in a forest filled with govmt fearing zealots is not working for me… And I’m not even talking ’bout finding a cache of weapons in the abandoned barricks. :)

    I love the premise for CW’s Tempest. What makes me nervous is that I foresee CW skewing the tone too young. What gives me confidence is Rob Thomas as Exec Producer.
