    No recap from last night’s Blindspot Fall finale? Shocked about that cliffhanger of an ending when Patterson learned that Dr. Borden is the mole working with Sandstorm. We won’t have to wait when the series returns January 4th but I really hate to see Patterson get killed off because she’s the most beloved character on the show since the beginning.

    Nice that Empire rebounded and that Lethal Weapon is steady. FOX at least has one night that is decent for them. Still not bad for Goldbergs and good that DS didn’t dip any further. Blindspot going up a little is good but NBC still made a bad decision putting it on Wed night

    Yay for “Criminal Minds” rebounding! And with a good episode, too!

    Really miss Mysteries of Laura which performed better than Blindspot. Look out Designated Survivor, may end up in Nashville range, another dumb cancellation
