TV Ratings: The Blacklist Hits Audience Low Ahead of Megan Boone's Exit

Blacklist Ratings Wednesday

In the latest TV ratings, NBC’s The Blacklist christened its new but very temporary Wednesday home with 2.28 million total viewers (a series low) and a 0.3 demo rating (on par with its most recent Friday outing); read recap. Next week’s season finale marks co-lead Megan Boone’s final appearance as a series regular.

Opening NBC’s night, coverage of the latest U.S. Olympic trials averaged 2.8 mil and a 0.5 — tying Fox’s MasterChef and ABC’s Press Your Luck for the nightly demo win.

Fox’s MasterChef (2.4 mil/0.7) slipped two tenths in the demo, while Crime Scene Kitchen (1.6 mil/0.4) was steady.

CBS’ Kids Say the Darndest Things (2.7 mil/0.3) hit and tied CBS lows.

The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increased use of delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms, plus out-of-home viewing. These numbers (Nielsen fast nationals, unless denoted as finals) instead aim to simply illustrate trends or superlatives. Warning: Contents may be hot!
