TV ratings: 'The Blacklist' and 'Sleepy Hollow' stay strong Monday, 'We Are Men' has soft premiere

Fast National ratings for Monday, Sept. 30, 2013Ratings on the broadcast networks were for the most part down a little bit Monday, as you'd expect following the rush of premiere week. The order of things stayed pretty much the same as well -- "The Voice" was the night's top show in both viewers and adults 18-49, leading NBC to a prime-time win."The Blacklist" also held up pretty well for NBC, dropping only two tenths of a point in the 18-49 demo in its second week. "Sleepy Hollow" also remained solid for FOX, and "Bones" was up some over last week. The news was not as good for CBS, which dipped across the board and saw the premiere of "We Are Men" draw ratings below those of the quickly canceled "Partners" last year. "Dancing With the Stars" slipped for ABC, but "Castle" held steady.NBC brought in 13.5 million viewers and an 8.2 rating/13 share in households... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/10/tv-ratings-the-blacklist-and-sleepy-hollow-stay-strong-monday-we-are-men-has-soft-premiere.html

'The Blacklist': Will you watch James Spader track down more bad guys?

"The Blacklist" may have been one of the most solid pilots to hit network television this fall. With James Spader killing it as the nefarious (but awfully fun) Red Reddington and Megan Boone solid as the young agent Red inexplicably wants to work with, this thriller could be a hit for NBC.The question is, however, will the audiences tune in?It's not like the show is perfect or anything. It isn't. Other than Red and Boone's Agent Liz Keene, none of the main characters have much to distinguish them by the end of the pilot. Maybe we want to know a little bit more about Liz's possibly-evil husband, but the crowd of FBI agents was made up of fairly indistinguishable G-men.Hopefully, "The Blacklist" will right this wrong within a few episodes. There was so much happening in the pilot, after all, that massive character development for the secondaries just had to wait.In a positive sign... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/09/the-blacklist-will-you-watch-james-spader-track-down-more-bad-guys.html

The Blacklist: This Latest Criminal Mastermind Show Is Exciting and Deeply Silly

  As Raymond "Red" Reddington, onetime super-spy turned international criminal at the center of The Blacklist , James Spader makes the same cliché entrance as a lot of mastermind characters these days: He strolls right into the lobby of FBI headquarters and surrenders. Why? Because he's so brilliant, so powerful, so sneaky that not even being in police custody can stop him from doing whatever he wants.   Read More... //www.vulture.com/2013/09/tv-review-nbc-the-blacklist.html

In 1990, while en route home to spend Christmas with his wife and young daughter, he vanished.When Reddington surfaced, he was a mercenary of the highest order.
