Blindspot- Post #3

‘Blindspot’ finally premiered this week, and it did not disappoint! The show launched on Monday night to a huge rating and share percentage. ‘Blindspot’ took the number one spot in the 10pm time slot, edging out veteran series, ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ and ‘Castle’. The show premiered with a 3.1% rating and a 10% share. The show took in a live viewing of 10.06 million viewers.

Behind CBS’s blockbuster, ‘Big Bang Theory’, NBC owned the night with ‘The Voice’ and ‘Blindspot’. As the week progresses, it will be interesting to see the DVR numbers.

It is no surprise that ‘Blindspot’ premiered so well. NBC really pushed hard for the show, using Time Square marketing and a Comic Con panel. It was the most advertised new prime-time show on NBC’s line-up… and it looks as if it really paid off. Because premiere episodes always tend to achieve higher numbers, it will be interesting to see how well the audience sticks in coming weeks.
