‘Blindspot’ #1 New Fall Show!

Well… the second week numbers are in and it is safe to say that ‘Blindspot’ on NBC is the number one new show of the fall season! The already healthy live ratings for the premiere were boosted by even higher DVR viewings. The live+3 ratings for the first episode topped off at a 4.5 rating with 15.2 million viewers.

With the large amount of marketing NBC put behind the show, it is no surprise that it is such a hit. The series is also the highest rated new drama since the freshman premiere of Fox’s ‘Empire’ last March. Overall, ‘Blindspot’ fell in the #2 spot right behind CBS’ ‘The Big Bang Theory’ in live+3 viewings for Monday night.

To further celebrate the success, NBC has just ordered 9 more scripts for the drama. In comparison, most shows only get orders for 3-5 additional scripts. The order for 9 more scripts matches the highest “episodic back order a fall freshman show can receive” (Deadline). I am pretty sure it is safe to say that ‘Blindspot’ is here to stay.
