Blindspot #11

Blindspot continues to perform well for NBC.  The show just reached a 5 week high in the ratings, dominating the 10 PM time slot for NBC with a 2.3 rating and 8.2 million viewers.  These are the best numbers for the show since the October 12th episode.  That scored a 2.3 rating with 8.2 million viewers.  Also up by 7% was the Blindspot lead-in, The Voice.  NBC ranked #1 for the entire night.

This lead me to look at exactly who is watching Blindspot.  The Blindspot audience is the most “upscale” of the night among all the major network’s scripted shows.  The show scored a 124 index in the 18-49 demo, with $100k+ income.  The intelligent story lines and intricate characters are attracting the more upscale viewer.  I think that NBC would be wise to continue Blindspot in the Monday night lineup for the spring season.  It seems like it competes well with the other Monday night lineups.

Blindspot – Post #1

“Blindspot” is a sci-fi/thriller/drama that stars Jamie Alexander (Thor, Rest Stop) and Sullivan Stapleton (300: Rise of an Empire). Alexander plays Jane Doe.  A character who wakes up in the middle of Times Square with no recollection of herself or how she got there.  Adding to the mysterious aura surrounding Doe she has tattoos all over her body, including a back tattoo of the name of, F.B.I. agent, Kurt Weller.  Why does she have these tattoos all over her body? Specifically one of an F.B.I. agent? Where is she from? What is her real identity? You can find out when “Blindspot” premieres Monday, September 21st at 10pm on NBC.

“Blindspot” is taking the time slot of “Night Shift” from the Spring 2015 television season.  Following NBC’s two hour block of “The Voice”, “Blindspot” goes up against the long running series, ABC’s “Castle” and CBS’s “NCIS: Los Angeles”.  The pilot episode leaked online a month prior to the show’s premiere date, so it will be interesting to see how the ratings reflect that.
