    Blindspot had the highest rating of any original scripted program of the night! 😉


    • Shan

      It’s a re-run night and the finale fell to it’s lowest in total viewers. And the finale sucked in how the series wrapped itself up and it didn’t help with NBC delaying it a week.


  2. Riff

    Why stop at “Live PD,” A&E? You should go all the way. Can “The First 48” too. I’m sure its loss will only be a “temporary hit in the ratings.” You know, because of that bountiful plethora of other hits you’re always “finding” and “reinventing” the channel with. Oh, yeah, and while we’re at it, your parent company’s broadcast network should can David Muir. He’s, like, too white and stuff. Toxic whiteness like his is just not gonna fly in today’s super-duper multi-kulti ratings bonanza utopia of endless Nielsen riches. Replace him with Nick Cannon or Michael Che and then apologize for not “doing better.”
