    Any predictions for the Blindspot premiere tonight? I say 0.7 if it’s lucky….


    • Raiderguy

      0.4 is my prediction. 0.6 even feels to lucky for it.


      • 69 Road Runner

        You’re probably right. I was spitballing around the average for a Law & Order episode, but that may be too optimistic. I’ve actually recorded and watched every episode of Blindspot since the series came out, but I find myself probably liking this show the least of any of those I continue to follow….


      • Nan

        0.5 sounds right to me.


  2. mark

    I’d guess 0.3. I’m like 69 RR, I’ve recorded all the shows. I guess it doesn’t really matter how it rates. If it’s really bad i guess they could run/burn off the remaining episodes on Saturday or stream them some where.
