The Blacklist
ALL THINGS RELATED

Compiling ratings data from production studio sources for the period beginning January 1 and ending October 31, Vulture recently reported some of the most watched shows in 18 countries, including Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Poland, Hungary and Italy, and the publication found the likes of "NCIS," "Criminal Minds," "The Flash," "The Blacklist," "Grey's Anatomy" and the recently concluded "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" still at the top of the list for most watched shows in the world. Joining them are CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" and NBC's "Days of our Lives," two soaps aired in the daytime in America but in primetime elsewhere.
NBC recently announced premiere dates for its upcoming midseason dramas “Allegiance, “A.D.," "The Slap" and “Odyssey,” while also slotting the second season of summer hit “Night Shift" and comedies “One Big Happy” and “Undateable," which also aired in the summer and is returning for a second season. "The Blacklist," starring James Spader, will move from Mondays to Thursdays, where it will anchor an all-drama block on the network for the first time in decades. The lineup will compete against ABC's all-drama lineup consisting of "Grey's Anatomy," "Scandal" and "How to Get Away with Murder," which have all helped the network win the Thursday crown in the key Adults 18-49 sales demo so far this season.After returning to NBC immediately following the Super Bowl on Sunday, February 1, "The Blacklist" will move to Thursdays at 9:00 PM, ET/PT beginning February 5 with brand new episodes.

With NBC's "Bad Judge" and "A to Z" pulling less a than a 1.0 rating in the key Adults 18-49 sales demographic the network has decided to end both Thursday comedies after airing the original full 13-episode order for each. "Judge," the higher rated of the two, starred "The Practice's" Kate Walsh as a "bad judge" who really isn't. The series pulled a 0.9 in the demo in its most recent airing, while "A to Z," co-starring Cristin Milioti (aka: the mother from CBS' "How I Met Your Mother"), pulled in a 0.7 rating, which is the lowest rating a primetime show reportedly can hit before it gets the axe. Former "Passions" star Ryan McPartlin recently completed an arc on "Judge."
Having catapulted to the number one spot in the 18-49 demo and experienced double digit improvement in many time slots, NBC has announced its upcoming fall 2014-2015 primetime schedule. The network is introducing a portfolio of new content that will be joining veteran shows “About a Boy,” “The Blacklist,” “Chicago Fire,” “Chicago P.D.,” “Grimm,” “Hannibal,” “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” “Parenthood,” “Parks and Recreation,” “America Ninja Warrior,” “America’s Got Talent,” "The Biggest Loser," “Celebrity Apprentice,” “Hollywood Game Night” and “The Voice.”
NBC will be releasing a slew of new primetime programming this fall, all of which the network’s Chairman, Robert Greenblatt, hopes will be bolstered in February on the heels of the Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. “The overriding strategy this year was to develop enough strong comedies and dramas to take advantage of the promotional heft of the Winter Olympics and devise two schedules for the upcoming season: one for fall and a slightly different one for midseason. I’m pleased to say that our development groups — headed by Jennifer Salke (scripted) and Paul Telegdy (alternative/reality) — really delivered,” Greenblatt said. “And aside from our Olympics planning, we also wanted to create better flow and compatibility on each night, and deploy our strongest lead-in (‘The Voice’) to maximum effect.”
