    Stick a fork in the Blacklist. Given the hits NBC has in its arsenal, its time to wrap this one up and try something else here. My vote is to go comedy on Wednesdays from 8 to 9 into 2 Chicago shows. I’d air the other two Chicago shows into SVU on Thursdays. New shows after the Voice and This is Us. Maybe a final run for the Blacklist and Shades of Blue if it doesn’t flop on Fridays after Dateline.

      I see them making the Blacklist a mid season show or a Friday show. It still has massive DVR playback numbers even now. I do not believe they will put a fork in it.

      I propose pushing SVU to Thursday at 10PM. They can put Chicago Justice at Wednesday at 9PM to lead in to Chicago PD with “This is Us” being the Wednesday anchor.

      NBC does not have “hits”, even if it has better than this sad sequel.

  • JimU

    Doubt with Katherine Heigl is officially the first show cancelled.

    Riverdale: Wow what a disappointment this has been. At times this is downright boring and overly dramatic. Really average characters. CW should just move on.

    • renamoretti1

      And yet CW will order another season of this ratings disaster…

  • renamoretti1

    Anyone who remembers real ratings from real hits on Thursday night has to cry at this sad, pathetic excuse for a night of television… :(((
