RENEWAL ALERT: The Blacklist
This news for NBC's new hit drama came on the heels of news yesterday that it would not take a long winter hiatus. Instead it will air three original episodes in January before the Winter Olympics. It will be interesting to see how it can do without its comfy lead-in but I think it will hold up pretty well. Neither Smash or Revolution had a chance without that lead-in as freshman and they both struggled in year two, especially Smash.
The Blacklist joins FOX shows Bob's Burgers, Glee, The Simpsons, and Sleepy Hollow as early renewals for next season. No other decisions have been made on NBC shows except for the cancelled Ironside and Welcome to the Family.
