The second week kicks off with some changes in the 10pm hour with the arrival of the new season of Castle on ABC and the new season of NCIS: Los Angeles (on its new night) on CBS. Competing with The Blacklist, it'll be interesting to see how things shake out but I still like The Blacklist to easily win the hour in the demo. Los Angeles may be able to snag total viewers. Elsewhere, week two of Scorpion and Gotham will be ones to watch. Mom was planned for 8:30pm but CBS will now run an hour of The Big Bang Theory for several weeks before Mom now gets a slot after it when it moves back to Thursdays (The Millers will take the Monday 8:30pm slot starting Oct 20).
