It has struggled in the Monday 10 PM time period, and is one of the least watched CBS scripted series currently on the air in Live+same day.

CBS had been expected to do some major cleanup on Mondays where it’s seen its ratings fortunes falter. Scorpion is the first official cancellation on the night, it likely won’t be the last.

Remaining on the bubble are two other CBS drama series, Code Black and Elementary. It is unclear whether the network will impose formal cancellation on Wisdom of the Crowd which is presumed dead.

Scorpion centered on eccentric genius Walter O’Brien (Elyes Gabel) and his team of brilliant misfits who are the last line of defense against complex, high-tech threats of the modern age. Robert Patrick, Katharine McPhee, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Jadyn Wong, Ari Stidham and Riley B. Smith also star.

The series from CBS Television Studios, was executive produced by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Nick Santora, Nicholas Wootton, Justin Lin, Heather Kadin, Scooter Braun and Walter O’Brien.

Ask Matt: Who’s to Blame When Left Hanging By Cancellation (‘Lucifer,’ ‘Scorpion’), Woe Over ‘Rise,’ ‘Expanse,’ ‘Designated Survivor’

Welcome to the Q&A with TV critic (also known to some TV fans as their “TV therapist”) Matt Roush, who’ll address whatever you love, loathe, are confused or frustrated or thrilled by in today’s vast TV landscape. One caution: This is a spoiler-free zone, so we won’t be addressing upcoming storylines here unless it’s already common knowledge. Please send your questions and comments to (or use the form at the end of the column) and follow me on Twitter. Look for Ask Matt columns on most Tuesdays and Fridays.

Blame Network or Show-runner When Left Hanging?

Question: After Fox canceled Lucifer, its creator (Joe Henderson) said on Twitter: “We created a season finale with a huge cliffhanger so that there was no way Fox could cancel us. Instead, we’re going to frustrate the hell out of you fans. I’m so sorry for that.” I don’t even watch this show. Never have, it’s not my speed. But how does that logic make any sense at all? It stuns me when TV creators seem to disregard the fact that TV is a business when they’re deciding how to conclude a season for which renewal is not a foregone conclusion. Do they really actually think that they would get renewed “just” because of a cliffhanger, if the business side of a renewal doesn’t make sense for the network? I’m struggling to remember even one incidence where a network has actually done a renewal for something they wanted to cancel just to wrap up a cliffhanger. — Jake

Matt Roush: First, a program note: You won’t be surprised to learn that the main subject of this column is fallout from cancellations, and since sending Lucifer to TV purgatory has raised more of a fuss than most, let’s start there. I have never been shy in stating that the primary responsibility for these situations falls on producers, who are in charge of the creative aspects, rather than the network, which tends more to business. The network each year has to make some tough calls, and when 9-1-1 in particular popped, at a time when Fox is leaning away from high-concept serialized genre dramas toward more mass-appeal procedurals including a recast Lethal Weapon, shows like Lucifer and the extremely low-rated Exorcist (a personal favorite) were vulnerable. There are times when a fan outcry is enough for a network to consider reviving a show that left us hanging—the first title that comes to mind is Jericho, if not last year’s Timeless (which involved other business considerations)—but this seems a longer shot.

‘Lucifer’ EPs on How the Finale May Not Be the End — and Neil Gaiman as God?

Plus, an unaired episode meant for next season would have featured the creator… of ‘Lucifer.’

Question: With Scorpion’s cancellation, I’m yet again irked by a network allowing a bubble show to air a cliffhanger finale. I can see why the show’s producers might want to do this (both to presumably pressure the network to renew the show and to open possibilities for future seasons), but for the life of me, I cannot figure out why networks allow it. It seems like they have little to gain and everything to lose as it leaves their customers annoyed and damages their brand. Does the network really have so little power over what they choose to air? — Darren

Matt Roush: This is the flip side of the argument, and it’s true that fans tend to paint the network as the villain for canceling the show in the first place. But in my experience, I’ve learned that memories are relatively short, and as much as we’re annoyed and might say in anger that we’ll never watch this or that network again for having allowed this to happen, by fall most people come back to see what’s new. (Although in the bigger picture, there are many reasons for the diminished state of network TV, and this is one of them—even if Netflix and premiere cable networks aren’t immune from dropping the ax on underperforming shows these days.)

Plus, History Channel axes ‘Six,’ ‘UnREAL’ ends, and more.

I can’t speak with enough authority about the relationship between a network’s programming department and show-runners to speculate on whether they’re warned against writing season-ending cliffhangers if there’s a risk the show won’t come back. It would make sense, but producers and network suits aren’t always known to be on the same page, so there probably is a limit to this kind of dialogue. And my own gut would tell me if I were in this position that if I didn’t earn an early renewal, especially on a renewal-happy network like CBS, I’d hedge my bets and plan for a satisfying season ender, instead of trying to force the situation, which often backfires.

Any Hope for (Fill in the Blank) Continuing?

Question: I am a complete total Lucifer fan since season 1, but even I have to admit that season 3 was clunky and even boring at times. My biggest problem was Tom Welling’s character and story arc, which seemed convoluted and at times really confusing. After such a strong and enjoyable Season 2, with Tricia Helfer’s character adding so much to the already successful first season, I was surprised that Season 3 was such a missed opportunity. Also, Tom Ellis and Lauren German’s characters will-they, won’t-they hook was mishandled as it seemed to drag on without any credible hurdles. In spite of all that, I was hopeful that Fox would realize the gem they had and renew it for a fourth season. In my opinion, it is unacceptable to have been broadcasting the ludicrous Gotham for four seasons and not giving Lucifer a chance. In any case, I would like to know your opinion about this casualty and if you reckon any other network may be interested in saving it. I understand this is produced by the Fox studio, so there is little to no chance, but still such a great concept should be given a chance. — David L

Matt Roush: I don’t watch Lucifer regularly enough to have much of an opinion beyond stating the obvious generality that high-concept procedurals like these can be hard to sustain over the long haul. And if even a loyal fan such as yourself had serious issues about the third season, which might explain the ratings drop (the real culprit here), then Fox’s business decision to favor a fifth and final season of Gotham over keeping Lucifer going is somewhat more understandable. Which leads to the inevitable question of whether anyone will come to its rescue, which is more rare of a situation than it would sometimes appear. To be precise, Lucifer is produced by Warner Bros., which also had to scramble to save Lethal Weapon, so unless corporate cousin The CW chooses to add this to its considerable roster of comics-inspired series—unlikely, given that the network also passed on NBC’s Constantine a few seasons ago—I’m afraid last rites may be in order.

The Final ‘Gotham’ Season Will Focus on Bruce Wayne’s Transformation Into Batman

Fox revealed Season 5 will highlight Bruce Wayne’s transformation into caped crusader.

Rise Ending on a Sour Note

Question: I was very disappointed to learn that Rise (my favorite show of this past year) has been canceled. Any chance that it will be picked up by another network? And even if not, any chance that the cast’s full production of Spring Awakening would be shown at some future date? — Blaine

Matt Roush: The standard response to this question is a no, and it’s hard to imagine anyone else taking a swing on a show that didn’t make it past its first season, and didn’t make much noise while it was on. I had many problems with Rise—the main character in particular—even though this tends to be the sort of show I’d get behind. Beyond that, whatever we see of Spring Awakening in this week’s finale is all we’re likely to see. While Fox is planning to present a live version of Rent next January, Spring Awakening as a musical event would be a pretty tough sell—even on NBC, which initiated the renewed wave in live musicals on TV. I’m not sure there’s even enough of a Rise cult to merit the sort of concert production that the Smash musical-within-a-musical Bombshell got after that show was canceled.

Could The Expanse Expand Beyond Syfy?

Question: I have been following you for many years; we have similar tastes in TV. First I’m going to go Sci-Fi, or SyFy as it is now. How in the name of the OPA they saw fit to cancel The Expanse is just beyond me. It is by far the best space sci-fi show in years (RIP Farscape, Babylon 5 and BSG). Rich universe, great characters (Shohreh Aghdashloo is bloody brilliant), and with novels to base it on, it was poised to be Syfy’s Game of Thrones. From what I understand, most of the show’s production costs were paid by Alcon, and the show is on Netflix everywhere else in the world. Think there may be a shot of the show being completely picked up by Netflix? Or any hope for the series? At least I can always fall back on the novels.

Which brings me to the next Q’s. I love Hap & Leonard’s adventures. Any word on the next book, Bad Chili, being adapted? And is there more Deutschland ’83 still to come? Or Deutschland ’86 I think it’s going to be. I try to catch you every week on Twin Cities WCCO Radio. Cheers! — Bradley

Kevin Bacon Says Syfy Passed on ‘Tremors’ Pilot

The actor announced on social media that a series based on the cult film franchise is a no-go.

Matt Roush: This cancellation surprised me as well, as The Expanse seemed an important part of Syfy re-establishing its space-opera credibility. I’m bullish this show could find an afterlife—on either Netflix, because of the global distribution model, or on Amazon Prime (depending on the deal), which currently has rights to the show in the U.S.

To your other questions, Hap & Leonard was unfortunately just canceled after three seasons, which is too bad, as I love these characters and the world they inhabit. And the ’86 sequel to Deutschland is still expected to air on SundanceTV sometime this year, but it hasn’t been scheduled yet.

Fox’s Canceled Comedies

Question: I was sad to see that Fox is canceling The Mick and The Last Man on Earth. I don’t watch a lot of shows religiously, but these were two that I did. Any chance that another network would pick them up? Will there be farewell seasons to wrap things up? Need to know what’s going to happen to Sabrina and the new survivors revealed on the finale of Last Man. — Rick R

Matt Roush: I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but these were in-house productions from the Fox studio, so it’s very unlikely anyone would swoop in to keep them going. And farewell seasons aren’t really a thing, unless they’re announced as such before a show is canceled.

From Sarah Drew’s ‘Cagney & Lacey’ to a ‘Supernatural’ spinoff, these shows didn’t get season orders.

The Autopsy on Designated Survivor

Question: Designated Survivor was appointment TV for us—I say was, because we never watched it again after the winter hiatus. Seeing that it didn’t get renewed, what do you think was the primary cause of death? The long hiatus, the first lady’s death, or the constant churn behind the scenes (I lost count of how many show-runners they had)? — Unsigned

Matt Roush: My own take on Designated Survivor was that soon after its gripping pilot episode, the show never really figured out what it wanted to be: a political procedural, a conspiracy thriller, a family drama. The elements didn’t mesh easily—or worse, authentically—and I never felt the series truly lived up to its intriguing premise of an unlikely leader rebuilding a government after a horrific attack. ABC’s decision to put the show on ice for so long didn’t help, and killing the first lady seemed a needless tragedy and a desperate call for attention. So I’d think all of those elements, along with disappointing second-season ratings, led ABC to conclude there wasn’t much growth potential here. I can’t disagree.

‘Designated Survivor’: Michael J. Fox & Kiefer Sutherland Reunite 30 Years Later

A sneak peek at the actors’ on-screen reunion 30 years after filming ‘Bright Lights, Big City.’

Question: Why does Kiefer Sutherland whisper so much? It has become annoying. — H.M.

Matt Roush: On the bright side, you won’t have to put it with it much longer. I always felt Kiefer Sutherland’s quiet intensity worked well for Jack Bauer. For a commander in chief, maybe not so much. But this wasn’t the worst of Designated Survivor’s many problems.

What’s This TV Show About?

Airing on the CBS television network, Scorpion revolves around computer expert Walter O’Brien (Elyes Gabel) and his team of brilliant misfits. They’re this country’s last line of defense against complex, high-tech threats. The quirky masterminds have found the perfect job: a place where they can apply their exceptional brainpower to solve the nation’s crises, while also helping each other learn how to fit in. The series also stars Robert Patrick, Katharine McPhee, Jadyn Wong, Ari Stidham, Eddie Kaye Thomas, and Riley B. Smith.

Telly’s Take

As expected, Scorpion’s ratings have dropped this season, in part because the show was moved to a 10pm timeslot. They’re pretty mediocre. At the end of season three, this series will have more than 70 episodes and the studio will want more episodes than that for the lucrative syndication package. Based on this, it looks certain, that Scorpion will be renewed for a fourth season.
3/23 update: CBS has renewed Scorpion for a fourth season.

Fans Continue Fight for Netflix to Save CBS’s ‘Scorpion’

Copyright CBS

Scorpion has now been off the air for over a year and fans are stilling continuing their fight for Netflix and other streaming providers to pick it up for season 5. Here’s an overview of the show’s cancellation plus we’ll detail how fans are trying to get the show renewed.

Netflix has been known to revive many shows. Just this year they’ve revived both Designated Survivor and Lucifer from the dead. That’s why when networks cancel shows, Netflix is often the subject of campaigns to revive the show for future seasons. Current big campaigns include Shadowhunters and Deception which was recently cancelled by ABC.

Scorpion is a CBS show which ran for four seasons before being dropped. The show was cancelled in May 2018 and was due to falling viewing figures.

Despite this, a sustained campaign has been raging on.

How you can help get Scorpion saved?

As with many of the biggest TV revival campaigns, there’s a selection of smart fans who manage to mobilize people to help their campaigns. One fan for Scorpion has set up a “#SaveScorpion checklist” which sets out a bunch of different methods of getting noticed and heard by not only Netflix but other networks too.

The checklist includes many methods we’ve promoted in the past. One of the best ways you can get noticed is by using the Netflix title request feature. This forms answers goes directly to Netflix themselves and is often the method promoted by Netflix themselves.

Social media is the next key method. Many for Scorpion are using the hashtag “#SaveScorpion”.

How likely is the show to be revived?

Given each passing day, the chances of the show’s revival grow less and less. Networks tend to revive shows while the iron is still hot. We also have to take into account that Netflix has viewing figures for multiple regions of where Scorpion is streaming and its likely concluded that it’s not worth reviving.

Would you like to see Scorpion saved or do you think the show has had its day and needs to be laid to rest? Let us know in the comments.

Scorpion Season 5: Cancelled or Renewed?

‘Scorpion’ is an action drama television series which is available on CBS. Developed by Nick Santora, the show is loosely based on the life of one its executive producers, Walter O’Brien, and follows O’Brien and his friends as they solve complicated global problems and try to save lives. For those unaware, real-life Walter O’Brien was the source of much controversy, and has made claims which range from him having a genius IQ of 197 to him hacking NASA’s mainframe during childhood. However, most of these claims are contested, and many publications have claimed to have proof that O’Brien’s assertions were nothing but falsehoods.

A pretty old show, Season 1 of ‘Scorpion’ premiered on September 22, 2014, but it did not find much favour among television critics or viewers. Regardless, CBS renewed the show and Season 2 premiered a year later on September 21, 2015, and was received more positively than Season 1. Subsequently, Season 3 made its way to viewers’ screens on October 3, 2016, and it was followed by the premiere of Season 4 on September 25, 2017. While fans of the show had all been waiting for news on a fifth season, it has been confirmed that CBS has cancelled the show. Here’s everything we know about it.

Scorpion Cast: Who is in it?

Being a show which has spanned four seasons, ‘Scorpion’, unsurprisingly, has a long list of cast members, with the main cast members playing characters in Team Scorpion.

In the show, Elyes Gabel plays the role of Walter O’Brien, a genius with an IQ of 197 who was arrested during his childhood for hacking into NASA’s mainframe. Katharine McPhee, meanwhile, plays the role of O’Brien’s team’s office manager Paige Dineen, who simplifies real world problems for the team of geniuses who, in turn, help Paige understand her genius son, Ralph. Further, Eddie Kaye Thomas plays genius Harvard-trained psychiatrist Tobias “Toby” Meriweather Curtis, who serves as the behaviourist of the team. Others in the team include Jadyn Wong as gifted mechanical engineer Happy Quinn, Ari Stidham as gifted mathematician and statistician Sylvester Dodd, Robert Patrick as former US Marine and FBI operative Agent Cabe Gallo, and Riley B. Smith as Paige’s genius son Ralph Dineen.

Additionally, the show has dozens of recurring cast members, some of whom include Camille Guaty as Walter’s sister Megan O’Brien, Brendan Hines as Ralph’s biological father Drew Baker, David Fabrizio as Director of Homeland Security Paul Merrick, Andy Buckley as billionaire technology mogul Richard Elia, Jamie McShane as Happy’s father Patrick Quinn, Joshua Leonard as former Team Scorpion member Mark Collins, Alana de la Garza as Adriana Molina, Kevin Weisman as Walter’s friend Ray Spiewack, Peri Gilpin as Deputy Director of Homeland Security Katherine Cooper, and Lea Thompson as Paige’s mother Veronica Dineen.

Scorpion Plot: What it is about?

As far as the plot of ‘Scorpion’ is concerned, the show, in essence, is a procedural and follows the trials and tribulations of Team Scorpion as they solve complex, hi-tech global threats in a bid to keep humanity safe. Team Scorpion, as is evident, is a team of highly intelligent and skilled people from different backgrounds, and the team, using their diverse skill sets, tackle myriad problems of terrifying complexity primarily for the Department of Homeland Security. In some episodes, we also see Team Scorpion taking on assignments from private individuals and organizations.

Although Season 1 of ‘Scorpion’ did not find much favour among critics, The Hollywood Reporter was an exception, and the publication praised the pilot of the show, writing, “It’s a solidly constructed CBS drama pilot per usual, though it’s overly sentimental in this first hour, pandering and a lot broader than it probably needed to be. But the cast is good and the pilot’s over-the-top nature (there’s an airliner involved) hints at a combination of nerd babble mixed with action and that’s not the worst thing you’ll see on TV this season.” Famed publication Roger Ebert too was not very skeptical about the show, and wrote, “It’s a well-paced diversion after a long Monday night. If you don’t think about its underlying exploitation of mental illness, it’s easy enough to get lost in and forget about the troubles of the real world. And given the lack of truly challenging, intelligent programming on the networks this year, just a chance to escape may be all we should expect.”

As far as general critical reception goes, Season 1 of ‘Scorpion’ managed a poor score of 42% on Rotten Tomatoes, with the critics consensus reading, “Typical procedural plotlines and boring characters using a distracting amount of geek-speak make Scorpion a forgettable show without sting.” Season 2 managed a much better score of 80%, but subsequent seasons of the show are not rated on the website. As far as viewers are concerned, ‘Scorpion’ appears to have impressed viewers, and the show has a decent overall rating of 7.1/10 on IMDb, based on over 42,000 votes.

Scorpion Season 5 Release Date: Cancelled or Renewed?

‘Scorpion’ Season 4 premiered on September 25, 2017. While Season 1 of ‘Scorpion’ had a good average viewership of 13.63 million according to Nielsen, the show’s viewership declined consistently over the years. Season 4, when it released, clocked an average viewership figure of 8.38 million, but despite being impressive in absolute terms, it fared poorly in relative terms, becoming one of the least watched scripted shows on CBS at the time.

It was thus not surprising when CBS, on May 12, 2018, announced that it had pulled the plug on ‘Scorpion’ for good and that no new seasons would be commissioned. So, unless some other network picks up the show, ‘Scorpion’ Season 5 is not happening.

Scorpion Trailer:

While there are no new seasons of ‘Scorpion’ to look forward to, here is a sneak peek into the Season 4 finale to give you a glimpse into the show in case you’ve not watched it and are interested in trying it out.

Buddy Valastro’s empire of cake and pastry just got a little smaller, at least in New Jersey.

When it comes to Bergen and Morris counties, the “Cake Boss” will not be in, not any more.

The Ridgewood and Morristown locations of Carlo’s Bake Shop have closed, confirms Carlo’s spokeswoman Nicole Valdes.

“The leases at the two locations ended and the company chose not to renew,” she tells NJ Advance Media.

Valastro’s fleet of “Cake Boss” bakeries has shrunk by more than just a few crumbs. In August, the bakery chain shuttered another location in Red Bank. That closure followed another in Westfield this past April. There are now three Carlo’s Bake Shops in the state.

The Ridgewood location of Carlo’s Bake Shop, which opened in 2013 in Wilsey Square, was Valastro’s first foray in New Jersey outside of Hoboken. The bakery has been in operation in the Mile Square City since 1910. Valastro’s family took over in 1964, when his father, Bartolo Valastro Sr., bought the bakery.

An expansion of the business followed Valastro’s rise to fame on the TLC reality series “Cake Boss,” which premiered in 2009 and went on to run for 10 seasons. The show, which has filmed at both the original Hoboken bakery and the company’s factory at the Lackawanna Center in Jersey City, did not air in 2018. (Valdes says an 11th season is likely slated for this fall.)

Carlo’s Bake Shop quickly expanded to other states — New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Texas, Florida, Nevada, Minnesota, George, California — as well as Sao Paulo, Brazil. The Morristown location was located on Market Street. A Cake Boss Cafe, which opened in 2011 at the Discovery Times Square Exposition on 44th Street, was the first New York City location. There’s currently a permanent Midtown location at Eighth Avenue and 42nd Street (at the Port Authority Bus Terminal).

“As the brand continues to grow with locations sprinkled all over the country and with an exceptionally robust online bakery making doorstep delivery throughout the continental United States possible, Carlo’s Bakery is shifting (its) focus in 2019 toward introducing new culinary concepts and a strong e-commerce rollout,” Valdes said in a statement. “We’re truly going to miss the Ridgewood and Morristown communities but hope to see our loyal Carlo’s Bakery lovers at our Hoboken and Wayne locations!”

The company ships confections including rainbow cookies, red velvet cake and cannoli nationwide and sells bakeware on its website.

Valastro opened the Ridgewood location of Carlo’s Bake Shop in 2013. It was the first New Jersey shop to open outside of Hoboken. SL

Carlo’s Bake Shops remain open in Hoboken, Wayne and Marlton. The Wayne bakery is located within the Willowbrook Mall.

Valastro, 41, who grew up in Little Ferry, was inducted into the New Jersey Hall of Fame in 2018. “Cake Boss” follows Valastro as he works with fondant, sheet cake and Rice Krispie treats to design and build custom themed cakes with bakery staff, which includes various members of his family. He’s been involved with two “Cake Boss” spinoff series, the reality competition show “Next Great Baker,” which ran for four seasons, and “Kitchen Boss,” which ran for two.

Even though he’s closed several bakeries in New Jersey, Valastro won’t be disappearing from TV anytime soon. He can also be seen on “Bake it Like Buddy,” his reality competition series on Discovery Family, which just wrapped its first season, and he has two new shows premiering in March on the Food Network.

‘The Blacklist’ Renewed for Season 7 by NBC

NBC has renewed its crime drama series “The Blacklist” for a seventh season.

The original cast of the show, including co-leads James Spader and Megan Boone, are all set to return. Season six of the show is currently airing.

“Congratulations to our amazing producers, cast and crew, all of whom continue to work at the top of their game and make ‘’ one of ’s signature series,” said Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, Co-Presidents of Scripted Programming, NBC Entertainment in a statement.

“The Blacklist” is a production of Davis Entertainment in association with Sony Pictures Television and Universal Television, and news of the renewal comes soon after Boone inked a new deal with Sony, alongside original cast members Diego Klatenhoff and Harry Lennix.

It was a massive hit for NBC when it debuted in 2013. In its first two weeks “The Blacklist” averaged a live+same day rating of 3.6, 10-share in adults 18-49 and 12 million viewers. With “The Voice” as its lead-in, the show quickly established itself as the top freshman drama in both demo and total viewers, and would become the No. 1 new scripted series launched by NBC during the 2013-14 season.

To date, season six of the show is averaging a 1.2 rating in adults 18-49 and 7.3 million viewers overall in L+7 ratings, according to Nielsen. “The Blacklist” has regularly been a strong performer in delayed viewing, growing by 119% going from live+same day to L+7 Nielsens in adults 18-49 (from a 0.57 rating to a 1.25) and by 3.4 million persons (3.9 million to 7.3 million).

Spader also serves as an EP on the show, alongside Jon Bokenkamp, John Eisendrath, John Davis, John Fox, Lukas Reiter, J.R. Orci, Carla Kettner and Laura A. Benson.

EXCLUSIVE: NBC has given an early Season 7 renewal to veteran thriller drama The Blacklist, from Davis Entertainment, Sony Pictures TV and Universal TV.

I hear the pickup had been in the works for awhile. Standard broadcast series’ cast contracts are for six years. While I hear The Blacklist star James Spader had renegotiated his deal early on, adding an extra year, the rest of the show’s original cast members’ contracts were up at the end of the current sixth season. I hear over the past several months, Sony TV inked new pacts with co-lead Megan Boone and the other two original series regular cast members Diego Klatenhoff and Harry Lennix. Securing the core cast paved the way to a Season 7 renewal.

The Blacklist was a massive hit when it debuted on NBC in 2013 behind The Voice on Monday. It took a hit when the network in Season 2 relocated it to shore up Thursday night, using a post-Super Bowl airing to give it a pop. While The Blacklist never came close to the ratings heights of its first season on Monday, it has been a relatively consistent ratings performer, boosted by solid DVR gains. It has been a reliable utility player which had been assigned 5 different time slots on four different nights over its six seasons to day, most recently Friday 9 PM this season.

Airing on a low-trafficked Friday night, The Blacklist is averaging a respectable 1.2 rating in adults 18-49 and 7.3 million viewers overall in Live+7 Nielsen ratings. It’s been a strong delayed gainer, growing by 119% from Live+Same Day to L+7 in adults 18-49 (from a 0.57 rating to a 1.25) and by 3.4 million viewers (3.9 million to 7.3 million).

The Blacklist is also this season’s #1 most upscale drama on the Big 4 networks among adults 18-49 living in homes with $100K+ incomes, indexing at a 140 among those viewers in L+7 results, which is important when selling advertising.

Additionally, because of NBCUniversal’s ownership in the show (initially 25%, increased to 50% early in the series’ run), NBC has a financial incentive to keep The Blacklist on the air. The show also is a big profits generator for Sony TV from international sales and the lucrative SVOD pact with Netflix.

“Congratulations to our amazing producers, cast and crew, all of whom continue to work at the top of their game and make The Blacklist one of NBC’s signature series,” said Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, Co-Presidents of Scripted Programming, NBC Entertainment.

In addition to Spader, Boone, Klattenhoff and Lennix, The Blacklist also stars Amir Arison, Mozhan Marnò and Hisham Tawfiq.

Jon Bokenkamp, John Eisendrath, John Davis, John Fox, James Spader, Lukas Reiter, J.R. Orci, Carla Kettner and Laura A. Benson serve as executive producers.

It seems Raymond Reddington’s life will be spared, after all: NBC has renewed The Blacklist for a seventh season, TVLine has confirmed.

According to our sister site Deadline, which first broke the news, The Blacklist‘s core cast members — including James Spader, Megan Boone, Diego Klattenhoff and Harry Lennix — all will be back for Season 7.

“Congratulations to our amazing producers, cast and crew, all of whom continue to work at the top of their game and make The Blacklist one of NBC’s signature series,” said Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, co-presidents of scripted programming at NBC.

Season 6 of The Blacklist is currently airing Fridays at 9/8c. In the drama’s most recent outing on March 8, Spader’s Red pleaded guilty to the numerous criminal charges against him and was sentenced to death — a fate made even more worrying after he failed to escape prison later in the episode. (But given Spader’s commitment to Season 7, we’ll just assume the forthcoming lethal injection doesn’t go down as planned.)

Thus far this season — its first one airing on Fridays — The Blacklist is averaging a 0.6 demo rating and about 4 million total viewers, besting only Blindspot and the already axed Midnight, Texas among all NBC dramas. With Live+7 DVR playback, those numbers swell to 1.2 and 7.3 million.

An episode count for Season 7 was not announced.
