Oct 2 2013, 4:36am CDT | by ABC News Radio

The Hollywood Reporter says NBC won this past Monday’s primetime battle.  It’s lineup of The Voice and The Blacklist averaged 13.5 million viewers for the night, compared to ABC’s combination of Dancing with the Stars and Castle, which averaged 12.2 million.  CBS’ Monday night lineup of How I Met Your Mother, the new comedy We Are Men, 2 Broke Girls, Mom and Hostages, averaged 6.8 million viewers.

Here’s a rundown of the top ten primetime shows for the week of Sept. 23-29, according to The Nielsen Company:

We’re especially lucky that some cult leader hasn’t gotten a hold of that virus, got his followers to become infected by it before getting on flights to spread it around. Now that’s a really scary thought. And I’ve got to hand it to this particular episode fo ...

The Blacklist Season 2 Episode 3 Review: Dr. James Covington

Oct 6 2014 10:46pm CDT | Source: TV Fanatic

Liz is definitely more on edge, more hardened in The Blacklist Season 2 than compared with The Blacklist Season 1. Ressler knows it, Red knows it, even Cooper knows it.
