Ratings: NBC’s “Blindspot” Holds Steady in Demo, Gains in Viewership

Despite facing stronger-than-usual competition from CBS, Monday’s “Blindspot” matched last week’s adults 18-49 rating and enjoyed a slight lift in total viewership.

Monday’s episode, which was the NBC drama’s sixth broadcast, posted what Nielsen reports as a 2.1 adults 18-49 rating with 7.906 million viewers.

The previous week’s broadcast delivered a 2.1 with 7.817 million viewers.

Whereas last week’s episode faced its usual CBS timeslot competitor “NCIS: Los Angeles,” this week’s episode battled an extended edition of the higher-rated “Scorpion.”

“Scorpion” topped “Blindspot” in total viewership, but the new NBC series again raked as its timeslot’s top broadcast network program in adults 18-49.

Clearly down from its September 21 series premiere levels (3.1, 10.61 million), “Blindspot” is still performing admirably by modern TV standards. It also receives significant weekly upticks from DVR viewership.

Earlier this month, NBC booked “Blindspot” for a complete first season.

— NBC’s Monday night lineup also included “The Voice” (3.1, 11.877 million).
