Reduced lead-in support from “The Blacklist” did not notably shake NBC’s “Shades Of Blue,” which held steady in adults 18-49 and nearly matched last week’s total viewership figure.

Per Nielsen L+SD data, Thursday’s “Shades” drew a 1.1 adults 18-49 rating and 5.287 million total viewers. Last week’s broadcast posted a 1.1 with 5.399 million in total viewership.

Among adults 18-49, “Shades Of Blue” was its timeslot’s #2 network program. It trailed “How To Get Away With Murder” (1.5) but beat “Elementary” (1.0).

NBC led into “Shades” with the aforementioned “Blacklist.” Down from last week’s 1.4 with 6.437 million, it posted a 1.3 with 6.023 million.

Earlier in the night, the network aired “You, Me & The Apocalypse” (0.6, 2.567 million this week vs. 0.8, 2.967 million last week).
