Monday Night Ratings: THE BLACKLIST remains strong
THE BLACKLIST held up nicely at 10 p.m., averaging 11.4 million viewers and a 3.3 in the demo—a retention rate of 87 percent week to week.

(The show’s 18-49 rating dropped 16 percent as the night progressed.)

After premiering last week to an unspectacular 7.41 million viewers and a 1.8 in the demo, CBS’ thriller HOSTAGES returned to just 5.96 million viewers and a 1.5 rating. While the pilot jumped 50 percent to a 2.7 upon application of three days of DVR playback, HOSTAGES does not look long for this world.

"If this episode in fact took place in reality, it was troubling, and yes, disappointing, if only because the story ended by confirming Walt’s most grandiose notions: that he is, in fact, all-powerful, the smartest guy in the room, the one who knocks. Anyone other than Walt becomes a mere reflection of this journey to redemption."
