We are now a few days removed from the season 1 finale of “Blindspot,” and in terms of the story, we have at least some idea as to where things are going to go from here. Specifically, most indications that are out there suggest that the new season is going to get things going by revealing more details when it comes to who Jane Doe really is. Also, get ready for a little bit more exploration of the Jane / Weller relationship, and there’ll probably be a few interesting characters who turn up, as well.
Now that we’ve touched on all of this, let’s deal with something aside from the story that is going to be important for the second season: A new timeslot. Throughout all of season 1, “Blindspot” had the luxury of airing new episodes after “The Voice.” Given that this is one of the best lead-ins on TV, it probably proved to be a valuable asset.
Now, the Jaimie Alexander show is moving to Wednesday nights at 8:00, where the only lead-in is syndicated programming across NBC stations. The show has never aired without “The Voice,” so it’s hard to pinpoint how connected the two audiences really are.
Do we think that the series is in any danger? Not really. While the ratings were down significantly at the end of season 1 versus the start of the season, we think most of the people watching by the end were people who care very much about the show. Therefore, we anticipate that most of these people will keep watching the show now in its new spot.
Ultimately, we think so long as the show gets above a 1.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic on average through season 2, NBC will likely be reasonably satisfied.
