In total viewers, "The Blacklist" built on last night's lead-in by +57% while ABC is growing by +20% and CBS and Fox are declining.

· "The Blacklist" jumped by +70% versus NBC's 18-49 season average in the time period prior to "Blacklist" (1.7 vs. 1.0, L+SD non-sports) and is up +116% versus NBC's total-viewer season average in the hour (7.979 million vs. 3.689 million).

· "Allegiance" (0.7/2 in 18-49, 3.6 million viewers overall from 10-11 p.m. ET) will increase substantially in L+3 -- The prior week's "Allegiance" grew by +48% in L+3 vs. L+SD in 18-49 rating (1.07 to 1.58) and in total viewers by 2.2 million persons (5.0 million to 7.2 million).

· Upscale: "Allegiance'" is currently the most upscale new drama on the Big 4 networks so far this season, indexing at a 145 for adults 18-49 living in homes with $100K+ incomes (100 represents an average concentration of those homes, "most current" including L+3).
