I can't help but think that NBC is purposely sabotaging Blindspot. I love this show, I look forward to watch it every week and I miss it terribly when it's on hiatus. Do you think that NBC is purposely sabotaging the show? I read somewhere that NBC and Blindspot are supposed to meet on April 5th to talk about the future of the show but idk how accurate that information is.
I don’t know… are they purposely sabotaging it and want it to fail? I don’t know but did they totally screw if up this year? Yes. I think what happened was that it did so well in its first season that NBC felt this show would do well wherever and whenever they put it and without any extra help from he network. And that is a big mistake. First of all, all shows have a slump in their second year. That’s a well known fact. And blindspot was going to be the same. And second, the time slot that they gave it, besides being a horrible time slot where any show would suffer, is also very very inappropriate for the type of show that it is. And then whoever was in charge of the scheduling did a terrible job with it. All these random breaks are not doing it any favors. And finally, everyone can see that as the season progressed, the promos have become less and less, barely airing any.
Is it all being done on purpose or a series of very bad decisions? I don’t know but yes, the Blindspot show runners and the NBC execs do have a meeting pretty soon (or did it happen last week?) about the future of the show. And I hope NBC make the right decision because (and I know I’m biased here) but this show deserves to be renewed and more importantly deserves to be treated much much better by the network.
