'The Blacklist' Post-Superbowl Episode Will Be A Two Parter

The highest rated drama telecast ever to air after the Super Bowl was ABC’s Thursday 9 PM series Grey’s Anatomy in 2006, during the show’s second season. The episode, crafted as the opening hour of a two-part storyline, 37.9 million viewers, with the conclusion on Thursday also garnering blockbuster ratings. NBC’s head of scheduling Jeff Bader, who orchestrated the Grey’s Super Bowl scheduling while at ABC, is taking a page out of that rule book with The Blacklist. Also in its second and about to move into the Thursday 9 PM slot, The Blacklist landed the post-Super Bowl spot on Feb. 1 before it makes its Thursday debut on Feb. 5. At NBC’s upfront presentation today, chairman Bob Greenblatt announced that the Feb. 1 and Feb. 5 episodes will be a two-part arc, clearly intended to give The Blacklist‘s Thursday premiere a hefty boost.
