The problem with being on after the Superbowl is that the actual time is not set. It varies with the time the post game festivities take. I rarely watch the game. I'm a fan of The Blacklist but I'm not going to waste time waiting around for it to start. Nor can I set my PVR as I don't know what starting time to program. My hope is that the new episode shown after the game will be repeated on Feb. 5. Sometimes the networks do that.

Reidw, can you set your DVR to just record a certain channel at a certain time (regardless of the program), and end it at a (much later) time? So have it start recording whatever channel Global is on at 10pm and have it end at around 1am. Then the next day you can just fast-forward to when The Blacklist starts.

The Blacklist post-Super Bowl schedule and ratings

As an indication of the post-Super Bowl ratings boost, here are the U.S. and Canadian overnight ratings for The Blacklist in millions of viewers. I compared the Nov. 3 broadcast since I was able to find Canadian overnight ratings for that date (Numeris publically publishes Canadian 7-day ratings).

Date .................. U.S. Canada
Mon 11/03/2014 9.300 1.380
Sun 02/01/2015 25.720 .929

Note that Global scheduled The Blacklist for 10:15 and followed that schedule, while NBC didn't start the show until after the post-game at 10:38. Since there wasn't a simsub, Numeris would only have counted the Global ratings and not the NBC viewers. Note that U.S. viewers went from 9.3 for a typical broadcast to over 25 million, while Canada went down since the NBC viewers weren't counted.

As jeffaustin90 pointed out, there isn't usually much long-term benefit, but it certainly helps for that one night. Also kudos to Global for following the schedule for all the people who recorded the program, even though they gave up the simsub and a lot of viewers for the commercials that pay for the program.

I updated the summer schedule to clarify conflicts. Rookie Blue will only conflict with Under The Dome's two-hour premiere on Thursday, June 25. However, the Big Brother live eviction show will start on July 2 at 9 pm, so Global will probably move Rookie Blue to a different night since Food Fighters is at 8 pm.. Note that Rookie Blue only has 11 episodes left and this may be the end of the series.

These are a few of the last episodes of season 1 for Stalker.

The series isn't expected to be renewed.
