The Blacklist Back on TV3’s Hit List

The Blacklist's Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone) gets her day in court when season three resumes.

The Blacklist’s Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone) at last gets her day in court.

TV3 will resume The Blacklist on February 3 on a double-bill with the season two premiere of Chicago PD.

The network had scheduled the movie Sione’s 2: Unfinished Business in the slot but will now shift the sequel forward to January 27, pre-empting a repeat of Australia.

The return of The Blacklist is overdue given it’s streaming in SD on 3Now.

Moreover, leaving it off-air any later risked fans switching their allegiance to TV1’s Blindspot (8.30 Sunday), which, as The Hollywood Reporter observed, contains “Blacklist DNA“.

It’s also bad faith to keep the faithful waiting so long when previous seasons have aired within the same week as the US — especially when only movies, and not more pressing programming, have been delaying Blacklist’s comeback.

The same is true of TV2 holding back The Big Bang Theory after screening the first half of the latest season within a few days of CBS.

Unlike less popular shows, TVNZ doesn’t stream TBBT on-demand, which is understandable but patently absurd when the show’s reached such a pivotal point in its nine-year run: the consummation of Sheldon and Amy’s relationship.

Anyone who’s used a geo-blocker to stream it from the CBS site will have been rewarded with one of the funniest, sweetest Big Bangs yet.
