At the same time, we observe quite appropriate television ratings of the current season (given the fact that the viewing audience is usually decreasing from season to season). The premiere of Season 4 has drawn 6.397 million viewers (-17.62% compared to last season’s premiere) with a 1.30 demo rating (-28.96%) among adults (18-49).

Though we regard these figures as a slight decrease of the viewing audience, but, nonetheless, this is a quite significant decrease of viewers compared to the Season 1 premiere.
As for reception by critics and viewers, it still remains very positive. Currently, according to IMDB, “The Blacklist” has an overall score of 8.2 out of 10 based on over 110,600 user votes, 256 reviews from viewers, and 28 reviews from critics.
