Matt Webb Mitovich

NBC’s already renewed Blindspot returned from its five-week benching to 3 million viewers and a 0.4 demo rating, right on par with its previous, pre-sweeps airing. Leading out of that, Dateline (3.7 mil/0.6) topped the first Friday of “summer” in the demo.

Over on ABC, Agents of SHIELD (2.4 mil/0.5) ticked up with its third episode of the season.
