TORONTO, May 13, 2014 /CNW/ - Global once again stole Monday night with the jaw-dropping finale of The Blacklist. Drawing in more than 1.5 million viewers (2+) and more than 650,000 viewers (A18-49), the season's breakout hit won the night across all key demos.

Last night's gripping season finale found the city on lockdown following the crash of the mysterious prisoner transport plane, and authorities on the hunt for all the escapees. Meanwhile, with Red (James Spader) in custody, Liz (Megan Boone) used her power to get him out since he's their best chance at finding their main target, Berlin, a prisoner on the plane who is somehow involved.

  • The Blacklist wins the 10 p.m. timeslot, besting CTV by 40% (A18-49)
