Unlike NBC's other post-Voice drama premieres, State of Affairs premieres very late in The Voice's season. So not only does it have a limited time with that lead-in, but it also doesn't start out with the benefit of the much stronger blind auditions. Tonight, The Voice is likely to be in the low 3's (it got just a 3.2 last week), which may set up SoA for a lower debut than the other dramas. Though I'm not seeing Blacklist potential for this show, I think the rather exhaustive promotion gets the premiere very close to recent The Blacklist deliveries (which have gotten 2.4-2.5ish).
