Review: 'Blacklist' wows, 'Hostages' tries but fails
Following the success of shows as disparate as "Homeland," "House of Cards" and "Scandal," our nation's capital has become the thrilling center of the universe, and politics has become the new police precinct. Two of the more anticipated shows of this fall season, "Hostages" on CBS and "The Blacklist" on NBC, follow D.C.-based stories and face off, beginning Monday at 10 p.m.
