    Three North Texas fans of "The Blacklist"  tracked down a Red Reddington look-alike and won big money Wednesday.

    In anticipation of "The Blacklist" moving to Thursday nights, NBC launched a "Red Is on the Run to Thursdays" scavenger hunt in 25 cities this week, including Dallas on Wednesday.

    Fans went on a scavenger hunt to find Red Reddington decoys, wearing his signature suit and fedora hat, in their city by solving the clues on the show's social media handles.

    The first clue went out on Twitter at 2:30 p.m.

    The second tweet went out at 3:30 p.m.

    The photo helped three people figure out that they needed to head to Hotel ZaZa in Dallas.

    By 4:30 p.m. three winners were announced in Dallas.

    Clara Poole was the first person to find the Red decoy she won $500, Grant Brandon was second and won $300 and Shaquinta Brewer was third taking $200.

    The scavenger hunt moves to New York, Seattle, Atlanta, Charlotte, Phoenix and Raleigh on Thursday.

    On Thursday, Feb. 5, fans can also participate in a $25,000 tune-in-and-win sweepstakes by visiting and answering a question about the episode. Fans can enter once a day through Monday, Feb. 9, at 2:59 p.m. ET.

    "The Blacklist" returned to the NBC schedule on Super Bowl Sunday. The series then shifts to its new timeslot beginning Thursday, Feb. 5, at 8 p.m. CT.

    For decades, ex-government agent Raymond "Red" Reddington (James Spader) has been one of the FBI's Most Wanted fugitives. Brokering shadowy deals for criminals across the globe, Red was known by many as "The Concierge of Crime." Last season, he mysteriously surrendered to the FBI but now the FBI work for him as he identifies a "blacklist" of politicians, mobsters, spies and international terrorists. He will help catch them all... with the caveat that Elizabeth "Liz" Keen (Megan Boone) continues to work as his partner. Red will teach Liz to think like a criminal and "see the bigger picture"... whether she wants to or not. Also starring are Diego Klattenhoff, Harry Lennix, Amir Arison and Mozhan Marno. Jon Bokenkamp, John Eisendrath, John Davis, John Fox and Michael Watkins serve as executive producers. "The Blacklist" is a production of Sony Pictures Television and Davis Entertainment.
