AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Matches Ratings Low In Mid-Season Return

The mid-season premiere of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. matched the mid-season finale in the coveted 18-49 demographic. However, overall viewership is up and the show should receive a boost once DVR ratings are factored.

Per TV by the Numbers, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returned with a new episode on Tuesday but to modest ratings. The mid-season premiere matched the mid-season finale as the lowest ratings for the show, garnering a meager 2.1 rating in the coveted 18-49 demographic that advertisers crave. Overall viewership is up however, at 6.5 million viewers. However, a prime time network television show's success is often judged by how much of the 18-49 age demographic it can command. One thing to take into consideration is that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has done very well in DVR ratings, typically receiving a nice overnight boost to it's initial score.
