Holding Out For A Hero? MARVEL'S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Ratings Continue To Slip
Despite now being five episodes into its first season, the ratings for Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. still haven't levelled out as viewing figures continue to drop on a week by week basis. Is the ABC series destined for one season only? Read on for details!
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. may have had the biggest drama premiere of the past four years when it debuted last month, but the record number of people who tuned in for the pilot clearly haven't been impressed enough over the past few weeks to stick around. Last night, the fifth episode had 7.1 million viewers and a 2.6 rating among adults 18-49. This is by no means a bad result for that slot, but the numbers are falling each week. After starting off with 3.3, it went to 2.9, 2.8 and now a 2.6. At this point, ratings just haven't levelled out (which is unusual for a new series in its fifth week). ABC have already given Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. a full season order, but if these numbers continue to fall, it may not have much of a future.
