‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Makes Strong Ratings Debut
ABC’s “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” premiered to an impressively-sized audience Tuesday night, bringing in 12.2 million viewers in the 18-49 demographic, according to industry website TVbythenumbers.com.
It still wasn’t enough to beat NBC’s “The Voice”, which came in first with 14.4 million in the demo. However, “S.H.I.E.L.D.” did manage to beat out CBS’s “NCIS”, which drew 3.6 million viewers.
However, in case you may have missed it Tuesday, fear not. ABC announced Wednesday that it will repeat the premiere episode Thursday night at 7 p.m., replacing a previously-scheduled repeat of “Shark Tahk”.
The news wasn’t all good for ABC, though. “Lucky 7″, a drama about a group of co-workers who win the lottery, was the network’s lowest-rated drama ever, finishing dead last against “Chicago Fire” and “Person of Interest”, making it a prime candidate for a quick cancellation.
