Apparently good word of mouth over recent events in AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D., as well as doing everything possible to promote the show including a special 2-hour block, paid off as Episode 18 posted a 2.1 rating in the 18-49 year old demographic and garnered 5.52 million viewers (courtesy of tvbythenumbers). The 2.1 rating ties the highest since the Winter Olympics, although the 5.52 million viewers is still on the lower end of viewership. I expect younger east coast viewers are going to have to catch the episode on DVR.
Still, that’s mostly good news. The latest rumors stating that AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. will get renewed for season 2 with a shorter season of AGENT CARTER bridging the gap between Autumn and Spring is likely going to happen. I’m expecting that there still will be some changes in store for season 2, but stabilizing around a 2.0 ensures that there will be a season 2.
We’ll see if they’re able to build on this recent momentum or if it’s just going to be a holding pattern until the finale. Stringing together a bunch of episodes with raised stakes and twists and turns is the best thing that the show can do for itself. The show doesn’t have the luxury of resting on its recent laurels.
It wasn’t supposed to work out like this. Tying in with CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER was supposed to reignite interest in the series and lead to substantially higher ratings. Instead, early overnights has AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. at a series low 1.7 rating in the 18-49 year old demographic and 4.91 million viewers overall (courtesy of tvbythenumbers). So what happened?

AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. returned Tuesday night with the first of seven straight new episodes including the season finale. On the hunt for Deathlok and The Clairvoyant, the team is joined by a who’s who of previous guest starring agents. Things are heating up as this episode sets the stage for CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER.
AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. returns for its homestretch run without guest stars or other obvious audience boosting strategies and received a series low 1.8 rating in the 18-49 year old demographic and 5.39 million viewers overall based on early overnights (based on tvbythenumbers.com). I won’t be surprised if that’s bumped up slightly when final numbers come in, but nobody involved can be very happy about those numbers. Continue reading
