Gaith, thanks, now I have the weight of the world on my shoulders. Perhaps Atlas should shrug? LOL. Seriously, though NCIS is about the characters a much as anything else. And isn't that what keeps Star Trek going too, the characters?
Captain, as I said, I don't know if Neilsen keeps track of DVR and online watching, if so, then it shouldn't be a problem. And, yes scheduling something against something else very popular is still a big deal. I don't imagine Shield just catching on with younger folks either. C'mon guys, I'm very interested and I was collecting comics back in the days when you could still get Sgt Rock and Easy Co comics. Don't forget that this show will be based on a very well established (read old) comic entity. Nick Fury has been around since WWII.
