An interesting breakdown of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s ratings suggest that it's not doing nearly as bad as some would claim.

Very interesting. I think it shows promise of a season two depending on how things play out. That being said, cost is still a factor worth considering. Programs with lower ratings but higher profit margins are obviously more valuable. I would imagine AoS has a pretty large budget.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

I don't believe that article mentioned the huge bump in the last episode was because NCIS was a rerun that week.

It mentioned the rerun, but not in context of the bump. I don't think it remotely changes its point, but it does at least explain that giant spike. It suggests that if this show were on another night and didn't compete against NCIS, it might have even better ratings. That being said, it's probably best finishing second to NCIS (which it can't be realistically expected to beat) while being safe from competing against other heavy hitters.

Yes, it did...

One very significant note about these charts: the 6th episode of "NCIS" season 11 aired without a new "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." episode opposite it; and episode 9 of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." aired without a new "NCIS."

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

It also said this:
While it's unknown exactly what contributed the the recent bump in ratings and viewers of last week's episode, there are two major factors that may explain the upwards trend. First, the impending Thanksgiving holiday, where viewers may have begun vacationing early, giving them more free time to tune in. Second, the previous episode's tie-in to "Thor: The Dark World" likely helped as well.
You would think that would be an appropriate place to mention that NCIS was a rerun. After all, it might be a factor.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

I know the only reason I watched Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D. live last week, instead of on Hulu like usual, is because NCIS, which I usually watch, was a repeat.

Hehe, the police chief on Grimm referenced going to Tahiti tonight. I guess it is a magical place.

That's an encouraging article. I'd love to see this show get a second season, as long as they don't re-tool it to appeal to the lowest denominator.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

Isn't it pretty much already tooled to the lowest common denominator?

I think that most of us who follow the show have expressed the opinion at one time or another that it could use a little retooling, whatever denominator they're going for.

Thanks for bringing this over. It does indeed add perspective and Sleepy Hollow is the only other new show I've committed to watching as well which made it even more interesting.

Be curious to see what the Cap:WS lead in will be in March and how they end the first half of the season...is that next week or will we get one or two more?

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

It's gotta be next week. If not, they've done a terrible job of promoting the episode that comes after because we don't even have a title yet.

Plus, they seem to definitely be setting up a cliffhanger of sorts.
