Fall’s buzziest new drama had a super-powered premiere Tuesday night: ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. — a show so big it takes two company names to officially describe it — delivered 11.9 million viewers and a 4.6 adults 18-49 rating. That makes S.H.I.E.L.D. TV’s highest-rated drama debut in nearly four years (since ABC’s Vpremiere in November, 2009).
That adult demo number is particular impressive given the show’s time slot.

S.H.I.E.L.D.

Nathan Fillion, Seth Mcfarlane, Garfunkle and Oats, Adam Savage - this is like Nerdvana! If you enjoy good interviews and entertaining banter, you need to subscribe to his YouTube channel NOW!
