    Gosh ABC, see what happens with a strong 8-9 pm lead in? The Flash was a fantastic episode. Can’t wait for Arrow tonight.

    Glad both AoS and Flash did well. As a side note – I wish you guys would go back to doing AoS recaps. Last night’s show was great but so heartbreaking in so many ways…

      Yes please!! Recaps for Shield would be the best!

    • Christina says:

      Totally agree! I miss those recaps here.

    • Donna MaMa says:

      if you need a Shield recap, EW.com has it, along with Supernatural and The Originals, since this site stopped the latter 2’s weekly recap. Just click on TC Recaps and select. Not sure why this site is not recapping these shows they did in the beginning of the season, maybe not enough people. Sons wraps up next week, maybe that person recapping will give us back AoS or supernatural or The Originals

    Really happy for SHIELD and Forever. Hope this continues

  5. Jimoy says:

    NCIS had the most total viewers despite being a repeat It would be interesting to see what some of these shows would do without going up against CBS Tuesday lineup.

    Fantastic that SHIELD and Forever are ticking up! They are two fantastic shows that not enough people are watching. Good news for Arrow as well, but that one is already a success and tonight’s numbers are just icing on the cake.

    • Moment says:

      Forever is quite the anomaly. It has quite a decent DVR following yet the live numbers just aren’t very good. It’s adding a good 3.5 million viewers and a single ratings point in the L+7 to every episode. It’s performing like a successful show would in the L+7.

  7. HeatherC says:

    I was hoping for a bigger bump to Chicago Fire last night but those are still solid numbers overall. Really happy to see SHIELD do so well! That show’s been great this season. =)

    Forever went UP!

    So i finally watched Shield now that Season 1 is on Netflix. And i got to say it is very good after you get past the 1st 5 or so episodes. Really sucks that they didnt put season 1 out in the summer so people could catch up before the new season
