Agents of SHIELD Ratings

Ratings: ABC's S.H.I.E.L.D. Rebounds on Charlie Brown-Boosted Night

Leading out of a Charlie Brown/Toy Story twofer that strongly outperformed last week’s Muppets/Fresh Off the Boat combo, ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. this Tuesday drew 3.9 million total viewers and a 1.5 demo rating (per finals), ticking up on both counts after several weeks of declines.

For those keeping score, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown drew 6 mil and a 2.0, while Toy Story of Terror! did 5 mil/1.6.

Elsewhere in the ratings….

CBS | NCIS (17.2 mil/2.2) and NCIS: New Orleans (12.8 mil/1.6) ticked up, while Limitless (7.9 mil/1.4) was flat.

THE CW | The Flash (3.5 mil/1.4) and iZombie (1.3 mil/0.5) were both steady. (Got iZombie Qs? Email InsideLine@tvline.com ASAP!)

NBC | Best Time Ever (4.8 mil/1.2) was flat, The Voice (11.3 mil/2.7) ticked up and Chicago Fire (7.6 mil/1.6) slipped two tenths from its season opener.

FOX | Grandfathered (3.3 mil/1.0), The Grinder (2.9 mil/0.9) and Scream Queens (2.6 mil/1.0) all inched up in audience while steady in the demo.

    Wow, Limitless. I hate to see what the numbers will look like in the spring.

    • Win says:

      I wonder if the ratings will rise due to the additional Bradley Cooper cameo next week.

      • Ellinas1978 says:

        Of course they will, that’s why they are bringing him in. He’ll probably be on for 3 minutes again and that’s what I’ll watch skipping another ridiculous case-of-the-week. And then they’ll flash-back to his appearance for the rest of the episodes until spring sweeps.

    The Flash has really good numbers for a CW show, no? Is it their highest rated show?

  3. Mr. Tran K says:

    Hope Limitless gets a full season pick-up soon but what are the chances?

  4. kmw says:

    I suppose that’s good that the FOX shows inched up in HH and steady in demo but they still aren’t great numbers. Good old Charlie Brown is always reliable. Good for Shield that it went up and good for Flash. Nothing else too surprising.

  5. Gerri says:

    Why are people questioning LImitless when it’s numbers are double Agents of Shield. I fear more for that show. It is a no brainer to give limitless a full season order.

    • d4h8a15r16m23a42 says:

      Different networks. On ABC a 1.5 isn’t that bad, while on CBS a 1.3 is very low.

      • Ellinas1978 says:

        For CBS it’s not that bad actually. They’ve proven they don’t case that much about the demo (NCIS-franchise).

        Don’t get me wrong if there is a potential new show that’s going to be kept off the air because of Limitless, I say cancel Limitless, not interested in case-of-the-week shows but that’s not going to happen.

      • Neemo says:

        Ugh…it was low for cbs couple of years ago. Nowdays they have only one drama above 2. Its pretty bad year for all networks, especially cbs and fox

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      Doesn’t matter how a CBS show compares to an ABC show. The only “competition” is within the same network.

    • JJ says:

      in addition to the comments already made about comparing networks. You’re also focusing on the wrong number. Limitless is doubling Agents of Shield’s overall viewers. But roughly the same in the demo (and this week lower in the demo). The demo is still the priority for advertisers and consequently the number that networks are most focused on.

    As long as Marvel movies live Shield will survive to use as a marketing strategy or at least until the Inhumans movie comes out in 2019.
