Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has yet to be officially renewed for the 2014-15 season, with high costs and low ratings could S.H.I.E.L.D. be one and done…
No WINTER SOLDIER Ratings Bump for AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.
Despite playing directly off the feature film with the biggest April box office opening of all time and a flurry of promos and free media over the weekend into Tuesday playing up the connection, the success of Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier hasn’t moved the needle for ABC’s Marvels Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. … at least not yet.
Viewers didn’t seem to immediately respond to what was billed as an unprecedented film/TV crossover and a series-changing episode, as “Turn, Turn, Turn” turned in the freshmen drama’s second lowest ratings yet. The overnight ratings show a 1.9/6 rating in the key 18-49 demo, down 15% against its April 1 episode and third in its timeslot vs. NBC’s The Voice (2.8/9) and CBS’s NCIS (2.6/8).
