Despite killer episode, "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." falls to series ratings low

agents-of-shield-hydraEven with all the hype of last night’s game-changing episode that actually did change the entire dynamic of “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD,” the show had its worst rating of the season. That’s a bit surprising considering how much ABC touted that Tuesday’s episode tied directly in to “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” which is safe to assume a few people saw in theaters this past weekend.

What’s wrong you people? It’s gotten really good!

Seriously, when the show was spinning its wheels it deserved the apathy it earned, but I’m a huge fan of filmmakers/show runners taking to heart feedback and making changes to a lackluster product. “SHIELD” is a great example of that and I’d hate for ABC, a network not exactly renown for its patience with shows that get massive ratings and actually need time to build an audience, to not renew it for another season.

ABC is replaying last night’s episode next week at 8 p.m. with a new episode set for 9 p.m. so there’s still time to catch it and not be completely in the dark come next week.
