ABC Picks Up Agents of SHIELD for Full Season

by at . Comments

Look out, bad guys: Marvel's Agents of SHIELD will be fighting crime well into 2014.

Despite a steady decrease in ratings since its series premiere, has picked up the freshman program for a full season of 22 episodes.

The Agents of SHIELD

Agents of SHIELD debuted on September 24 to 12.1 million viewers and a 4.7 rating among young adults.

Last night's installment, however netted just 7.9 million, but its 18-49-year old viewership actually edged out NCIS in the 8 p.m. hour.

Through three weeks, Agent Coulson and company rank at the number-one new show of the fall season among the these young adults, averaging a 4.0 rating that actually increases to 5.7 when Live+3 DVR playback is factored in.

I watched the first episode and honestly expected more. Then watched the 2 after that and still expected more. I guess I am not much of Marvel fan as I hoped. I love DC characters for their darkness. For Marvel fans it is great to see it got a full season though.

Anyhow, I must admit I'm glad they got picked up for another season. Even though I'm a solid DC fan myself, that doesn't me I hate Marvel or anything in the sense.

Neejan

Marvel needs to start working on their credibility if they want to maintain a steady viewership. The ending with the flying car (Lola) was just too much purposeless TV time.

The only reason this show was made was because of the moron who throw a huss fit that Colson was kill in the movie Im sorry but Marvel is not DC comics they don't have any character that look good on a TV live action Budget maybe if their character didn't have God like powers it would be different but the only believeable one would be Caption American.
