TV Ratings Report: The Originals Rise, Dads Isn't a Dud

by at . Comments

It was a return to regular form for NCIS last night, as the CBS juggernaut defeated Marvel's Agents of SHIELD in both total viewers and those between the ages of 18 and 49.

Elsewhere: The Originals hit an early series high, while Supernatural dropped just a bit and, depressingly, Dads showed signs of life...

Genuinely happy for The Originals :)


How about the fact that a Scandal RE-RUN got 2.7 million viewers? Seeing as ABC has had trouble with that time slot (I personally think they should have kept 'Body of Proof', oh well), this should show them that they need something that will appeal to the political thriller crowd (and a good dose of soap opera doesn't hurt). And NCIS will stay #1 as long as they don't dishonor their audience. Not killing Ziva off was the best show-of-faith that the writers could do.


Awesome it proves just because a great character leaves it still has some great Character and writing NCIS is still 1 in the ratings


NCIS for the win. Harmon was right: it's up to them to stay #1 and I think they are on the right track. I've been disappointed in SHIELD. *crossing fingers* it will spark with me again. I'll give it another episode.
