Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D Loses Over 3 Million Viewers for Mid-Season Finale



With NCIS back on the air after taking a break last week for Rudolph, Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. lost all the viewers - and then some - that came over as a result of the NCIS off week.

Last week saw Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. score 9.3 million viewers. Yesterday's mid-season finale brought in 6.11 million viewers.

That number is acually lower than previous week as well, which came in at 6.89 million.

So not taking into account last week's bump due to NCIS - SHIELD still lost over 700,000 viewers.

Another alarming factor is that this week's episode was the mid-season finale, which generally gets higher ratings than normal episodes (i.e. The Walking Dead).

The 6.1 million viewers for SHIELD's mid-season finale also marks a series low.

ABC has already ordered a full season, with S.H.I.E.L.D. returning in January with the answers to Coulson's death.

The pilot episode saw over 12 million viewers, but the ratings have been dropping consistently ever since. DVR ratings are dropping the same.
