TW: But ABC also has lowest-rated fall premiere in network history with un-”Lucky 7″
“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” blew away its fall competition with the biggest network drama debut in four years.
The ABC show earned a 4.6/14 in the key 18-49 demo, with 11.9 million total viewers. The previous night, NBC’s “The Blacklist” scored the biggest network debut in a year with a 3.8 rating and 12.6 million total viewers.
The hype — and an “Avengers” connection — paid off big for “S.H.I.E.L.D.” The ratings were welcome news for ABC, which is in fourth place in the key demo.
