Last season, the ratings for Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD dropped once again. This time around, ABC has moved the series to 10pm when expectations are a bit lower. Will the numbers hold steady or continue to fall? Will the show be renewed for a fifth season or cancelled, now that they have enough episodes for syndication? Stay tuned.
On Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, the organization no longer needs to operate in the shadows but the world still presumes Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) is dead. As a result, a new Director (Jason O’Mara) is named and Coulson is teamed with Alphonso “Mack” Mackenzie (Henry Simmons) to track down and confirm the presence of Inhumans. The rest of the cast includes Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennet, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, John Hannah, and Gabriel Luna.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.

Last year comparison: The third season of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD averaged a 1.18 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 3.43 million total viewers (live + same day ratings).
Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
