Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. came in a confident second in the hour again this week ahead of The Biggest Loser. NCIS was back in the game with a new episode to steal back some of its loyal audience of 11 years that switched over to S.H.I.E.L.D. two weeks earlier.
As is expected after a week off (last week was a repeat) the ratings dropped but this was also the case for NCIS who were also coming back from a break. S.H.I.E.L.D.'s numbers will likely tick up a notch when the final numbers are released later today.
S.H.I.E.L.D. continues to make significant gains in the +7 DVR numbers in both demographic and total viewers and is still performing exceptionally well amongst the highly desired young male demographics.
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has a full season order of 22 episodes. This week's episode is the final of the year with the season picking up again on January 7th and continuing through until May.
Here are the numbers for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for the season including the +7 DVR figures where available (note, these numbers do not include repeat airings or online viewing.)
