"Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." is looking less heroic. According to early numbers from Nielsen, Tuesday night's episode on ABC fell 12% from last week in the adults 18-49 demographic, the category most coveted by advertisers, to a 2.2, its lowest rating yet. It drew an average of 6.62 million viewers overall.
However, ABC's freshman comedies appeared to be drawing more of those key young adults, as "The Goldbergs" increased 13% to a 1.7 and "Trophy Wife" rose 9% to a 1.2. In 18-49, a ratings point equals roughly 1.3 million viewers.
