Update: In preliminary ratings Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D delivered a 4.6 adults 18-49 rating.

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D premieres tonight at 8PM. ABC is certainly expecting big things from this tie-in series, especially as rumors swirl about possible other Marvel Universe TV projects in the pipeline. So what do you think? Will the newly-resurrected Phil Coulson bring in the ratings? Will you be tuning in? Make your predictions below and explain your rationale in the comments!

    “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” is easily among the most front-loaded new shows to come on in recent memory. For my money, even a 4.1 sounds like low-balling it. But, I could be wrong.

    I will also add this — despite airing on a big night for ABC and the endorsement of Steven Spielberg, I don’t expect “Lucky 7″ to do well at all. After all, ABC has done dramas before with large casts whose characters each had a complex running storyline. In 2006 it was “Six Degrees”, and in 2010 it was “My Generation”. Last January, “Do No Harm” was NBC’s third duality-themed drama after the failed shows “My Own Worst Enemy” and “Awake”, and that was the biggest drama bomb in the network’s history with it’s debut not even cracking 1.0 in the demo and getting pulled after only two episodes.

    OMG for the comic book nerds that expect ginormous ratings for an 8PM show. :roll:

    i think 3.4 but if it wasn’t the start of the 2 part special for cote leaving ncis i might of said higher but ncis will kick some but 2night with huge numbers i think over a 4 for ncis

    S.H.I.E.L.D. 3.2 or 3.5

  • Reny

    I think it will open big. I love The Voice but I left it for a watching later last night so I could support Sleepy Hollow and that is just because I think it and I know how much numbers matter.

    With S.H.I.E.L.D. it’s so much more. It’s “his first name is Agent” Phil back to life and Joss, it could be about anything and I’d watch it if Joss Whedon wrote it or was involved. The man is a genius with words and actors and I would support it for him alone. Add in the fact it looks fabulous and The Avengers tie in and people would have to be idiots for it not to be a hit. Oh wait, I forgot, most of the “people” who the count for ratings are idiots.

    Viewing party tonight from our Team Joss, the Wheadon can do it all (if you haven’t see Much Ado, get the dvd when it comes out, it’s impressive and entertaining). More pure fun though, nothing beats a Buffy the Musical Sing Along, if they ever have one where you live, go (and remember it’s BYOB – bring your own bunny).

    I’m feeling pessimistic.


  • JIames

    Shield – 4.0
    Goldbergs 2.5
    Trophy Wife 1.6
    Lucky 7 1.3

  • Robo

    3.7 for the premiere and then downwards from there.

    It will not make past it’s first season.

  • Michael1

    It will be the second-most watched Cobie Smulders show of the week. “How I Met Your Mother” scored a 3.6, and she makes an appearance tonight.

  • frodo

    Its getting great reviews and a lot of buzz so I say a 4.5.

  • Kissan

    What is wrong with you people? People that are predicting 4.0 or less are WRONG!!! I say 4.8.

  • Tori

    I definitely think well over 4.0, but think it could be over 5.0. Not sure what the record is for a scripted premiere in the last 5-10 years, but the record could be in danger.

    You know how when you’re on Facebook you get the sidebar ads? Many of the new shows have had ads running, I’ve noticed they’ve got tens of thousands of likes, the more anticipated shows, they’ve got like 80,000-120,000 likes. Agents of SHIELD? Over 1 million. I say watch out.

    Can’t wait for it to flop

  • j

    A trillion!

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    OMG for the people who says the show will have 3.5 or less…

    I guess we’ll just see tomorrow.

  • CBSviewer

    @ Tori

    Desperate Housewives premiered with a 12.0 and I don’t think it’s the record. Don’t worry the record is not in danger at all ;)

  • SG

    3.0 if they’re lucky!

  • Pinkle

    Going to be conservative due to strong competition.

    S.H.I.E.L.D. – 4.0
    The Goldbergs – 2.8
    Trophy Wife – 2.6

    NCIS – 3.7
    NCIS: LA – 3.4
    POI – 2.8

    The Voice – 4.4
    Chicago Fire – 2.7

    Dads – 1.8
    B99 – 2.3
    New Girl – 2.8
    Mindy – 2.2

  • Pinkle

    Oops, forgot to add Lucky 7

    Lucky 7 – 2.0
