“Agents of SHIELD” began its fifth season with predictably lower ratings than last season’s debut, thanks to its move to Friday nights. But it did give ABC a slight bump vs. its performance on the night earlier in the fall.
The two-hour premiere averaged a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49 (0.7 for the first hour, 0.6 for the second), which is a bit better than the 0.5 averages for “Once Upon a Time” and “Inhumans.” The premiere is down from 1.1 for the opener last fall but in line with its 2016-17 season average of 0.7 on Tuesdays.
CBS led the night, although “MacGyver” (0.8) and “Hawaii Five-0” (0.9) were each down a tenth of a point from their last episodes. “Blue Bloods” held steady at 0.9.
“Blindspot” rose a tenth to 0.7 for NBC. “Hell’s Kitchen” fell two tenths vs. its last outing to 0.7, and “The Exorcist” was steady at 0.4.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||0.9/4||0.8/4||0.6/3||0.5/2||0.2/1|
|Total Viewers (millions)||8.01||4.40||2.71||2.03||1.23|

Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns.
Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time.
Time Shifted Viewing: Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
