I read on todays' morning spoilers that ABC will schedule SHIELD on Tuesdays at 8. Right up against ten year veteran NCIS.
According to Variety.com "...preliminary national estimates, “NCIS” averaged a strong 3.2 rating/10 share in adults 18-49 and 18.2 million viewers overall — dominating its timeslot and ruling as Tuesday’s No. 1 program in adults 25-54 (4.7/13). It also was easily the night’s most-watched program overall, beating the combined ABC-NBC-Fox reality show competition (16 million)."
My inner geek wants this show to succeed as much as all my IO9 extended family. But to put it it up against the number one show on tv!????
