The debut of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was so nice that ABC has decided they will play it twice. The pilot episode of MAoS debuted on Tuesday and the ratings numbers were so captivating that ABC got greedy and decided to boot a rerun of “Shark Tank” originally scheduled for Thursday and replace it with a rerun of MAoS instead. For its Tuesday debut, MAoS captured 11.9 million viewers [a 4.6 rating] in the coveted 18-49 demographic – the best numbers in four years for a new drama in that demographic.
The rerun of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” will air at 8 p.m. on ABC on Thursday, September 26, 2013.
