Mervels Agents of Shield

ABC says the drama is the network's biggest series opener to date in online streaming

Viewership of ABC’s new series “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” has soared above the 20-million viewer mark, according to the network.

After bowing with 12.1 million viewers in Nielsen’s “live plus same-day” estimates, “SHIELD” gained about 3.7 million viewers via DVR time-shifting and video-on-demand from Wednesday through Friday. An on-air repeat Thursday night added 4.7 million, and roughly 1.6 million watched online, including Hulu — bringing the show’s total through Sunday to roughly 22.1 million.

According to ABC, “Agents of SHIELD” is the network’s most popular premiere to date in the five-day streaming window.

“SHIELD” finished premiere week as the No. 1 new program in 18-49. Last Tuesday’s premiere earned a big 4.7 rating, which swelled to 6.5 with just three days of DVR playback and VOD.
