THR: A Good Night of Television for Asian Americans. SHIELD opens Strong, Dads Shows Weakness


ShieldMarvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. starring an ensemble cast which includes actress Ming Na Wen debuted to very impressive ratings among the all important 18-49 demographic, reports The Hollywood Rreporter.

The ABC program attracted nearly 12 million viewers in the 18-49 demographic which is equal to a 4.6 rating. That’s the best premier of any drama on ABC since 2009.

On a related note, it was a bad night for Fox’s Dads. The show described by critics as the most racist on television largely for its portrayal of Asian Americans had a 1.5 rating among adults. That’s a drop of seven-tenths of a point from its premier last week.

Rating declines  the week after a premier are not uncommon.  Hopefully Dads will continue to decline into oblivion and SHIELD will be able to retain its impressive audience.
