ABC: Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Is So Freakin’ Awesome We’re Airing The Pilot Twice

…And why the hell not?

On Tuesday, the highly anticipated Joss Whedon series, Marvel’s Agents of  S.H.I.E.L.D. (a spinoff series of the insanely successful film, The Avengers) starring fan-favorite Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, premiered and though it was clearly the front-runner going into the evening, I’m not sure if anyone saw it doing as well as it did. With 11.9 million viewers and a 4.6 rating among the coveted 18 – 49 demographic, Agents of  S.H.I.E.L.D. was the highest rated premiere in all of television in four years. 

So, ABC had a choice: air an episode of Shark Tank on Thursday  at 8:00 p.m. or, y’know… the highest rated premiere on television in four years.  Kind of  a no-brainer with that decision.  The only downside is for folks who can only get ABC on their TV because after the awesomeness that is Agents of  S.H.I.E.L.D. ends (yeah… we f*cking love this show), those unfortunate viewers will be forced to watch the two-hour season premiere of Grey’s Anatomy.
