'Agent Carter' Low Ratings Get Defended by ABC
Hayley Atwell is surrounded by her co-stars while attending the Disney & ABC Television Group’s TCA Winter Press Tour party on Thursday evening (January 15) in Pasadena, Calif.
Even though the new Marvel series has received strong reviews, the initial ratings haven’t been that great.
“We feel very optimistic about it,” ABC entertainment president Paul Lee said during the show’s panel earlier that day.
“SHIELD is actually a great and powerful show for us, [it’s 18-49 demo rating with seven days of DVR playback playback] pops up to a 3.0, it brings in a male audience for us and it’s creatively really strong now,” he added. “We left a great cliffhanger at the end of Christmas and now it’s going to come back with some fantastic storylines. And to have Agent Carter in the [SHIELD hiatus] gap doing sort of double what we were doing there last year is great for us.”
