So if you’ve been online you may have possibly seen DC fans bragging that Marvel is currently being owned when it comes to tv shows. How accurate is this? Let’s put it in perspective. A normal episode of The Flash , my currently all time favorite show, beat in ratings the Agents of Shield FINALE.
Interestingly, the two shows air back to back which allows fans to watch one right after the other and no one show steals viewers from the other. It’s also worth noting that while Agents of Shield ratings keep dropping, The Flash ratings are steady and even increased. This also shows DC is better at keeping an audience. According to Comicbook:
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. hit a series low with a 1.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic. This is a 13% week to week drop from last week’s 1.5 rating in the same demographic.
The Flash matched it’s previous week’s rating with a 1.4 in the 18-49 demographic.
Both shows have been renewed for new seasons. It will be interesting to see how the ratings play out in the long run.
