marvel agents of shield premiere highest ratings four years 12 million viewers abc disney the avengers joss whedon clark gregg

If you thought Mark Ruffalo's big, green hulk was incredible, just wait until you take a look at these numbers!!!!

The Avengers spin-off reeled in ridiculously successful ratings last night, with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. enjoying the best opening of any TV drama in four friggin' years!!

The show ran against stiff competition in NCIS and The Voice, but over 11.9 million homes tuned in to watch Clark Gregg's resurrection in an action-packed premiere!

The debut scored a 4.6 rating in the ever-important 18-49 demo, which surprisingly tied The Voice!!

Whoa!! We expected a good showing given Joss Whedon's source film is the third highest grossing movie ever, but we hardly expected this!!

We're guessing the suits at Marvel/Disney/ABC didn't either; they must have a business boner the size of Thor's hammer this morning!

Ch-ch-check out a few GIFs from the show…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

    Well the show is looking great. Come watch the pilot episode if you haven't already. The Level 7 Shield team is awesome. Personally, fitz/simmons are my favorite. If you missed the show today, then watch the full episode on my fan site.

    I could not keep focused on this show, it was very very boring. Hazy plot, I still barely know who the main characters are.
