It’s probably safe to say ABC has a bonafide hit on their hands with Agents of SHIELD. The Marvel series has garnered almost universally positive review for last night’s premiere, but the real kicker is their ratings. Not only did SHIELD score the number one spot for its time slot, but it scored BIG. Agents easily defeated its competition, beating The Voice by 15% and NCIS by 35%, and now has the highest rated debut for a drama series in four years! As the show aired it only gained a larger audience from its first hour to its second, and won all the key demographics those ratings magicians consider so important (i.e. men aged 18-49).

If you somehow missed out on America’s number one show, you can watch the premiere online.

And, if you also somehow missed the latest trailer for Thor: The Dark World which premiered during the premiere of Agents of SHIELD, you can give that a watch below the cut.

Thor: The Dark World opens November 8th, and Agents of SHIELD airs Tuesday nights on ABC at 8pm EST.
