Default Re: Disney/Marvel & ABC working on Avengers spin-off tv show? - Part 1

They need to debut SHIELD against weak competition, and not in a death-sentence time slot.
When I said "better" I meant "do" better in terms of ratings. HIMYM averages around 8 million viewer, CSI 10, and TWD 10. The only juggernaught there is BBT with around 18-20 million. I've always imagined SHIELD bringing in upwards of 11 million on a national channel like ABC especially if it's not up against TWD on Sundays.
