SHIELD's ratings continue to decline. It was down to a 7.15 this week bringing the season average down to 8.5. While that's certainly better than most SyFy network shows I'm not sure if is enough to compete on Network prime time. It is fairing better than V did, however. At this point in the series V took a nosedive from a 7.03 to 5.79 rating but it did have a higher average rating of 9.39. I am hopeful that the upcoming Thor tie-in will help increase ratings in order to maintain the show in ABC's stable.
