'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Got a Full Season Order
In always surprising news for Joss Whedon, he's getting to keep a show on the air--at least for a little longer. ABC has reportedly given a full season order to Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the Whedon co-created series about the only secret agent team with more attractive women than Charlie's Angels. It's somewhat unexpected given that, since its big premiere, the show has steadily and massively declined in viewership; it was down a third of its audience by the second episode, and went down another half a point this week. But apparently the network still has hopes the series can find and start maintaining an audience. Or at least they hope that, now they've given it enough of a chance, maybe you won't start a campaign to get it back on the air once they inevitably cancel it. Nice try, ABC.
