Last week, the third episode of Marvel’s Inhumans aired. “Divide and Conquer” unfortunately brought in even fewer viewers than in the series’ premiere week on ABC.
“Divide and Conquer” pulled in 2.8 million viewers, only a 0.7 in the ages 18-49 demographic. This is a 22-percent drop from their premiere the week before. Granted, the show is in a typically terrible Friday night time slot, but the low critical and audience ratings for the program might not be enough to keep it on for another season.
Despite the poor reception, Marvel’s Inhumans is currently scheduled to air on ABC for five more weeks.
Marvel’s Inhumans stars Anson Mount as Black Bolt, Serinda Swan as Medusa, Isabelle Cornish as Crystal, Iwan Rhoen as Maximus, Ken Leung as Karnak, Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon, Mike Moh as Triton, Sonya Balmores as Auran and Ellen Woglomas as Louise.
“After the Royal Family of Inhumans is splintered by a military coup, they barely escape to Hawaii where their surprising interactions with the lush world and humanity around them may prove to not only save them, but Earth itself.”
Marvel’s Inhumans can be seen Friday nights on ABC at 8pm ET.
