When your pilot breaks all kinds of records and pulls in a huge crowd, it makes your second episode drop look pretty bad though. The ratings are in from last night and they show a 34% drop for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. According to The Wrap, the show had a 3.1 rating in the coveted 18-49 demo, down from its debut last week of 4.7. The pilot was the highest for a drama in four years and was the biggest TV debut of the fall.  The ratings are still strong, but the substantial drop has a few people scratching their heads.
