    The Oval and American Soul ratings on BET Her, please? Thanks!

    Not a bad rating for a scrubbed Space Launch 😛

    OMG my poor SHIELD! I mean I knew it would end up averaging out to a 0.3 over the course of the season, but man…to start with it is very disappointing. Oh well, let’s hope it’s fully fan service at this point which is all that really matters.
