ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD drew 8.4 million total viewers and a 3.1 demo rating in its second outing, dropping 31 and 34 percent from its boffo premiere.

Thusly, the rest of ABC’s all-new Tuesday slate took a hit. The Goldbergs (6.2 mil/2.2) fell 29 percent in the demo, Trophy Wife (4.3 mil/1.4) plunged 39 percent and Lucky 7 (2.8 mil/0.8) dropped 38 percent.

UPDATE: Per finals, SHIELD adjusted up to 8.7 mil/3.3, while Lucky 7 made my wordplay-loving self squee by ticking down to an unlucky 0.7.
