Apparently, it’s time to rag on Marvel’s biggest flop once again.
Yep, that’s right, The Inhumans are back on our chopping block apparently, but with good reason.
Ever since the series launch in cinemas in September, The Inhumans have not performed as well as the studios would have liked, and until recently, was standing on a 0% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Since September, the series has moved to the small screen (as planned), however, this move has still not proven to be worthwhile ratings-wise.
Deadline reported how the series hit a series low on Friday 20th October when the series’ fifth episode, “Something Inhuman This Way Comes” premiered on ABC.
As the report details, The Inhumans episode barely managed a 0.4 pull in adults in the 18-49 rating (a central demographic for most TV executives), and only had a total viewership of only 2 million.
This is a drop of -0.2, the biggest demo drop on Friday (tied with Once Upon A Time, which also dropped -0.2), meaning an overall miserable weekend for ABC.
Viewership complaints about the low-budget CGI, acting, and overall aesthetics of the show has plagued the series since the start, with some rumours even being sparked up about a cancellation after just one season, despite news coming that a second season is currently in the pipelines.
It may be only a matter of time before the final nail in the Inhumans’ coffin is hammered, and with the way things are going, it may be a lot sooner than the studios initially expected. However, as we’ve spoken about already, and from what everyone on the internet has said before now, The Inhumans is in dire need of help.
If you’re still interested, The Inhumans is airing on Sky One from 25th October and stars Anson Mount as Black Bolt, Iwan Rheon as Maximus the Mad, Serinda Swan as Queen Medusa, Ken Leung as Karnak, Isabelle Cornish as Crystal, Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon, Mike Moh as Triton, and Sonya Balmores as Auran.
