Defying trends, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. got a boost this week, scoring a 1.6 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic with 3.91 million total viewers. The 7% jump is being attributed to all of the televisions in the electronics department of of King's Department Store in Preston, Idaho being left on overnight.

According to assistant manager Thomas L. Turner, speaking exclusively to The Outhouse, employees at the store are tasked with turning off the televisions before the last shift ends at 6PM in order to conserve electricity. However, last night, an unnamed electronics clerk, excited to get home and watch iZombie (which scored a .8 rating with 1.98 million viewers), forgot to perform the nightly ritual. As a result, all of the televisions, which were tuned to ABC, were left on and recorded as viewers of the beleaguered Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. "It's truly a black mark on the Kings Department Store brand," said Turner, who vowed to punish the negligent employee.

In other news, The Flash scored a 1.3 rating with 3.5 million viewers, while employees at a local Kohls are reportedly planning to leave the televisions tuned to New Girl and Weird Loners next week in retaliation against their crosstown rivals. We'll keep you posted.
