Marvel's Inhumans has finally debuted on network television and the two hour premiere had soft ratings.

The rating is not a disaster, but the numbers might drop dramatically for the weeks to come. If this keeps up, we might not see a second season.

As noted by The Hollywood Reporter, the two hour premiere of Marvel's Inhumans averaged a 0.9 rating among the 18-49 demographic.

Overall, the premiere had 3.8 million viewers. This is on par with the season 4 premiere of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

However, the number pales in comparison to the pilot of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. which earned a 4.7 rating among the 18-49 demographic with 12.12 million viewers.

This shows us that interest in Inhumans is minimal. The drop off might be seen in the weeks to come as the reception for the series has been poor both from critics and the general audience.

There has been speculation that the new series will not see a second season. It seems as if Marvel hastily put together the TV series quickly with a tight budget.

The original plan of the Inhumans was for it to be a big blockbuster movie. For some reason, Marvel got cold feet and made it for network television instead.

Marvel has been a powerhouse in the entertainment industry, but the recent TV shows have not been received well. Both Inhumans and Iron Fist have not lived up to expectations.

Iron Fist can survive since it's on Netflix, but the future for Inhumans looks bleak. Don't be surprised to hear in the coming weeks that the series has been cancelled.
