Invasion’s back — but with a negative twist

Last night ABC aired the 18th ‘Invasion’ episode, a TV series that came back after a 5-week hiatus. A couple of things (with apologies to my online friend Nathan who guest stars in the show):

Overnight ratings show a 2 million decline in the viewership compared to pre-hiatus episodes (about 7 million over 9.5 a month ago). This situation will have consequences in ABC’s decision to bring back the show next season or not. The whole hiatus thing and the rumors of cancellation put off a lot of viewers it seems.

The CG last night were awful. I made a forum post here and uploaded some screenshots to make my case. It really made me wonder if they had budget cuts because these scenes were really low quality.
