In defense of Heroes, many viewers were likely tuned to the NCAA Championship Game last night.
Then again, that contest didn't begin until halfway through the episode - and any loyal Heroes fan could have missed the opening few minutes of North Carolina's blowout of Michigan State.
However you analyze it, the show dipped to a new series low last night: only 6.05 million people tuned in for it.
The show was also down 30% in the important 18-49 year-old demographic.
Angela Petrelli will be the focus of next week's installment. Let's hope it turns the ratings around!
