It's because different shows are judged on different measures. Heroes is as expensive a show as there is to produce, and it airs on a major network.
You simply can't compare its ratings with that of OTH, which is shot on location in North Carolina (cheaply) and airs on The CW. Other factors come into play which makes those shows not actually "lower." Overall, no major network show will ever last a full season with less than six million viewers. Cable shows, conversely, are lucky to ever break 4 million.


these two shows were lower and yet Heroes make it to the top of the list. I know the show used to be really high but come on. One Tree Hill: 2.7 million
Gossip Girl: 2.3 million
