It's appearing less and less likely that even the strongest of abilities will be able to save Heroes.
Last night's episode of this once-popular drama drew 6.9 million viewers. Perhaps that doesn't sound awful to the average reader, but consider:
Last year at this time, during the 9 p.m. Monday time slot, NBC aired the reality competition My Dad Is Better Than Your Dad. It received 900,000 more viewers than Heroes. Seriously.
Among other primetime pickings:
- House (14.6 million) was the night's No. 1 show in viewers and in the 18-49 year-old demographic.
- The two-hour The Bachelor special did well (11 million), but was down from last week's regular episode.
- 24 (11.6 million) increased from last week.
