TV Ratings: "Heroes" Takes a Hit
NBC's hit drama "Heroes" returned last night following a 6-week hiatus, but the ratings have actually gone down a bit. "0.7%" was one of the lowest rated episodes of the series with 11,98 million viewers. On March 5, the mid-season cliffhanger scored 14,90 million.
The drama however managed to beat "Dancing with the Stars" in the 18-49 demo finishing first in the timeslot and it also pulled in more viewers than the competing drama "24" on FOX (10,31 million) which actually finished fourth in the 18-49 demo.
"24" however built from its lackluster lead-in "Drive" which continues to sink - last night's episode scored a disappointing 4,6 million.
NBC's "Deal or no Deal" is not as big of a hit as it used to be when it did not air opposite "Dancing," but it still managed to pull in 10,84 million total viewers.
ABC's dancing competition was of course the most watched program of the evening with 18,66 million.
The series premiere of Ashton Kutcher's new reality series "The Real Wedding Crashers" at 10 did not break any records scoring 7,05 million viewers.
This was however an improvement over the last episode of "The Black Donnellys" which was seen by 5,3 million people on April 2. Since some viewers were only sampling the new show, the numbers may go down in week #2.
