Adrian Pasdar: "Heroes" Ratings Still Great
Adrian Pasdar, the star of NBC's hit series "Heroes" has said to TV Guide that despite its recent drop in total viewers, the genre drama "still brings home the bacon."
The freshman series which averaged 14-16 million viewers earlier this season stood out as the #1 new drama on broadcast television.
The drama, however, took a noticeable dive when it returned from its 6-week spring hiatus on April 23 plummeting to 11,9 million. The most recent telecast pulled in a little over 11 million total viewers on Monday.
Pasdar however likens each episode to a blockbuster movie opening: "We're doing $100 million worth of business every time; It's the demographic that holds true."
"If we had started to slip [in the demo], there'd be some concern, but we're still winning the 18-to-49. The demographics have held tight the entire time."
The show concludes its first season with a "mind-blowing" episode on May 21.
