"Heroes" Ends With a Bang
Hardcore fans of NBC's freshman drama "Heroes" are bitching all over the Internet about the first season finale that many of them feel lacked a proper showdown between Zachary Quinto's villain Sylar and Milo Ventimiglia's explosive Peter Petrelli. Ratingswise however, the drama went out with a bang.
The episode surged almost 2 million viewers to 13,21 million total viewers, the drama's best results since the March 5 midseason cliffhanger which scored 14,9 million viewers.
Given all the criticism (that I personally find somewhat exaggerated) the series may continue to bleed when it returns for a second season in the fall.
FOX's "24" ended its lackluster "Day Six" with a little over 10 million viewers. The season premiere episode on January 14 scored over 16 million viewers. Jack Bauer has obviously had a very bad day.
"Dancing with the Stars" was of course the top show on Monday night with almost 20 million people tuning in. Its lead-out "The Bachelor" hit season-high for its 2-hour send-off with 12,85 million.
