"Heroes" Babe Hayden Panettiere Smiles Despite Ratings & Family Troubles
Her hit NBC series is still down in the ratings and her father has just been charged with misdemeanor battery for an incident in which he allegedly hit his wife, but "Heroes" star Hayden Panettiere is still smiling for the cameras.
Earlier this week it was reported that Alan Panettiere faces up to a year in a Los Angeles County jail if convicted. He was arrested on Aug. 11 on suspicion of striking his wife, Lesley.
Meanwhile, Hayden's sci-fi saga "Heroes" has failed to break the 10 million mark in the Nielsen ratings, losing about 5 million viewers year to year. The show returned to NBC Mondays following a 10-month break and a lackluster 2nd season.
