Shortly after it premiered, Heroes looked like the runaway hit of the 2006-07 season. Due to many factors — poorly-planned hiatuses, the writers strike, unfortunate story choices — some audience members stopped watching. The ratings dropped to dangerously low levels but many believe that the show should continue for years to come. There are certainly plenty of mysteries and stories left to explore.
If you’d like to see Heroes continue, there are a few things you can do:
Tell your friends and family members to tune in and watch on NBC. Viewers are what is most important to the network and watching the program “live” is certainly best. If that’s not possible, encourage them to record it and watch it soonafter, or watch online. Maybe one of them is secretly a “Nielsen family” or knows one and that will help the ratings.
Write to NBC. Let the network know how you feel about the show. Be sure to keep it civil. Everyone responds best to courtesy.
Sign the petition below and let the network execs know you’ve signed it. Spread the word and ask others to do the same. The cheerleader’s okay — save the show!
To: Tailwind Productions, Universal Media Studios, and NBC
We, the undersigned, enjoy watching the Heroes TV show on NBC. The series is a great show filled with a mixture of intrigue and sci-fi action. The stories always leave us wanting to find out what’s going to happen next. Heroes is a very unique show and deserves to stay on the air.
The series has always aired on Monday nights, pitted against some of the toughest competition in primetime. If the ratings aren’t measuring up, why not try airing it on another night? Please keep producing and airing Heroes, a one-of-a-kind show.
Thank you for your consideration.
