When it began, Heroes was a huge hit for NBC. But then, the storylines got too convoluted, much of the audience lost interest, the ratings dropped and the network cancelled the series without any resolution. Now, they’ve revived it as a mini-series called Heroes Reborn. Will it be a big success and be brought back for a second season or will it be a flop? Stay tuned.
Heroes Reborn takes place a year after a terrorist attack in Odessa, Texas. With the city destroyed, the government blamed people with special abilities and they all had to go into hiding. Noah Bennet (Jack Coleman) is also in hiding, but is found by conspiracy theorist Quentin Frady (Henry Zebrowski) who tries to show him the truth. The rest of the cast includes Zachary Levi, Robbie A. Kay, Kiki Sukezane, Ryan Guzman, Rya Kihlstedt, Gatlin Green, Henry Zebrowski, Judith Shekoni, and Danika Yarosh.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

Note: Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
