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.
1/13 update: Despite some hopes from the cast, NBC has decided not to order another season.
1/22 update: You can see the rest of the latest night’s ratings.

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.
What do you think? Do you like the Heroes Reborn mini-series? Should it be cancelled or renewed for a second season?

I’m a huge fan of the Heroes series and hope they will renew Heroe reborn season 2. But the writing and acting needs much MUCH improvement. Really disappointed with the Heroe Reborn mini series.
I hope NBC gets to read this email. I was a huge fan of the 1st and 2nd seasons of Heroes. There are plenty of reasons why the later seasons became too convoluted for most viewers to follow (I personally loved every season and was very sad when the show did not renew). This posting is about Heroes Reborn. Heroes Reborn captured my imagination and my excitement again, just like seasons 1 and 2 of Heroes. Except this time, it’s obvious the writers of Heroes Reborn are aware of the pitfalls that plagued the later seasons of Heroes. They have… Read more »
I absolutely love it I really want this to carry on the way hereos did this is a great series in my opinion.. I am dissppinted so many others are disspointed I feel like it looped it back every thing made sense…
This mini-series was amazing! Left off with a great opening for a second season which was my biggest concern. As I have never written to keep a TV show on the air, this show has brought back Heroes ratings and is more than popular enough to keep going. As long as the pace of the show doesn’t get faster as that was the downfall of Heroes the original series. Keep up the great work, and please bring Heroes reborn back for season 2!
Heroes has always been an excellent, very creative show. It’s a pity Americans being the determinant as to whether the show airs or not simply don’t see this. A lot of us around the rest of the world do.
I hope they bring back heroes, I’m looking forward for a second season, but after reading this article, I was very disappointed. I really enjoyed watching it, specially when they introduced new mutants, that’s great. This last Season…really like it a lot
Bring it baaaaaack…. pleaseee!!! Its an awesome series and we still watch it.
I agree there’s plenty of police procedurals, so it wouldn’t hurt to replace just one with Heroes Reborn. Everyone has bias and unfortunately one can also show bias through the dismissal/ridiculing of a post. Even semi-ersonal attacks in online posts rarely gives anyone a good impression, so please know that I understand—some think it’s a dumb show that should be cancelled. It’s okay to simply agree to disagree with others’ vote. What kind of a place are we suppose to live in if we beat up people with different votes than ourselves? Even the Oscars seem to be losing credibility,… Read more »
