I see the tv show Heroes got 84,180 viewers:

http://www.throng.co.nz/ratings/tv-ratings-29-march-2010

I wonder why tv3 air Heroes on c4? tv3 have this new show called "i get that alot" at 8.30pm this thursday. From what i saw on the promo it looks like show that should be on c4. I reckon tv3 should air Heroes at 8.30pm thursdays and air "i get that alot" in the Heroes c4 timeslot.

What do you guys think?

Probably has something to do with the fact the Heroes has completely lost its way storywise, and people just aren't that into it anymore.

Also, MediaWorks are mirgrating content, and adding new shows to C4, so that they can have a new free to air music channel.

I'm with you, dragged out pointless storylines.....went the way of lost to me.

Just hoping FlashForward doesn't go the same way - conisdering it the same company producing it.

Heroes was the most downloaded tv show series via bittorrent in 2009 (and the start of 2010), you know back when S4 was actually new and being screened in the US

I bet way way way more NZ'ers downloaded it that the 80,000 that Throng says watched it on tv3.

The artificial time delay in showing it here is akin to shooting themselves in the foot.

Ragnor : I completely agree, the staggered release times seem to be a hangover form when you physically couldn;t ship the media around the world at the same time. Now I reckon by staggering releases ... in encourages people to download it.

So basically ... the tv companies are supporting pirating of material ... okay thats a little bit of stretch :)

I'm inclined to agree since I was one of those downloaders (although I got it from iTunes, not torrents).

Suggestion that due to declining ratings it wont be renewed for the next US season.
Even the Live+7days ratings have been struggling. NBC comment that they have had discussions with Tim Kring (show creator) to determine what to do about the show.

Nothing that you will want to pay for I suspect.  You won't see it on NZ iTunes until the NZ networks have shown it or authorized it.  No modern US or UK programs..

I haven't watched since about halfway through the last season, it just got too complex for me to keep up with. Lost is only marginally better. Was sad to see prison break end, just started watching breaking bad, that may have taken up the slack.
