Fans of NBC’s Heroes have the night off this week, but two of the show’s producers have the night off permanently. Is this shake up a sign that the end is near for the once super hit series?
Can you believe that not even two years ago, this show was on a ratings high? After the first season, Heroes launched a world tour and had plans for a spin-off (that have long since been discarded).
Did the series bite off more than it could chew? Or was the writers’ strike a mark of death for the show?
Either way after a dismal second season, the show has been scrambling to get viewers back. But not only is the show not gaining back its fans, it’s still losing them. The viewership from the third season is down 18 percent from last year.
Blog and entertainment sites across the web are all coming up with plans to “save” the show, but I have to wonder if the show can be saved.
Will the exit of Alexander and Loeb really help the flailing season? Do they have new/better help in the wings? Or is a sinking ship trying to rid itself of “dead weight” (one could argue if Alexander and Loeb are really the right choices here) in an effort to save itself?
So do any of you have the power to jump to the future or paint it and tell us what’s in store for Heroes? Is this the beginning of the end? In this Heroes last season? And should it be?
