NBC Cancels “Heroes”

By Wyatt Earp | May 16, 2010

I’d like to yell, “DAMMIT!,” but this was a long time coming.

After four seasons on NBC, Heroes has been canceled, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The super-series averaged less than 5 million viewers in its latest season. The network had considered giving the Tim Kring-produced drama a few more episodes to wrap up story lines, but the cost of the show and NBC’s expanding fall slate led to Heroes’ cancellation.

I own the first season on DVD. It was fan-freakin’-tastic! After that, it went to crap. I still watched every episode, but it never got its groove back. Damned, shame, too, because the premise was great.

I’ll miss Ali Larter, though . . . but not her lame character.

    After season 1 I just couldn’t get into anymore. Ali and Hayden weren’t enough to keep me watching, which says something about how lame it must have become.

    Save the cheerleader, save the…oh, to hell with it.

    Heroes was a show I just couldn’t get into, either. I’ve only got room for one silly TV show in my life, and “24″ has been it for most of the past decade. I’m almost sorry to see it go as well…even though the writers of “24″ really ran out of ideas after about Season Three…

    I could have come up with some “super powers” that would have kept this show going. Especially with the sex appeal of some of the woman in the show. But they dumbed it down and were looking for the “Twilight” appeal.

    More time to watch Justified.

    CP – Season 1 was awesome. Season 2 sucked. Season 3 was pretty good, and season 4 had its moments, but not enough of them.

    Wes S. – With Heroes and 24 going away, I have very little regulars on my TiVo – besides Justified and V.

    Danny – Exactly. They lost me when they took away Peter’s absorption powers. One power at a time is not entertaining after you saw him suck up five and six of them.

    LFH – My man! Best show on television.

    Proof – And stings like when I pee.

    Oh, that’s right: Justified. Thanks, Wyatt. So I’ll still have something to watch in the post-Bauer era…

    Hey, 1 last question, since NBC didn’t save the cheerleader, what happens to the world.

    ummmmmm…. this could suck.

    Wes S. – Haven’t seen a bad episode yet.

    CP – Meh, I welcome death!

    Great show… but it sorta had jumped the shark.

    Rodney – Agreed on both counts.

    Currently filling up on Castle and NCIS; but those gotta be anyeurism-causing for anyone in Law Enforcement, I bet. (Lord knows I about blow a gasket any time there’s cell-phone stuff or computer stuff on either show).
