"Heroes" 6.5 rating
"24" 5.4 rating

"Heroes" returned from hiatus and bested the Fox drama by more than a full rating point, earning a 6.5 rating among adults 18 to 49, according to preliminary Nielsen Media Research data, compared with a 5.4 for "24." Compared to the same episode last year, "24" was down about 9 percent -- not surprising given the newfound competition from NBC's top-rated drama.

O_O

i never saw that coming. i was worried that "24" will take audience from "Heroes". wow .... even with 4 eps of "24" and everything they did in first 4 hours, "Heroes" have better ratings...

kudos to team ... (i know i would watch "Heroes" rather then "24", but i think noone saw this coming).

great news. if they can do this to "24" then they might as well sign for third and fourth season right now. ;)

Btw, remember that it is the 18-49 range. It's the most important for advertisers, but if you're looking strictly for total viewers 24 had an 8.6 and Heroes had an 8.5. So they practically tied with 24 having a slight advantage. Which is a great thing because out of that 8.6 and 8.5 you know that a lot of these people taped the other and watched it later ;)

I am really happy, NBC did a lot to make sure that Heroes gets the coverage that it deserves!

Yeah- gotta think that a lot of people did that.


Luckily up here 24 and Heroes air on the same channel one after the other so there's no confict- otherwise it would be a tough choice. :S

As long as both shows keep airing, I'll be happy. :)

I knew that Heroes was going to win, and 24 was going to be second.

And for the record, I'm one of those who watched Heroes.

Ha Ha! Victory! Sorry...I've developed a serious hate-on for my once-beloved "24"

That'll teach you to kill off every character I liked (my poor, poor Tony :().

Heroes has the advantage of being a fresh and original concept for television.

Good stuff.

It's only down 9%, that's not too bad.
