Masi Oka and Hayden Panettiere talk Heroes season 4Heroes favorites Masi Oka and Hayden Panettiere took some time out to talk about the upcoming season, specifically what’s going on with Hiro and Claire’s new college roommate.

Last we saw our favorite Japanese villain-fighter extraordinaire, he wasn’t faring too well with fighting off a sickness he acquired. Oka elaborated on his character’s hardship:

“Hiro let someone into his world. The first time he stopped time while touching someone—in that case, it was Ando—that was first time he froze time with someone else in that freeze-time world. That was started the adverse effect in Hiro’s brain. The power is meant to have a capacity of one. When you start adding Ando, Suresh, and other people into that world, it just a strain that’s put on Hiro’s brain.”

Oka also revealed that the dynamic between Ando and Hiro changes when Ando marries Hiro’s sister and harnesses his powers, “It always changes, but once Ando got his powers, it was more equal footing. It wasn’t more of a Batman and Robin; it became more of a Batman and Superman. There’s something to be said to be said about the familiarity of the characters and what the audience wants and expects, but we want the characters to grow.”

If there ever was a time for fans to come out and support Chuck, it would have been last night. Unfortunately, the numbers for both NBC finales were basically flat from last week. (At least the network has already declared that Heroes will get a return.) Meanwhile, FOX beat out CBS in a tight race for the demos while ABC was in first with the viewers.

Heroes cast

will be brought slightly down to size next season.

Although no official announcement has yet been made about the show’s future, sources say the NBC series will air again. Just not as many times as before. According to Advertising Age, execs are considering an 18-20 episode order. That would be down from this year’s 25 hours.

While some might consider this to be a blow for the program, many weren’t sure the declining program would return at all. Actor Adrian Pasdar (Nathan Petrelli), in the meantime, thinks the shortened stint will actually help.

Attempts to give Bones more attention didn’t do much for either the show or the network. Despite decreased competition from CBS, the program pulled in smaller numbers than the normal slot holder. The series also declined from its last Thursday outing.

Yes, yes - you heard me right: NBC showed signs of life yesterday. But let’s not get too excited now. It’s not like the network won anything. (The Peacock was still in fourth place.) It just didn’t suck as badly as it has been.

Yesterday’s premiere of Surviving Suburbia did well despite NCAA competition. The program had the best numbers for a comedy debut since the opener of Samantha Who? in October 2007. (A Dancing with the Stars lead-in being the common denominator.)
