Monday Ratings: Another Painful Outing for Heroes

If NBC doesn’t cancel Heroes after the end of this season, it would be the worst decision that network has made since….well, you know. Although some have claimed the show will return next year, the phrase “hit a series low” is constantly used when referencing the program. (Last night was no exception.) Yesterday’s episode even drew less viewers than The Jay Leno Show.

Dexter

Squeezed in between the Golden Globes broadcast and the Oscar nominations is an awards ceremony voted on solely by the actors. (So unlike the People’s Choice Awards, this actually has meaning.)

  • The Closer, Dexter and 30 Rock lead this year’s pack with three nominations each.
  • Despite no individual mentions, freshman comedies and Glee were both honored in the Best Ensemble category.
  • Samantha Who‘s Christina Applegate received a nomination despite starring in a canceled show.
  • received its first nom—but just for its cast, not for any single actor.

The will air Saturday, Jan. 23 on both TNT and TBS.

(You can find the full list of TV nominees after the jump. Click here for the film nominations.)
