Heroes is the Next Halo?… by Damien

My buddy Jon Lachonis over at Buddy TV reported on an interesting point that Heroes Premiere wasn’t as big as all expected compared to Bionic Woman so the question is…do you agree?…

One possible explanation for Heroes’ reduced numbers is the fact that the shows target demo, young men between the age of 18 and 34, where standing in line at Walmarts around the country for their chance to buy the newly minted Halo 3.

The video game consumer market is very much the same bunch of consumers that would be expected to be glued to their TV sets awaiting Heroes’ triumphant return.   Thankfully for them, most of them have Tivo and there is only one chance at getting Halo on opening day.  Heroes brand wranglers identifies this market so readily that the UbiSoft game based on the series has been put on the fast track.

Halo 3 sold over $170m worth of units in the first 24 hours, many of them to lines of fans who had been waiting all day for the games midnight debut.  Every one of them a potential Heroes fan. The DVR numbers have not gone public for Heroes just yet, but it is safe to assume there was some kind of impact on Heroes viewer ship since the markets are parallel in their range of interests.

The true impact of the Halo 3 release can be gauged by next weeks numbers when Heroes returns with its second episode of the season, “Lizards.”  If the Halo effect had impact, the numbers should be considerably up.  If not, then the lingering disappointment over the rush to resolution in Heroes first season finale may have to be re-examined.



Greg Chats With LAist… by Damien

Greg Grunberg

Greg Grunberg recently sat down with the website the LAist and chatted to them about Heroes and the cast and behind the scenes and what it was like to go on a world tour.

The plots for “Heroes” episodes are extremely detailed and complicated. Remind us what was happening with your character Matt Parkman at the end of last season.

First of all the show is nowhere near as complicated as other shows I have been on. I have to say. When I was shooting “Alias”, people would ask me, especially my parents. My dad would ask ‘so what exactly is happening?”.

I would say, ‘Dad I have no idea’. I just get the scripts and I say the words. I can’t tell you who these terrorists are and what we are going after and what exactly is happening. “Heroes” is at least easy to follow. You can easily pick it up season two. You’ll know everything that is going on with in five minutes. Last year Matt Parkman was trying to find out exactly what was happening to all of these people and especially to himself. He used this little girl that he rescued in the first episode to track down and find people that are in charge of this. Season two goes back to the origins and the original group that was affected. We are sort of another group that’s coming together. Some of the character’s families were involved in the original group. They were trying to change the world. Way back.

Also Greg Revealed that Adrian Pasdar has a Youtube Handle so check that for some awesome behind the scenes stuff.

Thanks to Watching Heroes and LAist!
