Evidence of a changing marketplace:

NBC has NOT issued an official statement and won't for months, but the cast seems to be in the know. Apparently they have shot a Major Cliffhanger for a seaon finale.

While Heroes has had a rocky record with the ratings in the USA, it is a major hit worldwide and DVD sales are extremely strong. The $$$ speak.

I'm sure the time delay on announcements is just part of the bigger picture at NMC - new owners, low network ratings to deal with, a lineup revamp this fall.

I don't enjoy the show as much as I used to, but I still watch it because my wife likes it, which I find very odd. She's never really been into shows like this before. She also loves Fringe. Somehow both those shows have struck a chord, but I have no idea why! :scratchin

I don't know how ratings are doing but IMO the storyline has really improved this year. While some people didn't like the introduction of Samuel and the carnival it has definitly thrown a new twist and makes you wonder what will happen. That said it still doesn't have me hooked like the first year

It was a great show until they decided that people with Powers where just to expensive to maintain! Now that they stripped most of the SciFi out of it, it's become like Smallville.

I like it. Im glad that they are still going to run it for awhile longer. I did like the earlier episodes better but its still a good show.

I have difficulty reconciling your observation with the series as I have observed this season.

+1. Easily the best season since #1 IMO and I think Samuel was a good addition.

Definitely getting me hooked back in which I didn't even think possible, but there is still room for improvement.

The show has lost it's luster for me... Maybe if Season 5 drops the whole carnival thing I'll be interested.

And well, if Hiro dies I'm done...
