Ratings are based on a four star system.
One star means that the commercials are more entertaining than the program.
Two stars watch if you have nothing better to do.
Three stars is good solid entertainment.
Four stars means you never dreamed television could be this good.

Heroes "No more kissie, kissie," fans of Heroes demanded of Tim Kring, Heroes' creator. And he has obliged, ending the romantic episodes involving The Cheerleader, Hiro, and Peter and returning to an action/adventure format, with a bigger and better disaster threatening life on Earth. I liked the more character driven episodes, but I must admit that the cliffhanger story line of the last few episodes has been more exciting. Just one more episode to go before the end of the first half-season.

First Battlestar Galactica and now Heroes airing half a season at a time -- how much longer before 24 has to change its name to "12"? At least that would allow Jack Bauer to catch a little shut eye.

Evidently falling ratings (and the writer's strike) have caused the cancellation of the Heroes: Origins mini-series, originally planned for this holiday season.

Smallville Monday, December 3
Heroes "Powerless", half-season finale

Friday, December 7
Stargate Atlantis "This Mortal Coil I", by Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie

Thursday, December 13
Smallville "Gemini", by Caroline Dries

Stargate Atlantis will return January 4, 2008.

Smallville will return January 31, 2008.

The return of Heroes depends on the writer's strike.

Journeyman has been cancelled.

Battlestar Galactica and Bionic Woman were shut down by the writers' strike, and whether they will ever go back into production is anybody's guess. The Battlestar Galactica episodes already filmed won't be aired until April 2008.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
