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.

Smallville The Smallville episode scheduled for November 27, featuring the Legion of Superheroes, has been pushed back to January.

Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles continues to ask hard questions: Do robots feel? Does torture work? If two people travel to our time intending to change the future, do they necessarily come from the same future? Terminator follows the lead of Battlestar Galactica in having a "Fall finale." My guess is that we will also have two DVD sets, Season 2a and Season 2b. Terminator has been renewed for 9 more episodes.

After the December 15 episode, Heroes goes on hiatus, and we won't get the conclusion of the "Villains" story line until February. After that, who knows? As more and more people watch Heroes on-line or use a DVR to skip commercials, renewal for a fourth season becomes more and more unlikely. The future of television seems to be cheap reality shows, and we will have to turn to some other medium for our science fiction fix.
