Most pirated shows of 2009: Someone's still watching 'Heroes'

Posted on

Torrentfreak has issued its annual list of the year’s most pirated TV shows, and, once again, it’s topped by Heroes (6.6 million downloads for a single episode). The Top 10:

1. Heroes

2. Lost

3. Prison Break

4. Dexter

5. House

6. 24

7. Desperate Housewives

8. Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

9. Grey’s Anatomy

10. True Blood

The site notes that for the first time, the downloads of two shows (Heroes and Dexter) on BitTorrent exceeded their average viewership on US television. That could be a game-changer for a struggling broadcast show like Heroes…until you read the next paragraph: In general, most downloads come from countries where shows are not yet available. What’s your position on pirated TV, PopWatchers?
