'Heroes,' new shows 'Chuck' and 'Life' renewed for fall 2008
NBC announced today that it will relaunch Heroes, as well as the struggling freshman series Chuck and Life, in the fall. Heroes is the Peacock’s No. 1 series this season in the all-important adults 18-to-49 demographic and has averaged 13.1 million viewers. Chuck didn’t lure quite the same size audience; the show, about a techie with government secrets in his brain, only averaged 8.7 million. Meanwhile, the drama — about an offbeat detective who served time in prison for a crime he didn’t commit — averaged 8.1 million.
