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
