Heroes: Sneak Peek of Episode 4.17 "The Art of Deception"

After paying Claire a visit, sharing that awkward kiss with her and deducing that he must rid himself of his powers in order to be human again, Sylar visits the home of Matt Parkman, whose unsuspecting wife welcomes him in, in the Heroes episode "The Art of Deception." Still afraid of being alone and not being able to connect with anyone, Sylar asks Matt to go inside his head again to purge Sylar of his powers. Just like Claire, Matt, understandably, is reluctant to help considering what happened the last time he went inside Sylar's head. Unfortunately, Matt has no choice but to follow the orders of Sylar, who is holding Matt's wife Janice hostage. Meanwhile, Peter warns Emma of Samuel's intentions after his grim vision of the future. Claire, on the other hand, goes back to the Carnival where she warns Lydia about her dad Noah, who is cooking up a plan to take down the Samuel with the help of Lauren and Suresh. Source Here

Heroes: Will Hiro and Charlie Meet Again?

As his life hung in the balance on last week's Heroes, Hiro was confronted by the important characters from his past in his subconscious. Well, most of those people. Missing in action, of course, was Charlie (Jayma Mays), his significant other who is lost in time. But, with three episodes left in the season, that doesn't mean a reunion for the pair is out of the cards yet. "Let's put it this way: He has to find Charlie and it will be resolved by the Winter Olympics," Masi Oka tells us. "I can't say what kind of reunion it will be, but there will be a resolution. Whether it's good or not, the audience will have to decide. But it won't just be talked about - like, 'Oh well, she's lost in time. Too bad!'" With Mays starring on Glee, getting her back has been tricky, but Oka says he likes the direction Hiro's arc has taken because of the schedule conflicts. "Everybody wants them back together, but I'm very happy with the stuff he got to do this season," he says. "I think having the brain tumor, dealing with that and Charlie were two great things that Hiro had in terms of a dramatic [story line]. It was very challenging. I would say this is my second favorite creative season for Hiro." Hiro's brain tumor story line and his quest to find Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy) will also be tied up by the end of the season, which culminates in an epic showdown between the Heroes as Samuel (Robert Knepper) continues to divide the group. "Hiro will see Samuel again," Oka says. "He'll be a little bit involved with the carnival story line, but he's not too involved in the big showdown." The clash will close the Redemption volume, but will open a whole new set of questions, Oka says, thereby necessitating another season to answer them. While he acknowledges Heroes' ratings have dwindled considerably since its robust first season, Oka says the show deserves at least one more season - for the fans. "I haven't gotten any word on a renewal, but everyone agrees the show does deserve a proper ending, just because we want to pay homage to fans who have stuck with us from the beginning," he says. "Nothing is 100 percent guaranteed in television. Maybe they get amazing pilots. Hopefully it won't be like the X-Files where we need a movie to wrap things up. My hope is to have a finite end date, like Lost, or they give the writers the chance to wrap up everything and know they're going to be done." And so where does he ultimately see Hiro ending up? "I've always believed that if he becomes Future Hiro, there are no more stories to tell because it's hard to grow with that character," Oka says. "I think that's why the writers prolonged it as much as possible, but I think if we know there's an end in sight, I think it'd be fun to just take him over the edge and turn him into Future Hiro and end it that way. The best ending for him would be to go back in time and revisit his love for Charlie over and over again and live in that infinite loop." Source Here

Heroes: Hayden Panettiere's Red Hair Creates Buzz

Though there are a lot more important things I'd rather focus on, it seems like Hayden Panettiere's new hair do is getting all the buzz and attention these days. Apparently, the 20-year-old Heroes actress, who plays Claire Bennet on the NBC drama, decided to go through a drastic makeover by coloring hair her red. And critics are having a field day over it!

Heroes Cancellation Buzz: Viewers abandon Heroes in droves. Can it be saved? - Featured

Oh, Heroes , it's been nice to know you! Despite talk that NBC is considering bringing Heroes back for a fifth season, it's not looking good! Apparently few people wanted to see Hiro battle his brain tumor, Sylar kiss Claire or Samuel try to woo the woman of his past in Monday's episode, " Pass/Fail ," which hit a series low in the ratings. The show's ratings had been dropping gradually since the season premiered last September with about 6 million viewers, and there was a noticeable drop when new episodes began airing this year: under 5 million. But Monday's episode completely tanked and drew in fewer than 4 million viewers. That's a drop of about 2 million viewers since the season began, and 2 million more viewers than Heroes can afford to lose. Just over a week ago we reported that NBC executive Angela Bromstad said that NBC was considering keeping Heroes for another season and was expecting a pitch from creator Tim Kring about a fifth season before making any decisions. But the falling ratings call into question the show's chances for getting a pickup. Why exactly have a third of viewers abandoned Heroes this season? (Loss of interest? Sylar not being himself, literally? Killing off Nathan for real? Claire kissing a girl? Hiro's brain tumor? Or maybe the viewers were kidnapped by aliens?) And consider this: Heroes was a hit in its first season, averaging 14 million viewers. Now the series has an average viewership of 3.93 million. With just three episodes to go before Heroes' season finale, "Brave New Year," on Feb. 8, fans had better start rallying if they hope to see another season. Meanwhile, NBC's delightful Chuck is doing fairly well, averaging about 7 million viewers so far, and there's reason to be hopeful for the show's future. (Heroes airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT.) Do you think Heroes can be saved? Should it be? Source: Viewers abandon Heroes in droves: Can it be saved?

Top Moments: Sex with the Ex, Breakups and Kiss-Offs

This week on TV featured lots of tricky relationships. Exes Jules and Bobby found their way back into the sack on Cougar Town, Life Unexpected's Lux found a family, Jersey Shore's Sammi and Ronnie eluded love's fragile bond, and Conan O'Brien played out his very public split with NBC through mordant comedy. Welcome to Top Moments: Breaking Up Is Hard to Do Edition. 10. Ex-iest Sex: On Cougar Town, Jules' frustrating relationship with her dunderheaded former husband, Bobby, finally starts to make sense. He's charming - charming enough to get Jules in bed for what, sadly, turns out to be the last time. Jules just doesn't like him that way anymore. 9. Raise a Glass Award: Host Ricky Gervais' onstage drinking sets a boozy tone for the Golden Globes, and he only added to it with zingers like this introduction: "I like a drink as much as the next man," he says, "unless the next man is Mel Gibson." Cue a sheepish-looking Gibson. 8. Best Debut: On Life Unexpected, Cate and Baze, the high school sweethearts who have not spoken since doing the deed 15 years prior, reunite when Baze calls in to Cate's radio show to tell her, on air, that the daughter they gave up for adoption has come a-lookin'. "What, were you one of those girls who got knocked up on prom night?" her radio co-host jokes - again, on air. "More like Winter Formal," Baze says. To Read More Click Here .

'Heroes' Actor Loses Relatives in Haitian Quake, Seeks Help

Haiti native Jimmy Jean-Louis, who is perhaps best known for playing "The Haitian" on NBC's Heroes, is struggling to locate his family and friends following the powerful earthquake that struck his nation. "I have not slept yet. The second house that I grew up in was down, and some relatives have died, from what I have been told," Jean-Louis said Wednesday. "I haven't been able to reach my parents. I have heard that they are OK, but I do not know what is going on around them." Haiti, a Creole and French-speaking Caribbean country, "was already a disaster," according to the Heroes actor so the recent catastrophe "makes everything very complicated. We have no roads, just a few, and apparently those roads are blocked. Meaning, it's going to be almost impossible to get through to the people that actually need the help." Now, Jean-Louis is making a desperate real-life plea for help for his home country. The Heroes actor is also using Hollywood Unites for Haiti (HUFH), an non organization he founded that recognizes the unique opportunity that Hollywood has in raising awareness about Haiti and whose mission is to promote sports and cultural activities for the underprivileged youth of Haiti, as a medium to collect donations for the victims of the earthquake.
