Ratings rebound for Chuck and Heroes

Monday saw healthy rises in viewing figures for two of NBC's telefantasy shows, Heroes and Chuck, in the States, both of which grabbed their biggest audiences since the start of their seasons.

Heroes had 11.86 million viewers overnight, which is the show’s strongest figure since the second episode of season two (11.94) and up over a million week on week. This follows a batch of episodes that have seen the show return to form.

Chuck scored 8.36 million viewers overnight, its biggest audience since its season premier. It seems that NBC’s faith in commissioning a full series has been rewarded.
