‘Heroes’ hits ground running in U.K.

U.S. series delivers highest ever audience to Sci Fi

LONDON — U.S. breakout hit “Heroes” has delivered the highest ever audience for the U.K. Sci Fi Channel in its 12-year history.

Show, launched Monday night, peaked with a 4.4% share — an exceptional result for a niche station in the U.K.

It now remains to be seen if “Heroes” can repeat this success when it bows on British terrestrial web BBC2 later this year.
