Tonight on the Tube: Save the Cheerleader, Save the World

Download Heroes Episodes at iTunesThe NBC Heroes promos say they will tell you what “Save the Cheerleader, Save the World” means. They sure have been building this up. This tends to be where people will either get further fired up about the show or start to fall away from it. I hope it lives up to the hype, as everything else about this show has been really great. Heroes is one of my favorite new shows of the season. It draws you in and keeps you interested and they sure know how to pull off beginnings and endings of episodes. Will you be watching Heroes tonight instead of “hearing about it the next morning?”
