Ratings: 'Bachelor' and CBS comedies fly high, 'Heroes' season finale crashes

ABC’s The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love once again rose in its ratings from the previous week, according to preliminary overnight ratings. The dating reality hit scored 12.3 million viewers, an increase of 600k from the week before. Meanwhile, CBS’ Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory both delivered huge numbers with 17.6 and 16.2 million, respectively. Meanwhile, NBC’s Heroes aired its season finale with a very weak 4.4 million, a sign that the once popular series may not see another season.
