Now that Pushing Daisies has been clipped, Bryan Fuller is in talks to ink a two-year, seven-figure deal with Universal Media Studios, as part of which he will return to NBC's Heroes in an as-yet-undetermined capacity.

Fuller was a major player during Heroes' first season, before he left to create Daisies. If the deal with UMS goes through, he is expected back in the writers' room starting with this season's Episode 20, says the Hollywood Reporter - hopefully in time to right the struggling sci-fi drama's course. Amid soft ratings and loud grumblings about this season's creative direction, two of Heroes' co-executive producers, Jeph Loeb and Jesse Alexander, were let go in November.

'Heroes': Deep Sigh
Applying science to Heroes is a fool's errand, but solar eclipses don't last forever - they're about seven minutes long, tops. They are also not global events. It says something about the collective intelligence of the show's characters that it takes the people played by Seth Green and Breckin Meyer to figure this out for them. So after all the drama, everyone's powers have returned. But they continue to be killed off - and also brought back to life. (Sigh.)

Say good night, Veronica Mars: Sylar's powers return, and he rips open Elle Bishop's skull and steals her brain. He himself is lucky to be alive, considering he's just been, well, killed. In one of the show's most violent scenes ever, Noah, looking like he's in Reservoir Dogs, slits Sylar's throat open. But like Claire - also dead - he comes back to life as the eclipse ends. So Claire and Sylar are now officially indestructible. Even when you take away their indestructibility, they are still indestructible. At least Kristen Bell can go back to breaking up with a naked Peter Bretter and narrating the gripping tales of New York's most young and loathsome.

Fast National ratings for Monday, Dec. 1, 2008

With November sweeps over and "Dancing with the Stars" on its winter break, the Nielsen ratings took a plunge on Monday.

CBS ended the night on top, averaging a 6.5 rating/10 share and just under 10 million viewers. ABC finished second at 5.3/8. NBC, 4.0/6, beat out FOX, 3.6/5, for third, and The CW trailed with a 1.8/3.

CBS also led among adults 18-49 with a 2.9 rating, narrowly beating ABC's 2.7 and NBC's 2.6. FOX averaged 2.2 in the demographic, while The CW drew a 1.2.

"Two and a Half Men," 8.6/13, and "Worst Week," 5.3/8, moved CBS to the lead at 9 p.m. "Heroes," 4.9/7, came in second for NBC (and led the hour among adults 18-49). An hour of "Samantha Who?," 4.3/6, suffered a letdown without a "Dancing" lead-in on ABC. "Prison Break" scored a 3.5/6 for FOX, while "Privileged" had a not-so-successful Monday tryout on The CW.

At 10 p.m., a "CSI: Miami" repeat delivered a 7.5/12 for CBS. "Boston Legal," 5.4/9, took second for ABC, doubling up on the 2.7/4 for "My Own Worst Enemy" on NBC.

Man, that was one long eclipse, was it not? But now that the sun is out again, the Heroes have their powers back and Nathan Petrelli has turned back into the World's Most Suggestible Politician, we can get back to the business of starting to wrap up this arc.

Spoilers coming right after I patch up my leg in a grocery store aisle.

'Heroes': The (Kristen) Bell tolls, an eclipse ends


So, did "Heroes" have an electric ending, or didn't it? They can't do that to KristenClaire Bell, but did they?!? The measure of a good serialized show is, of course, whether you are enticed to return the next week. Lately, "Heroes," when it isn't a whole episode in a different time period, has gone back to the cliffhanger method -- and that's a good thing. One small step.

When the people in "Heroes" lost their powers because of the eclipse, we got to see which ones embrace what they've become (Hiro, The Haitian, Peter), reject it to a point (Claire, right), just kind of work it around their lives (Matt, Nathan), or have let their powers define who they are (Sylar, Daphne, Arthur). This distillation of the characters may even be a good way for the writers to get back to the characters' roots.

Cases in point: Claire and Hiro. Probably the two most popular characters on the show, probably the two who needed help the most. Putting Claire in mortal danger was good. Some of the best episodes/moments this year were ones involving her in creepy peril (Sylar's stalking and the puppetmaster come to mind). In general, making Claire a teen again, with her line "I'm not brave, I'm just a stupid teenager," and her reaction at the end to seeing herself as a baby being handed off to HRG, brought a bit of spark back to her character. And there wasn't a calfskin clutch bag in sight!

Hiro, on the other hand, has always had an overly simplistic way of viewing his heroics -- so why not make him 10 years old and go all the way? Why not have comic books be his guidebook? And, good for the comics duo! Seth Green and Breckin Meyer represent the fanboys. Ones who are able, through their random knowledge and general geekdom, to help save the world by helping Hiro. A bit over the top, but that's who Hiro is, and that's part of who the "Heroes" fanbase is. Best. Day. Ever.
