No More Heroes Or FlashForward

Saturday, May 15th, 2010

Zachary Quinto (Sylar) will have more free time on his hands now that Heroes has been canceled after four seasons.

Heroes may have featured ordinary people with superhuman abilities, but even Sylar couldn’t overcome anemic ratings. NBC canceled the once-popular show after ratings, which once averaged a 6.6 rating/10 share, fell almost thirty percent to a 4.7/7 after the third season.

Cho: Trek A Dream Job

Friday, April 2nd, 2010

John Cho, currently appearing on ABC’s FlashForward as FBI agent Demetri Noh, is looking forward to working on the next Star Trek movie.

While promoting FlashForward, which has just returned from hiatus, Cho spoke about filming in Los Angeles for FlashForward as well as working on Star Trek. “What’s been great about filming in L.A. is just getting to relearn my city because we’re shooting on location so much,” he said. “For instance, we shot in Pacoima and, oddly enough, it’s a place I’d never been to. That was cool. We’ve been shooting in Japantown a little bit, and I always like going to Little Tokyo and eating in Ramen spots.”

FlashForward Renewed

Wednesday, October 14th, 2009

John Cho will have work for some time to come as FlashForward, the show on which he is currently appearing as Demetri Noh, has been granted a full season.

ABC announced that the show has been picked up for a full slate of twenty-two episodes. FlashForward has done very well, becoming the first show since 2004 to beat Survivor in the key adult 18-49 demographic.

FlashForward has led the pack when it comes to DVR usage. Over the first week, it was the number one show in DVR playback, gaining two million viewers as a result of that format. Other shows noted for their strong DVR playbacks are Lost (to which FlashForward is often compared) and The Office.

Cho: FlashForward

What will happen to John Cho‘s role in FlashForward when it comes time to film Star Trek XII?

Cho, who plays FBI agent Demetri Noh, might have to face the possibility of a schedule conflict, but for now, he’s enjoying his new role. “You know for me as an actor it’s kind of a unique situation not knowing where the character is going,” he said. “Not having a full script. Typically in a movie you know how the movie ends, and you sort of map out your performance. This one we’re kind of winging it, because the actors don’t know what’s going on from episode to episode. It’s a very unique scenario, but it’s exciting.”
