NOTES: The Visitors are among us. In a single shared moment, they appear in every major city in the world, promoting a message of peace. They want to share their knowledge of technology; they want us to unite. And they are counting on a very important component of human nature: devotion. At first considered a threat, the Visitors - or V's - quickly become a fascination. But when FBI Counter Terrorist Agent Erica Evans discovers what lurks beneath the alarmingly human exterior of the V's, resisting this new world has never been more important - and never has been more at stake. It truly is the dawning of a new day.
Airing Tuesdays at 10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT on the ABC Television Network, "V" had the highest-rated new scripted series debut of the 2009-10 television season among Adults 18-49.
