It would appear that ABC has settled on a premiere date for LOST season 6.
One of ABC’s press sites is giving the date of January 20th for the premiere of LOST. A week earlier than previous rumors, but who is going to complain about that. Since no-one has officially verified that date, it is – as always – subject to change. I’m going to shoot some emails around to try to get verification.
There is still no word on whether LOST will be pre-empted by the Olympics. Since the nets have rarely pre-empted for the Olympics in the past, it seems unlikely – and the earlier circulated rumor turned out to be false (way to go, Harvard.) Still, NBC is planning a huge push for the games, whether that spooks the nets or not we’ll have to wait and see. If LOST airs on Wednesday, it would be battling Men’s Ice Hockey.
