LOST very likely suffered from it’s “Miss Guided” lead-in. Ashton Kutcher’s latest straight-from-the-gutter attempt at television, which bombed horrible. Perhaps the seven-million people that watched it clawed their eyes out and were unable to go-on?
When LOST returns, even though it will be later, it will be the capper to the trio of power some people are predicting will be the resurgence of must-watch-tv: Ugly Betty, Grey’s Anatomy, and LOST. I’m not looking forward to staying up another hour, but I am looking forward to the boost LOST is going to get from all those UB and GA fans vegging it for an extra hour.
LOST didn’t do as badly as first predicted. The show actually came in around 12.9m viewers, when DVR+7 figures come in it will probably boost the bottom line considerably.
