ABC’s ‘Lost’ finds new time slot as inhospitable as its hostile island

LYNN ELBER; The Associated Press
Published: February 17th, 2007 01:00 AM
“Lost” crashed in the ratings this week, hitting an all-time low for a new episode.

ABC’s drama about plane crash survivors stranded on a mysterious island drew an estimated 12.8 million viewers Wednesday, according to preliminary figures from Nielsen Media Research. That’s well off the peak of more than 20 million for the drama that became an instant sensation when it debuted in September 2004.

ABC has worked hard to try to protect a show that helped turn the network’s fortunes around, moving it to 10 p.m. Wednesday to steer clear of Fox’s blockbuster “American Idol” and CBS’s increasingly strong “Criminal Minds.”

After “Lost” fans complained about reruns interrupting the show’s serial flow last season, the network tried an experiment: It split the season in two, airing six episodes before an extended break and then resuming with 16 additional episodes.

Although protected from “American Idol,” “Lost” now has the disadvantage of trying to draw viewers at an hour when fewer people are watching TV.

In the show’s defense, ABC noted that it beat the competition among the advertiser-favored young adult crowd, drawing 7.3 million viewers age 18 to 49 compared to the 5.8 million that tuned in to CBS’ “CSI: New York.”

But there’s no question that “Lost,” once riding big ratings, buzz and cachet, has lost significant ground.

Some fans and critics complain that the story has gotten confusing and unsatisfying.

I fear Lost will go the same way as The X-Files: by the time the last episode aired, I no longer cared about all the mysteries, conspiracies and sub-plots that the creators had introduced but refused to explain or conclude satisfactorily.

I wouldn't dismiss the show as hype. I think there is something bold and original about the concept behind the series, particularly for a prime time TV show (unless you think Gilligan's Island qualifies as an antecedent), but the creators can't prolong the mystery of the island forever. I find all the mysteries within mysteries (rather like those Russian Babushka dolls) and cryptic dialogue to be both maddening and addictive.

Thanks for the news Cinder!

As discussed with you, I'll repost this article in the LOST thread and lock this one.

Snow, soundtrackradio, sorry for the inconvenience!
