Here are the Nielsen ratings for the last episode of Lost:
507 - The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham
9.82 million viewers
4.4/11 18-49 viewers
I see a trend, every second episode gets less than ratings. Not coincidentally every second episode is a mythologically driven episode. That’s been the formula since season 4. So the general public doesn’t seem to approve of the mythological episodes. How sad.
