501, 502 Ratings

Ah yes, back to the numbers that I love to hate.

Here are the Nielsen ratings for the last two episodes of Lost:

501 – Because You Left

11.66  million viewers

5.2/13  18-49 viewers

502 – The Lie

11.08 million viewers

5.0/12  18-49 viewers

This is not good people.  Take a look at some of the other ratings.  There were about 12.1 million people who watched the finale.  Almost that many came back to watch the premiere.  Premieres usually get way more viewers than normal episodes.  The season 4 premiere got 16 million viewers.  I don’t think the show is going to get canceled, but this is still a bad sign.  The worst thing that could happen is probably a cut in the budget.  I really don’t want that to happen.

    To Quote Jimmy Kimmell, “I feel sorry of anyone that doesn’t watch Lost.” Truly, they are missing out. I wish the numbers were higher too, but you can’t make people have great taste and I don’t think we’ll be impacted by the loss of a few. The DVR numbers won’t be in for a couple weeks and those numbers will be huge…I promise you!

    Ahhh it’s because of people like me who use ‘alternate means’ to watch!

    Also — Aunt J-ha is right about those DVR numbers.
