Get your calendars out. The season 6 premiere will be on Tuesday, February 2, 2010. They’ll have their usual useless clip show first, from 8:00-9:00. Then there will be a 2 hour premiere from 9:00-11:00. After that Lost will stay in the Tuesday 9:00 timeslot. I’ll repeat that for people who don’t read well:
Tuesday, February 2, 2010 9:00
So the show is moving to Tuesdays. That’s fine with me. I’d prefer Wednesdays, but Tuesday at 9:00 is good too. I’m 100% sure that I won’t be watching the episode live, but that’s fine. I just got a new PC, and I’ve become obsessed with Windows Media Center. Wednesdays were better but Thursdays were painful (for a while there it looked like ABC was going to move Lost into Ugly Betty’s old spot). I also look forward to blogging more throughout the week. When it’s on Wednesdays then I have to stay up all night to write it, because I watch ten other shows on Thursdays. Hopefully I can get a more healthy blogging schedule this year.
Here’s something that I’m a little concerned about, someone said that Lost would take a hiatus during the Winter Olympics. I’m OK with that, I’ll be all over the Olympics (I happen to reside nearby), but the Olympics are from February 12-28. That means we’ll get two episodes then two weeks off then the rest of the episodes. That sounds a little crazy. And I don’t really understand why ABC cares at all about the Olympics. NBC has the broadcast rights, as usual. Does ABC plan to suspend all their shows during those two weeks? It’s not like the Olympics are going to pull in crazy numbers or anything. Remember Lost is usually up against American Idol.
