    New `Lost' Hits All-Time Ratings Low - AP 2/15/07

    New `Lost' Hits All-Time Ratings Low

    LOS ANGELES (AP) -- "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, owned by The Walt Disney Co., has worked hard to try to protect a show that helped turn the network's fortunes around, moving it to 10 p.m. EST Wednesday this year 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 current season in two, airing six episodes before an extended break and then resuming with 16 additional episodes.

    The show's Feb. 7 return was heavily promoted and drew nearly 14.5 million viewers. But the bounce didn't last, with the show slumping this week.

    I gave up on Lost after last season. It's gotten too Twin Peak-ish for me. And not the GOOD Twin Peaks if you know what I mean.

    The serial interruptions are one reason it is coming off annoying. And the 10pm time is really too late for us to enjoy it. But that is what Tivo is for, makes a lot easier for sure.

    For me the sad thing is that with all the breaks in the seasons, reruns, recaps, LONGGGGGGG flashbacks and episodes created from bits of other episodes I've almost lost all interest. The time of night and day of the week the show is on aren't that big of a deal, I TiVO it anyway. It's lack of direction and the continual drop in storyline quality that are kiling it for me.

    If they ever resolve anything on this frustrating show I'll catch it on DVD or worse yet YouTube. Disney/ABC/The Show's Producers took too long to get it moving and it's been going on so long you almost don't care anymore. All to milk extra ratings out of one of the better shows ABC has produced in ages.

    Lost hasn't "Jumped The Shark" for me yet, but it's on the motorcycle, heading up the ramp and gathering speed for it's launch.
    IMO - YMMV - FYIGM

    It's a combination of the later air time and the fact that they have waited until half way into season 3 to actually start answering the questions they posed way back in season 1. It was intrigueing for a while, but it's really "lost" its momentum now.

    Yup. That's why "Lost" stands for my interest. I dug that show the first season. Then it got too weird, and too little was revealed too slowly. I got to the point where I figured, screw it, I'll just wait until the end of the final season and then read a fan site to find out what happened.

    i have never watched lost because i figured just what alot of you are saying, abc and touchstone are trying to lengthen what is essentailly a one season story. it's the same thing that happened to twin peaks and almost happened to desparate housewives. I think the big mistake made is that they only showed 6 episodes before taking such a long break. OTher shows have taken breaks but they showed more shows in the first part of the season. I wish them luck and hope they can get back on track

    This was the straw that broke the camel's back for me.

    I'm pretty much done and I've been watching it faithfully since the first season.
