Fearing the Loss of Lost

Full Frontal Nerdity has a strip entry that says that "the head writer was kidnapped by Nazi frogmen and a meteor destroyed the studio where it was filmed".

Lights Out Films says to check it out before it's cancelled.

A lot of folks like this show. Lost is fresh. People are enjoying watching something that isn't predictable or stale. We watch in terror. Partly because of the creepiness of the show and partly because we know there is some illogical programming terrorist waiting to pull the show.

A lot of folks also fear that with a show this good on ABC that it is destined to get cancelled. If you don't know, it is an abomination for a major network to have kick ass programming. This has happened to many promising shows.

A lot of folks also fear that the writers can't keep up this level of intense writing. The suit will probably change writers or try to make the actors work for walnuts instead of money.

It's sad that we brace for the end of good programming and anticipate the onset of crappy writing.

According to Nielsen Media Research estimates, "Lost" (6.8 rating/18 share in adults 18-49, 18.16 million viewers overall) matched its Sept. 22 premiere score in the 18-49 demo while establishing series bests in adults 18-34 (5.8/17), men 18-34 (5.1/16), teens (3.9/13) and kids (3.1/12) -- especially impressive since it faced baseball in all time zones.
