FEBRUARY 2ND STAYS THE DAY OF ‘LOST’ RETURN!
The White House has come to its senses and won’t hold the State of the Union speech on Feb. 2.
Dharma lovers were agag when word leaked out this week that Team Obama was mulling scheduling SOTU on the same night ABC had long ago slotted the final season premiere of “Lost.” Doing so would likely result in a one-week delay of the premiere, and many fans reacted by declaring, “This will not stand.”

ABC DELAYS FLASHFORWARD TWO MORE WEEKS
ABC is delaying the return of new episodes of its sci-fi series FlashForward by two weeks: It now returns March 18 in its Thursday 8 p.m. ET/PT timeslot rather than the original March 4.
The network gave no reason for the delay, other than to say it would allow the show to air weekly for the rest of the first season without repeats or pre-emptions (and, we presume, to take it out of the path ofAmerican Idol on Fox). Of course, according to a schedule posted by Robert J. Sawyer, author of the book on which the show is based, the show was already scheduled to run without pre-emptions before the change. Does this mean ABC is actually cutting two of the new episodes?

Lost fans rejoice! I wonder how much White House officials and ABC actually consulted with one another over this. I mean think about all the commercial programming that was bought to air during the shows premiere. Think of all the millions of dollars ABC might have Lost (heh heh) due to such a scheduling conflict. Makes you go ‘Hmmmm’.
I haven’t missed FlashFoward much since its hiatus. I had continued watching it during its season just because i want to know the why’s and where fore’s, not so much due to the fact that I felt vested in the show. So what’s another two weeks really? Are you unhappy with this shift in schedule?
