ABC will begin airing new fourth-season episodes of “Lost” Jan. 31.
Many speculated fresh “Lost” might remain lost until next fall in the event of a long strike. ABC's move to schedule "Lost" at midseason defies the preferences of showrunners Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof, who did not think the last episode of “Lost” scripted before the writers’ strike made for the best of season finales.
Locke, Hurley, Kate, et al will be taking up regular residence away from Wednesday night for the first time. They’ll now be replacing the incorrigible Dr. McSteamy & Co. by inheriting the “Grey’s Anatomy” timeslot at 9 p.m. Thursday (where they are certain to crush NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice”).
ABC’s new drama “Eli Stone,” from a bunch of the guys behind “Brothers & Sisters,” will follow at 10 p.m. Thursdays, replacing the Christopher Titus crapfest “Big Shots.” “Stone” is about a thirtysomething attorney (Jonny Lee Miller) who finds himself plagued with “visions” that take him in not-always-lawyerly directions.
"Lost's" old Wednesdays-At-10 timeslot will be taken over by "Cashmere Mafia."
