ABC's Lost Gamble: No New Episodes Until 2007
Posted on July 20, 2006
ABC just announced that there will be no Lost until 2007. Apparently, ABC exec listened to fans who hate the current schedule of showing 6 episodes in the Fall, then going on hiatus, then picking up again in the Spring. Most fans wanted a straight, uninterrupted stretch for the season.
EW reports that ABC Entertainment President Stephen McPherson says in a statement, "We've just really listened to the audience about the repeats, and it felt like this was really the best way to run the show. It's a very, very difficult show to produce. You know, if we could run 22 straight in the fall, we probably would. But we just can't get the shows done in that amount of time.
Hmmm....we like having uninterruped Lost episodes. On the other hand, this means that we have to wait until 2007 to find out what happens next.
