Mark it on your calendars: The final season of Lost officially returns Tuesday, Feb. 2 (appropriately, it has been noted, on Groundhog Day), at 9 p.m. E.T., which will be the show’s regular time slot.
Pros: Tuesday is a relative dry patch on the TV schedule, whereas Wednesday and especially Thursday are pile-ups. Also, Mrs. Tuned In, who gets crabby when ABC schedules Lost at 10 p.m., will be pleased. Happy wife, happy life, as they say on RHONJ.
Con: My Lost Watch duties will run head-on into my American Idol recap duties. I’m guessing Tuned Inlanders would rather I reviewed Lost first. I’m also guessing (because of the traffic Idol generates) my bosses will not care. But let me know what you think here. And rejoice!
