Yes, I most definately am not a fan of the scheduling for "Lost" this year. Three weeks on and off...it just seems like you're always waiting for "Lost" to come back and as soon as its back...its gone!
The producers of Lost are seeking a new scheduling model for the show in the US to curb the frequency of repeats.
Most US series, including Lost, typically air 22 new episodes each season over a period of 36 weeks, meaning that new episodes are often punctuated with repeats of old episodes.
US Lost fans have complained that having to wait many weeks for a new episode has ruined their enjoyment of the show.
24 has successfully avoided the problem by delaying its return from September to January each year before airing its full season without interruption.
Although Lost's broadcaster, ABC, is unwilling to adopt a similar strategy, show producers have come up with a compromise solution.
"We're lobbying ABC for when the show is on, it's on, and when it's off, it's off," exec producer Damon Lindelof told E! Online. "So, we want to air it in three acts next year. You know, blocks of seven, seven and eight. But in order to do that, we have to roll the show out in October instead of September, and hopefully that will work out."
