'Lost' Final Season Schedule: Ruined By the Olympics?

LostJack and Kate may have crashed two planes into the South Pacific already, but there's at least one thing at 'Lost' that is still up in the air: its schedule.

According to Fancast, a mysterious blog article (which has since vanished like the island itself) reported that 'Lost' showrunner Carlton Cuse indicated during a recent visit to Harvard University that the show would be taking a mid-season hiatus to avoid airing head-to-head against the Winter Olympics.LostJack and Kate may have crashed two planes into the South Pacific already, but there's at least one thing at 'Lost' that is still up in the air: its schedule.

According to Fancast, a mysterious blog article (which has since vanished like the island itself) reported that 'Lost' showrunner Carlton Cuse indicated during a recent visit to Harvard University that the show would be taking a mid-season hiatus to avoid airing head-to-head against the Winter Olympics.

However, fellow 'Lost' honcho Damon Lindelof has refuted that report. In a statement to fansite SL-Lost, Lindelof indicated that "they haven't even given us a date yet. I don't even know what night it's going to be on. We've been on Wednesday's at 9 for awhile, but ABC's comedies are actually working. And I actually like 'Modern Family' and 'Cougar Town', so I'm not sure that they'll move them."

"I don't know what it means for us," he added, "but all I've ever heard is mid-to-late January. We're doing 18 hours -- two hour premiere, two hour finale -- so if we end in mid-May, we can't premiere any later than late January."

At this point, then, only one thing is clear: if 'Lost' does go up against the Winter Olympics, at least we might finally have an explanation for those polar bears.
