    here will be more Lost…well, at least a half hour more. It was announced on last night's Jimmy Kimmel Live that the 2-hour season finale of Lost, scheduled to air Sunday, May 23, from 9:00pm-11:00pm, will actually run a half-hour longer, until 11:30pm. The nightly local news will air at 11:30pm, followed by the Jimmy Kimmel Live: Aloha to Lost special, which will air at 12:05am. All tolled, there will be five-and-a-half hours of Lost programming on May 23, as the finale will be preceded by a two-hour retrospective titled Lost: The Final Journey. As well, the original two-hour Pilot episode will air the previous night, May 22, as an "enhanced" episode, complete with Pop-Up Video-style facts. Clearly, the Powers That Be at ABC recognize the conclusion of Lost as a major television event, as they are going all out for those fans that have spent the last six years of our lives obsessing over the show. (Can you imagine being someone who saw the first season and then trying to jump into the finale? Talk about confused!)

    If there is more news regarding the Lost finale weekend, we here at TVOvermind will have it. Namaste.


    i say WOOHOO!!!! to that!:bolian:

    Y'know, they're generally 42 (!) minutes without ads, a two-hour US TV show is 84 minutes without ads - I figure they're aiming for 108 for the DVD... I wonder if it'll be in real time? Or called "108"

    ^ Hadn't thought of that. Someone here was asking about it not too long ago.

    Sounds like a reasonable theory. Shows minus ad time usually are between 42 and 44 minutes.

    43 * (2.5) = 107.5

    It's going to be such a great episode. :)

    Of course, us UK types won't get the 108, even on DVD, cos of the different frame rates between PAL and NTSC - it'll be, like 103 minute or something for us...

    SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

    This makes me very happy. :D

    And a 108 minute finale (minus the ads) would be perfect. :D

    Yeah, knowing these idiots they will use the extra 30 min for more ads. :(

    ^Probably.

    But I love the idea of it being 108 minutes. I'm so excited to see this!

    Knowing ABC, I find it more likely that it's going to be 108 minutes of commercials rather than extra show...

    Longer Lost? Sweet! :techman:

    I hear they're charging a lot for commercials for the final episode so I'm sure there's plenty of network self-interest here.

    I was excited about this news last night. I'll take anything I can get to stave off the inevitable.
