If you’re a fan of the ABC series “Lost,” you can let out a huge sigh of relief. The fantasy series will be returning for its sixth and final season next month without a hitch. There was speculation that President Obama would address the nation with his State of the Union speech during the show’s time slot, but thats no longer the case.
According to one of the show’s producers, the State of the Union address won’t interfere with “Lost’s” season premiere on February 2nd. Carlton Cuse broke the news on his Twitter page and wrote, “No State of the Union conflict with LOST! We go Feb. 2!” Let’s all do back flips in 5,4,3,2,….. I love Obama, but if he came in between me, Jack and Sawyer there would have been a serious problem.
The big debate was whether or not the State of the Union speech would take place on January 26th or February 2nd, which initially caused an uproar in the sci-fi community. White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said at a news briefing Friday…
“I don’t foresee a scenario in which millions people who hope to finally get some conclusion with Lost are pre-empted by the president,” Gibbs said, answering a question relayed by ABC Radio’s Ann Compton. “You can quote a senior administration official.”
How bad ass does a show have to be to take priority over the President? Was “Dallas” able to do that? What about the final episode of “M.A.S.H.” or “Seinfeld?”
Are you going to tune in for the season premiere of Lost?
