The long-awaited “Lost” finale, scheduled to air on Sunday, May 23rd, has been extended an additional 30 minutes. This should make Losties happy, assuming they aren’t getting mad at you because they consider the length of the show to be a spoiler.
The producers of ABC’s hit drama have shot so much crucial material for the show’s hugely anticipated series finale that the network has agreed to extend the last episode by an extra half hour…
Yes, I’m sure it’s all crucial material, and it has nothing to do with selling additional ad space.
The supersizing of the finale is the latest adjustment to what might as well be called “The ‘Lost’ Weekend.” ABC is airing an “enhanced” (pop-ups) version of the show’s original two-hour pilot on May 22. On Sunday there’s a two-hour retrospective titled “Lost: The Final Journey,” followed by the finale, then the local news (which was preempted in the first-blush recounting of this plan) and Kimmel post-show.

So, that Sunday has four and a half hours of “Lost,” then the news, then Kimmel’s “Aloha to Lost” special. Hmmm… I dunno, I could use some more “Lost.” Will the local news also be about “Lost”? Maybe the anchors can dress as characters on the show. Anything that might help get some attention for this under-the-radar series.
