Lost Audience Goes Missing


Despite heavy promotion from ABC, last night's season-five premiere of Lost was only watched by 12.4 million viewers, down 25 percent from last year's debut. Even more concerning, the show was only able to beat Fox's new Mentalist clone, Lie To Me, by one-tenth of a ratings point (5.0 to 4.9). How long until we see ABC move the show out of the way of the American Idol juggernaut and back to its rightful place on Thursday nights? [Live Feed/HR]
