'LOST' & FOUND
ABC'S hit serial "Lost" seems to be losing steam and viewers are blaming frequent repeats of the complicated castaway drama.
On the flip side, "24," an equally sophisticated thriller, continues to grow in its fifth year.

How come?

It's because "24's" network, Fox, shows the entire season straight through - no reruns ever.

"The results over the past two seasons have been gratifying," says Fox scheduling guru Preston Beckman. "But they've only been gratifying because '24' is phenomenal."

Since Fox began airing "24" - which stars Kiefer Sutherland as an anti-terrorist government agent - with no repeats the audience for the show has grown each year, a rare occurrence with any show that has been on TV for five seasons.

In 2003, the show averaged about 10 million viewers. By 2004, when it began to air straight through it drew roughly 12 million. And this year, it has joined the elite group of TV dramas in the to 10 -averaging more than 14 million viewers per show.

"It was a huge leap of faith," says Beckman. "We hoped the move would result in higher ratings and fortunately we were right. Usually by the fourth season these things are beginning to sag."

"Lost" meanwhile, was drawing a phenomenal 18 million viewers per show last year - its debut season.

But has since dropped to about 12 million this year - and repeats are drawing only about 10 million.

Both show are serials, meaning one show picks up where the last left off.

But watercooler chatter that seems so important to TV shows these days has all but died for "Lost."

"What they are doing makes no sense," wrote one frustrated "Lost" fan on alt.tv.lost, one of the many Internet group sites devoted to discussing "Lost." "They should have done what '24' does every season. No breaks in the episodes just show every episode in order. 'Lost' is not a stand alone series so why treat it like it is!"

The answer, say program execs at both networks, is about the bottom line.

"When you have an asset like 'Lost' you have to make the most of it," an ABC spokeswoman says. "It would be a luxury to schedule it straight through."

The rub is that the TV season is generally 36 weeks long, but in order to keep TV shows turning a profit at studios and networks, only 22 episodes are produced each year. And for ABC - which is slowly rebuilding its schedule with hit dramas like "Gray's Anatomy," "Desperate Housewives" and "Lost" - it would be a turnoff for advertisers if they were told that any of these shows would not be returning until January.

ABC has also tried the programming strategy in the past with series like "NYPD Blue" and "Alias" - without much success."I certainly don't think it's helping them [with viewers]," says Horizon Media's TV analyst Brad Adgate. '

"Both '24' and 'Lost' have very loyal audiences who follow each show week to week. I definitely think there's some frustration when you get constant repeats and premeptions."

Sounds like my last post in the Lost thread...

Perhaps it would be better if they aired Lost like they do with 24. Start it later in the year so you get more consecutive weeks. Runs much more smoothly that way.

Desmond isn't the only Lost alumni that's guest starred on 24.

Man, what a great episode tonight. The latter half of the season always shapes up to be the best. The musical score during the Collette Stenger capture was excellent

I wonder if next season will be Germany vs. Jack Bauer

Man oh maaaaaaan and that ending. Audrey's dead meat.

Oh, I missed a couple of minutes in the beginning of the episode. What did Wayne tell Aaron?

Ah, but did she or didn't she? I think the writers of 24 hate women, they love making them soooooooo evvviillll!! Wayne told Aaron he had some info for him and wanted to meet him privately.But of course, the terrorists know everything, CTU should higher their intelligence people. Also, he said I hope their isn't a cougar in the woods when I go running through them later in the show.

Regarding the above article, many of us have been bitching about that for a long time.

I have given up on Prison Break, Lost is next. 24 advertises the next episode with the phrase "non-stop season" of 24. Thank you very much. That's why I hope people stop watching Prison Break and eventually Lost or any show that jerks the viewers around. They lose money when ratings drop, ratings drop when they yank the scheduling around and move shows around. Maybe they will figure this out and stop this recent practice.
