DarkUFO - Lost

Thanks to B3RT4 for the heads up.

Because Bones aired instead of Lie to Me, it’s hard to do completely direct comparisons to last week, but everything was up from last week, a bit, including American Idol. TV watching in general was up a bit from last Wednesday. Lost bounced (at least a little) off its series lows last week to a 3.9 in the demo. The second installment of The Unusuals dropped from last week’s premiere of a 2.1 rating down to a 1.9 rating. People said I was crazy for predicting the show would be canceled with only one data point, but now there’s two.

Here is ABC's take.

"Lost" (9:00-10:00 p.m.)
Growing week to week opposite Fox's "American Idol" in the 9 o'clock hour, ABC's "Lost" beat out its CBS and NBC competition in the slot by wide margins among Adults 18-49. In fact, "Lost" marked its 12th straight original airing as Wednesday's No. 1 scripted TV show in Adults 18-49.

* "Lost" was up week to week in both Total Viewers (+5% - 9.0 million vs. 8.6 million) and Adults 18-49 (+3% - 3.9/10 vs. 3.8/10).

DVR Playback for "Lost": Season-to-date, "Lost" is one of the Top 5 most popularly recorded and played back shows on television in Total Viewers and the No. 2 biggest gainer in Adults 18-49, pulling in an additional 1.9 million viewers and picking up 1.0 rating point among young adults (a +21% jump) from the first-reported Live + Same Day numbers to the finalized Live + 7 Day averages.
