Zap2It - TV ratings: Good start for 'Lost' as 'Idol' tops Tuesday 
The final season of "Lost" opened to bigger ratings across the board than last year's season 5 premiere, helping ABC to a solid second-place finish in adults 18-49 Tuesday. The Alphabet still trailed FOX and CBS overall, though....

9pm: "Lost" season premiere (12.4 million, 6.9/11)
10pm: "Lost" season premiere (11.75 million, 6.5/11)

AP - More questions as `Lost' begins its last season 
Hopeful, breathless, even fretful over what may lie ahead or be forever unexplained, "Lost" fans have welcomed back the ABC mystical thriller for its sixth season — the beginning of its long-coming, too-close-for-comfort finale.

The end is coming May 23, according to "Lost" co-creators Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof, who made it official Tuesday during their guest appearances on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"

The first two of the final 18 "Lost" hours had aired earlier in the evening — and won a warm reception from the audience.

This season premiere attracted 12.1 million viewers, against first-place CBS dramas "NCIS: Los Angeles" (with 16.4 million) and "The Good Wife" (12.7 million), according to the Nielsen Co. In the advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-old demographic, "Lost" beat its nearest competitor, NBC's "Biggest Loser," by 51 percent.

But did the "Lost" opener succeed in addressing the pair of island mysteries gnawing at viewers since last May?

What was the upshot of the kookie nuclear explosion Jack (Matthew Fox) masterminded to rewrite history and render the series' whole story line moot? And what's the scoop with the dead John Locke (Terry O'Quinn) coexisting with his very-much-alive John Locke look-alike?...

TV.com - Is This the First New Lost Still? 


Oh, you tricky Lost producers. Telling us we won't see new footage from Season 6 until the premiere on February 2. I'm wagging my finger at you.

The latest promotional video hyping the new season starts off like all the rest, only backwards. Old footage is rewound (John Locke falling out of a building, the plane unexploding), further enforcing the "reset timeline" theory, but there's one nanosecond of footage that's a real treasure.

Approximately 15 seconds into the 30-second spot, there's a glimpse of a blonde holding a gun. That blonde is Claire, looking a little more scraggly than usual. In fact, and this has been pointed out by messageboard users, she's looking a little bit Rousseau in the frame, all crazy-eyed, jungle-hearted, and of course, packing some heat.

Theory time! What did Rousseau and Claire have in common? They both gave birth on an island that doesn't allow babies to be born. And apparently they're both trotting through a jungle with guns. Is Claire the new Rousseau?

Are things simply repeating on the island in some weird version of the time-loop theory? Is Ajira 316 the new Oceanic 815? Are Cesar and Ilana a new Kate and Jack? Is that copilot who died when Ajira 316 crashed the new copilot who died when Oceanic 815 crashed? Am I looking into things way too hard when I should just enjoy the ride? Probably. What do you think?

TVGuide.com - Naveen Andrews to Guest on Law & Order: SVU 
Lost star Naveen Andrews has signed on to film a guest spot on an episode of Law & Order: SVU, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.

The details of his role are being kept under wraps for now, but the episode starts filming in the next week or so in New York.

Andrews, 40, plays Sayid Jarrah on ABC's Lost, which is still shooting its final season in Hawaii. (A source tells us they're on Episode 6 of 18.)

Let's not jump to any conclusions though. "As with previous seasons, not all cast members are in every episode," says a studio rep. It's entirely possible that Andrews will finish his SVU gig and return to Hawaii to shoot more Lost. But the timing does at least raise the question: Is Andrews, and thus Sayid, done for the season?

Before Lost, Andrews was best known for playing a sensitive explosives expert who wooed Juliette Binoche in Anthony Minghella's The English Patient.

Andrews' SVU episode will air in January 2010, right around the time that Lost's sixth and final season premieres.

TVGuide.com - Let's FlashForward and Get Lost with Sonya Walger 
If you thought Lost was a tricky show filled with twists and turns, FlashForward has a few mind games of its own to play. TVGuide.com sat down with a star from both ABC shows.

One of the many issues FlashForward raises is whether or not you can change the future. Sonya Walger's character, Olivia, finds herself struggling to make sure the glimpse she saw in her flash doesn't come true, because it would mean the end of her marriage to Mark (Joseph Fiennes).

What does the rest of Olivia's flash forward reveal? Can her marriage survive these circumstances? Walger discusses that and more. First, let's get the major Lost question out of the way ...

TVGuide.com: All right, when are you returning to Lost?
Sonya Walger:
No idea. Not a clue. I don't even know if I'm in the last season.

TVGuide.com: Do you think Penny should die in the end?
Walger:
Are you saying in a sacrificial way, Penny needs to die? I hope not because Penny's so great. There would be mass outcry, but you know what, they killed off Charlie, so anything can happen. I feel like her dad should be the one to bite it. I am not kidding.

TVGuide.com: Were you nervous about joining another mythology-heavy show?
Walger:
No, not at all. It's funny, I didn't even think of Lost when I read that script. It sounds bizarre or naïve, but I really didn't. I read the script and I was so excited by the writing and by this character, by this woman who is complicated and says 'I hate you' to her husband when she means 'I love you.' She's a professional and a surgeon and a mother. I didn't see any similarities to Lost. I honestly still don't. I see them as big shows that have one big exciting event, the catalyst that gets it all going with an ensemble cast. I see that, but after that they just part ways. There isn't a mythology to FlashForward in the same way. There's not codes to decipher ... There's not islands moving and polar bears and smoke monsters, that's not in our show ... yet anyway.

TVGuide.com: Did you ever work with Dominic Monaghan on Lost?
Walger:
This is the joke of me being a part of Lost, I haven't met three-quarters of that cast. I'm not kidding. I would be as star-struck as you would be if I met Matthew Fox. I actually only met Dominic on a photo shoot for FlashForward — that was the first time we met. He comes into play in quite a significant way in this show. I can't really tell you anymore than that. He's a good part of it.

TVGuide.com: We haven't seen all of Olivia's flash-forward. What can you tease about what we haven't seen?
Walger:
In the flash-forward, the bit that you have seen is that Lloyd [Jack Davenport] gets up from the bed and gets a text message from someone. The person he gets a text message from is very, very unexpected.

TVGuide.com: Can Mark and Olivia's marriage survive this flash-forward?
Walger:
Who knows? I think it's completely fascinating that just the ghost of this might be what undoes their marriage, or it might be what strengthens them and keeps them together. It might be the tension of it alone [that] drives Mark to drink. It's such an interesting idea that just the threat of something might be what leads you towards it. It may well be that they get to a breaking point and then say, 'No, this isn't happening to us. We're going to make this work.'

TVGuide.com: Do you have any personal belief in fate?
Walger:
I don't really. The word fate doesn't really mean much to me in some ways. I think we make our own. Minute by minute you decide who you are and who you're likely to be. You make the choices hour by hour, just in the present. I don't believe there's some roadmap laid out that we're headed towards.

TVGuide.com: Give us a nice tease for what's coming up for Olivia.
Walger:
She's going to be forced quite soon to deal with whether or not you can change the future. She keeps being reminded — evidence keeps being presented all around her — that you can't change it. Every time she thinks she's seen the last of Lloyd and that she's managed to avoid it, he keeps coming back.

Do you think FlashForward has more twists than Lost?

Ben Linus Wins Best Lost Bad Guy 
Readers of >Totalscifionline.com and Lost Magazine have voted Ben Linus as the show’s top Bad Guy.

The shadowy character, played by the Emmy award-winning Michael Emerson, was first introduced in season two, when he initially pretended to have been stranded on the island after his hot air balloon crashed.

However, Ben was soon revealed to be the leader of the Others, and his later evil deeds included kidnapping Jack, Sawyer and Kate, attempting to kill Penelope, and killing Locke. But, of course, the distinction between heroes and villains is never clear-cut on Lost, and there are times when Ben seems almost sympathetic, particularly when we see his childhood in season five.

Ethan and Charles Widmore received the second and third amount of votes, while there were also votes for Juliet, Sawyer, Locke, Jack and er, Vincent the dog.

The new villains-themed issue of Titan Publishing’s official Lost Magazine is released on 13 October 2009 (US) and 29 October 2009 (UK).
