Exclusive: ABC Supersizes ‘Lost’ Finale

Fans will now get five full hours of “Lost” programming the night of the show’s swan song


ABC has found more time to say goobye to "Lost."

The network has decided to supersize its farewell to the iconic drama, expanding a previously announced one-hour pre-show to two full hours. The special is now expected to air from 7-9 p.m. on Sunday, May 23, right before the two-hour "Lost" finale.

Add in a special "Jimmy Kimmel Live" — "Lost: After the Final Rose"– airing that Sunday, and ABC is now planning to devote no less than five hours of airtime to the "Lost" swan song.

That’s really showing some (Dharma) initiative!

Meanwhile, "America’s Funniest Home Videos" will now have its finale a week earlier. (Wonder if there’ll be a cliffhanger?)
