Lost, Grey's Get Bonus Hours to End the Season

Lost, Grey's Get Bonus Hours to End the Season


Lost and Grey's Anatomy are two shows that like to have not just finales, but finale events. And somehow, even in this strike-shortened year, they're still going to manage to pull off super-sized final episodes.

Lost was originally going to air a two-hour finale in May, but then the producers decided they could produce an extra hour — and, according to TV Guide, they convinced ABC that the final two hours had to air together. That meant the finale could no longer fit on the same night with the Ugly Betty and Grey's finales — so it will now air a week later, and Grey's will get to wrap up its season with a two-hour finale, too.

So: On May 15, Ugly Betty, Grey's, and Lost will all air as normal, with Lost showing the first hour of its finale. The next week, the finale of Betty will air along with the two-hour conclusion to Grey's. And then, on May 29, ABC will repeat the first hour of the Lost finale, followed by the two final hours of the show. Whew!

I'm not in love with the idea of taking a week off between the parts of the Lost finale — really, haven't we done enough waiting this season? But if that's what it takes to get more Lost, I suppose I can live with it. And Grey's always does interesting things with its big episodes, so I'm curious to see what they cook up this time. (Hopefully, no shark-jumping ferry deaths. Yeah, still bitter.)

"I'm not in love with the idea of taking a week off between the parts of the Lost finale — really, haven't we done enough waiting this season? But if that's what it takes to get more Lost, I suppose I can live with it." I share your sentiments, Buzz. I'm no fan of the space between the first and remaining hours of the Lost finale, but I'll take it if that is the requirement to have the extra hour.
