Lost Takes Over for Grey's on ABC's Winter Schedule

Lost Takes Over for Grey's on ABC's Winter Schedule

ABC finally announced its schedule for the winter part of the TV season today — making official what the network would do without Grey's Anatomy and the other shows that are out of episodes due to the writers' strike. The biggest news: a new time slot for Lost, which will start airing Jan. 31 in the regular Grey's slot, 9 p.m. on Thursdays. Lost only has eight of the 16 episodes planned for this season, but something is better than nothing, right?

The other big news: Cashmere Mafia finally has a time slot! No, ABC didn't take my advice and put it up against NBC's Lipstick Jungle. It will premiere Thursday, Jan. 3, at 10 p.m., but its regular slot will be Wednesdays at 9 p.m., where it will battle American Idol for at least part of the season.

ABC picked Eli Stone, a new show about a lawyer who thinks he has a spiritual calling, to air after Lost; it too will premiere Jan. 31. The other big premieres: The Dancing with the Stars spinoff, Dance War: Bruno Vs. Carrie Ann, will air Mondays starting Jan. 7; Wife Swap and Supernanny will air before Cashmere on Wednesdays starting Jan. 2; and Oprah's Big Give will air Sunday nights starting in early March.

What do you make of the news? Glad you won't have to stay up as late for Lost? Thrilled that Cashmere Mafia will really air after all?

My husband is so bummed because he works Thursday nights and we are huge Lost fans...hopefully the strike will be resolved soon and we won't have to feel guilty about downloading from itunes!

ehhh I am not a big Lost fan. I am a bit disappointed that I won't even get to see Grey's in rerun but whatever. I guess I will be watching a hell of a lot less television in 2008.
