    I heard on the radio this morning and have found a few websites saying there are rumors that Lost will be moving to Monday nights at 8pm. I don't know how reputable the rumors or websites are but this would tick me off if it's true. I've already got HIMYM and Prison Break at 8pm. I'm also going to be checking out Chuck on NBC at that time. Has anyone else heard these rumors or any confirmation or denial of them? Is this move ok with you?

    The show doesn't come on the air until February. Any (non?)decision they make will change as shows are dumped because of ratings. I wouldn't even bother thinking about this until the time draws near.

    I would think Lost is, at minimum, a 9PM show, based on content. Not that that networks stick to that adage all that strictly these days.

    Unsurprisingly, I have a TiVo. Thus, I do not care what day of the week it airs. It could air at 2:30am on Sundays for all I care, as long as it shows up in "Now Playing."

    2.5 Men and Family Guy are in syndication at 5-6 in the Chicago area, not sure how much time slot matters to networks anymore regarding content.

    Unless it conflicts with other Season Passes. Then someone might have a problem. There are several shows I have to watch in reruns because there are more than 2 shows in the same slot I want to watch.

    One good way to resolve conflicts involving Lost is to stop watching it. :)

    Why would you enter a Lost thread if you don't like the show. I guess you never said you don't like the show, but with that suggestion....

    I have 3 Tivos (4 tuners) and I do care when it is on - at least as far as chosing which Tivo to use for the SP to avoid conflicts

    :confused: Are you implying that these shows have content that wouldn't be appropriate an hour earlier? I don't buy that at all.

    As to the OP, it will really depend on what timeslot ABC thinks they can best exploit when February comes. They'll have to decide whether to try and use Lost to damage another show that's doing well (and potentially hurt Lost in the process) or put it in a slot where it doesn't have a lot of competition. Either way, they won't know what slots fit those descriptions for several months. And they'll definitely want to steer clear of the American Idol juggernaut.

    I hate it when shows cluster around certain days. You end up with days where there's nothing to watch.

    I know that with Tivo I could just spread out my viewing over the week, but if I like a show I have a hard time "leaving it in the can" for any length of time!

    Not to mention that if you follow the Lost threads here at TCF, you'd better watch it the day it airs or you'll never catch up to the thread.

    Not really sure what you're asking. 2.5 Men and Family Guy are decidedly adult shows, yet WGN has decided that running them from 6-7 (I had the time wrong) is acceptable. In the past networks tried to keep the more adult shows later in the night, but as Rob mentioned that seem to be less and less common.

    I currently am recording Prison Break and Dancing with the Stars. I guess we would give up Dancing (though I would have to push my wife hard on this since she doesn't watch Lost).

    Though, as said above, things will change and I won't worry about it yet.

    The OP I'm Sure has a TiVo also, but mentioned he had conflicts.

    Nice helpful reply tho.


    I also agree that since it doesn't start till Feb. the network could change schedules many times before then.


    I usually give priority to dramas, since shows like Lost, you can get lost ( sorry for pun) if you wait till summer reruns and they don't show all episodes. I can always catch Sitcoms over the summer.

    But Mondays would suck!

    Since Dancing and Lost are both on ABC...you shouldn't have a problem.

    As long as it doesn't conflict with Heroes and 24, I'm not sure this is such a big deal. If it does, Jack Bauer is the biggest loser.

    Yep!

    They're nowhere close to programming Feb time-slots yet. It'll all depend on which shows make the cut between now and then.

    Jack may be the biggest HD loser as I think I would keep Lost and Heroes on my HD DVR and then move 24 to the SD Tivo.
