    Can someone tell me what the attraction is in watching a show about fat morbidly obese people losing weight? Does the “Biggest Loser” actually describe each viewer of the show?

    Thank heavens for the Lost encore last night, because as I’ve said before, Tuesday is the worst night for TV of the whole week…and THAT, more than anything, is probably why NCIS is such a hit.

    Surprised the repeat of LOST’s season finale did so poorly. I watched it because I find the cliffnotes to be very informative. Too late now, but ABC should have aired repeats of LOST in the summer w/ cliffnotes.

    Ok, apparently my ABC was the only one (or one of the only ones) that had a telethon on instead of Scrubs and Better Off Ted. Needless to say I am not pleased.

    Oh and Linda — I bet it has a huge DVR boost. I know I DVRed it. I only watch Lost live w/ commercials the night it is on. If I know what happens, I would much rather tape it and watch it later w/out commercials.

    LOST fans must have watched this “Lost in 5 Minutes” recap to get caught up:
