An Extra Hour for Lost and Grey’s

ON

TV Guide reports that both “Lost” and “Grey’s Anatomy” are getting an extra hour this season before the summer hiatus.

With a 14th hour of Lost now a done deal, the show’s finale will swell to three hours. But, in what can only be described as an unorthodox scheduling move, the first hour of that finale will air on May 15, and then we have to wait two weeks — until May 29 — to get the last two hours! That’s right, no Lost on May 22.

The reason? The “Lost” producers convinced ABC that the last two hours of “Lost” should air together, thereby freeing up an hour on the May 22. “Grey’s Anatomy” is filling that hour by expanding its season finale to two hours.
