Lost Returns on Wed., Jan. 21


ABC will premiere the fifth season of “Lost” on Wednesday, Jan. 21.

“Lost” will air Wednesdays at 9 p.m., after airing on Thursdays last season. The current occupant of the Wednesday 9 p.m. berth, ABC’s sophomore season drama “Private Practice,” will be relocated when “Lost” returns.

ABC is expected to make more Wednesday schedule changes in the near future given the weak perf of 8 p.m.’s “Pushing Daisies” and 10 p.m.’s “Dirty Sexy Money” this fall.

“lost” will bow Jan. 21 with two back-to-back episodes from 9-11 p.m., preceded at 8 p.m. by a clip recap show.
