What's up with the Lost repeats?

Am I the only one annoyed with the repeats? Why can't they just show several new shows in a row? I kind of lose momentum when they throw a repeat into the middle of things.

And about that business with the smoke -- I missed all of that!! I'll admit I'm not as much of a 'junkie' as some of those folks on the fan boards, but still, was I sleeping?? I'm also in the habit of erasing the DVR as soon as I've watched a show. Maybe now I'll hang onto them a bit longer and come check here first! I didn't realize there were so many Lost fans here!

Hey Amy. I think they just want to torture us and keep up the theories for another week!

I'm with ya on the dvr thing. I just delete. I've only seen the smoke like twice. But I've heard all the hub-bub about it.

I just want more shots of Sawyer w/o his shirt on.

Ahhhhhh, every week they always seem to show the week before show before the new show and so since I missed last weeks episode I thought I would get to see it tonight and was bummed that it is a repeat from weeks ago.


And I know what you mean about the repeats.

I know this answer! DH works for a television network so told me about this.

Sweeps started last night and it runs for roughly a month. So Lost wasn't going to waste a new show on the night before Sweeps. Instead there will be a new one next week, and probably for the next few weeks, then we're back to reruns for a while.

Sweeps is when the networks push for their new shows, to get more people watching, to get more advertisers, to get more money.

There's a Spring Sweeps, runs Feb to early March, then a fall Sweeps and I can never remember when that one is, think October but I'm not sure.

Hope this explains it.

While this coming week and next week I believe are to be new episodes, the 22nd is scheduled not to be according to articles I have read due to it being up against the Olympics and American Idol 2 hour show.

While I do not like repeats, it helps me catch up on all the other shows we've taped! One less hour to watch that week!

I was just about to post the same thing - DH works for a local TV station, and the "sweeps" times are when the ratings are taken so they can figure out how much to charge for advertising for certain shows/hours, etc. There is a Feb/March sweep and an April/May sweep, as well as a Sept sweep and one in Nov, I believe. So, that's why in-between there isn't much "good" TV on - just reruns and "filler" shows. The Olympics throws a whole other wrench into it, too (notice how they put it on during winter sweeps?!!) ;-). Tricky TV shows!!

What does your DH do at the station? And what station? I am a media buyer for all forms of broadcasts :o)
