The "Lost" finale, the jewel in the crown of ABC's upcoming "Lost" weekend, has been supersized. Originally scheduled to run from 9-11 p.m. on May 23, after a two-hour recap and an hourlong Jimmy Kimmel special, the finale is now going to be two-and-a-half hours long. It will run from 9-11:30, according to the Hollywood Reporter, giving us yet another half-hour of what better be Major Conclusive Answers to Everything We Want to Know About the Island and All of the Characters We've Been Following For Years. The local news will air after the finale, and then the Kimmel show.
More is good, right? Certainly ABC must think so, since they'll now be able to sell even more top-dollar ads.
