  1. @ Paull

    Seven aired the Lost finale in primetime because of the State of Origin. No matter what they put in that slot they would have been smashed by the might of Masterchef and State of Origin.

  2. Wow, seven really had a poor week. I net they’re kicking themselves over the decision to air the finale of lost in primtime.

    I’m also wondering why it got such poor ratings, i mean 600k for something as advertised as lost!
