Rejoice Lost fans!

Though yesterday we thought it was a definite possibility that the premiere of Lost was going to be pushed back a week in favor of President Obama's State of Union address, today we've learned that your fervor has won out!

Lost wins the right to premiere on Groundhog's Day!

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs made the announcement when an ABC radio reporter asked him about it this morning. Robert responded:

"I don't foresee a scenario in which millions of people who hope to finally get some conclusion with Lost are preempted by the president."

And the world of geeks and couch potatoes take a collective sigh of relief.

    Pyrex, it is easy to accept you going after celebs but your fan base is going to shrink quite a bit if you take pot shots at the average Joe/Jane.
    Just because you don't "get" Sci-Fi does not mean you need to label fans of it: " the world of geeks and couch potatoes".
    Partying in WeHo with porn stars, directors, and producers like you do is not everybody's cup of tea, BTW.

    they all know nobody wants to watch Obama stick his nose in the air and lie to 300 million people, i'm sure Lost will pull more viewers in than the state of the union address.



  9. 9

    -_- Fuck you Perez. If you don't watch LOST stop posting about it & bashing the fans as well. Bye



  10. 10

    Gotta love lost :)



  11. 11

    verbatim what you said yesterday…….



  12. 12

    Can't wait for that stupid show to be over with but I am somewhat curious to see what the last episode will be about…I won't watch but read about it the next day though.



  13. 13

    I LOVE LOST



  14. 14

    wow, perez, the first post was much more lovely. "couch potatoes and geeks"??? considering you spend your life critisizing and using others pain and imperfections to your own advantage. what it it they say about people who go out of their way to talk about other people in a negative manner?? i'll tell you what, their the ones whos lives are truely lacking and sad. so what, you get paid $$ and have millions of followers; your life still wont be remebered as anything but sad in the end, EVERYONE KNOWS THIS.

    And to all the haters of lost, you obviously have not watched it or taken the time to enjoy it. maybe it's the same people who spend their time wasted on drugs and illegal situations for entertainment. for me, it's absolutely the most brillant show ever on tv, this coming from a person who is high on life and actually enjoys to be apart of great things in this world.



  15. 15

    got it the first time, perez.



  16. 16

    "I don't foresee a scenario in which millions of people who hope to finally get some conclusion with Lost are preempted by the president."
    What? Robert Gibbs is such a clown.



  17. 17

    OMG, y'all. Lighten up. Being a geek is cool. It ensures employment in our disintegrating society more than anything else except being born into wealth. I'm glad Obama isn't going to pre-empt Lost. Of course, it's been so long I don't even remember where we last left off.



  18. 18

    Only in America…



  19. 19

    is this some kind of hidden advertisement BS, perez? fucking piece of crap news posts..



  20. 20

    LOST is frckn amazing. Until this day I haven't seen a better show. =]



  21. 21

    Screw Lost.



  22. 22

    I heart lost! If you don't like it, that's cool. I don't like ur outfits, i wouldn't caught dead in them, being a nerd or a couch patato! You R-tard!

    Re: Dark Phoenix
    LMAO well now we can all sleep at night.



  24. 24

    Lost fans complaining about this got no life.



  25. 25

    You are such a moron Perez…..I hate the fact that I can't stop reading this stupid sh*t you post on here. I'm neither a geek or a couch potato and I love Lost.



  26. 26

    so FUNNY AMERICANS!
    you rather watch a stupid television show than listen to the man that will possibly save america the country.
    enjoy the next three wars.



  27. 27

    I make it my business to follow what goes on in the country, because it's my right/privilege and obligation.. But seriously, I don't think I'll miss much if I don't watch Obama address the a nation. It's not like there won't be another State of the Union address next year, I kid, I kid. LOL. but seriously, people, don't get your panties in a bunch because we like a show. Other people like crappier things and so what.



  28. 28

    Our priorities as a nation are pathetic.



  29. 29

    Such a relief.



  30. 30

    Another reason why Obama is the most unprofessional and f-ed up president we have had



  31. 31

    Wow, way to bash Lost fans asshat.



  32. 32

    Re: jjswix – ROFL…its funny how everyone outside off America loves to bash Americans,yet they're sooo extremely addicted to American pop culture.



  33. 33

    Re: jjswix – Key statement….he MIGHT. Until he says something new and worth saying or ACTUALLY changes something…LOST has my vote



  34. 34

    People are acting like Obama is going to give away the secret of life and we are going to HAVE to watch lost instead. Obama made a good choice…who cares when he speaks? its gonna happen and we all have TIVO….lets chill.

    ANNDDD Ill be the first to admit that lost has been the first show ever to make me laugh, cry, wonder, and keep me coming back for more. Its awesome, the writers are awesome I cannot WAIT till this season comes back…Obama didnt get my vote for political reasons…but he got one from me today….good move Obama…good move



  35. 35

    Fred and Nancy tell Obanna what to do, Dick Durbin tells Obanna what to do, Obanna bows down to forgein leaders, now TV companies tell Obanna what to do, REALLY A STRONG PRESIDENT —— NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  36. 36

    Obama is a fucking piece of shit. End of story.



  37. 37

    Re: Fathom – No we would just rather watch a stupid show over a complete fucking moron like Obama.



  38. 38

    Re: jjswix – Uhhhh NOOOOOOOO Obviously you have no clue that American's have no faith in that piece a shit of a Pres they call Obama. Fuck him. Can't wait until he is out in 2012



  39. 39

    Sure, go on insulting the average, every day person but You'll be sorry when all those average, everyday people stop buying your stupid ass books and reading your blog.

  43. 43

  45. 45

    Re: bich45 – i'm not a fan of any president except Kennedy,Jackson and Lincoln,they all tried to abolish a central bank(Federal Reserve)issuing our currency and 2 were assassinated and Jackson survived a failed attempt,i hope you know Obama has spent 18.2 times as much as Bush in 8 months and 4.7 times all presidents before him COMBINED!$$$23.7TRILLION$$$ face reality you were duped and still are.



  46. 46
