“Lost”: The isle of mystery returns Jan. 21

Lost5 The island is calling again…“Lost” returns to ABC on Wednesday, Jan. 21.

The fifth season of the fantasy-mystery skein 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 after “Lost” returns, ABC said Friday.

It’s expected that ABC will make more skedding changes on Wednesday 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. “Private Practice,” on the other hand, has been given a full-season order.

“Lost” will bow Jan. 21 with its usual season preem drill: two back to back segs from 9-11 p.m., preceded at 8 p.m. by a clip recap show.

(Sorry, as a reader points out, “Lost” has not previously bowed with back-to-back segs. The screeners ABC sent out at the start of season 4 and the bifurcated season 3 included at least two episodes, so that’s the source of my late-on-a-Friday-afternoon confusion.)
