New ‘Lost’ season premieres Jan. 21

Fifth season moving to Wednesdays at 9

ABC is back in the “Lost” biz as of 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 when “Lost” returns, ABC said Friday.

ABC is expected to make more Wednesday sked changes 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 two back-to-back segs 9-11 p.m., preceded at 8 p.m. by a clip recap show.
