LOST’s Final Season Broken into Two Parts; Olympics Continue to Ruin Everything

Fuck the spirit of competition.  Fuck the world coming together.  Fuck who in the world thinks they’re best at curling.  Fuck all of this because the 2010 Winter Games have broken LOST’s final season into two parts.  The show will resume in January and then have to take a brief hiatus for the goddamn Olympics.

We all know that “Lost” works better uninterrupted.  That’s why they moved it to January in the first place: so it could run straight through until May.  Yes, we had to put up with the occasional clip show but that wasn’t the fault of the Olympics.  Yes, the Olympics where we all gather to chant “USA” and then forget all but the most major of accomplishments.  Unless Jamaica is fielding a bobsled team, I want to see this last season without interruptions.  I hope the Olympics get destroyed by the smoke monster.  Hit the jump to read Co-Executive Producer break the bad news:

Speaking with Arts at Harvard [via IGN] this is Cuse making “Lost” fans wish they could travel back in time and stop the Olympics from ever happening:

At the Office for the Arts we had a surprise visitor yesterday from Carlton Cuse ‘81. Mr. Cuse is the Producer and Writer of the TV show “Lost” on ABC. The office was quite busy since it is Parents Weekend, so I wasted not a minute. I ran up to him hoping to ask politely about ‘Lost’ but what came out was:

“WHEN IS LOST GOING TO START AGAIN!!!? I CAN’T WAIT. MY FAMILY CAN’T WAIT. MY CATS CAN’T…” and then I went on without breathing for 2 more minutes.

Mr. Cuse graciously explained that the show would begin again in January then stop for the Olympics and then start back again in February.

Curling isn’t even a real thing.  It’s shuffleboard on ice.  Fuck.

    Why don’t they just wait until the Olympics are over and then air them uninterrupted? Is that just too simple of an idea?

    What about pre-empting the olympics for that one hour or scheduling events that no one cares about for that time slot. I think ice dancing would be the perfect event for a prime time spot.

    why do they care about ratings anymore. this is the last season. the fans that have been watching all along will not choose the olympics over Lost.

    There’s something really broken in anyone who chooses the Olympics over LOST. Even if you take some kind of pleasure in the Olympics, which is almost unimaginable, but let’s assume for a second that you did…LOST is one hour a week. You can miss an hour of the Olympics for the last great network drama.

    I’m not a LOST die-hard. I have no problem waiting between episodes each week or even between seasons every year. But a) boy are the Olympics annoying, and b) I’ll gladly wait between episodes for a good reason; this is a bad reason.
