-At least one “Lost” star captured a win at the Emmy’s, so again, congrats to Terry O’Quinn. Otherwise, Lost and Heroes were collectively shut out, and beyond that it was generally a Sopranos love fest, so if you missed it, you didn’t miss much.
-TV Guides’ Michael Ausiello confirmed today that Cynthia Watros (Libby) will be appearing in Season 4, so I definitely look forward to getting more of her story and what happened as she and Hurley crossed paths in the mental institution. There has been additional speculation that she might have been a DHARMA employee, so I’m sure her back story will be compelling. At a minimum, this essentially confirms that flash-backs will still be part of the show for Season 4:
She’ll be in enough of the show for us to fill in the missing pieces of her story,” says Cuse. “We could not be more pleased. Cynthia is a smart and engaging actor, and [executive producer] Damon [Lindelof] and I have some very cool parts of her story left to tell.”
-Numerous sites are speculating that the premiere of Lost will be Monday, February 4th, at 8 PM. Though this has not been confirmed, obviously the 8 PM Monday night timeslot should draw much larger non-DVR viewership than Wednesday at 10, which is great for the show
-Finally, at some point today an all new podcast should appear on ABC.com, from Lindelof and Cuse, we will provide a recap once that is published.
