E! Online is reporting (eonline.com) that 6 weeks after the 3rd season premiere on October 4th , Lost will go on a winter hiatus for 13 weeks.

Man, this really sucks hardcore. I hate it when the networks pull these shenanigans.

Yeah, but no repeats, baby....eighteen episodes (or however many) uninterrupted after the hiatus. A zillion times better than last season.

I don't think this is new news, though.

I would rather they do it this way, then the seemingly random way repeats would pop up for a week or two in between new episodes.

This is a vast improvement over last year, but part of me still wishes they had just blatantly copied 24 and not started the season until January. I could've waited the extra three months if it meant I would've gotten my beloved Lost uninterrupted for four months

Seriously, Mayhem, quit complaining, this is a good plan. You still get Lost in the fall with no repeats for 6 weeks. There'll be a big honking cliffhanger that will rock your socks off and leave you salivatin' for February. And then when they do come back, 16 more weeks straight with no repeats. Sounds pretty good to me.

I'm glad YOU can wait but ABC, the people footing the bills, see things differently. They don't want to be without Lost during November sweeps. This way, they get Lost on the air during every sweeps period with major episodes in November (cliffhanger), the return episode (February) and the finale (May).

Again: NO RERUNS. Good planning, ABC.

According to zap2it (zap2it.com), the specific reason that they scheduled Lost as they did was to help launch The Nine in the Invasion/Evidence timeslot.

That's your opinion ... I was just stating facts & then how I felt about them. I prefer having repeats here & there to possibly catch an episode that my DVR screwed up (which happened last season).
