Poll: LOST Viewers
« on: August 16, 2007, 08:48:42 AM »
According to Wikipedia, LOST's second season had fewer viewers than the first, and the third season had fewer viewers than the second (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lost_(TV_series)#Ratings). And season three itself showed a general decline (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lost_%28season_3%29#Ratings).

So, do you think LOST will continue to decline into the fourth season, or will it rebound?

That's a har d question to answer. Generally a TV show will lose following over the years. It's inevitable. However, the Season 3 Finale was HUGE. Lots of people watched the S3 finale, probably to the point where there are dozens if not hundreds of new or reinstated viewers. The reason they lost people in S2 was because it became a bit boring, and it seemed like some of the episodes were just filler. The loss in S3 came almost entirely from the horrible first half of S3, which I would overall rate a 6 out of ten. Not any better than any other show around. However, I think that the Season Finale revamped some of the folowers and we will show an increase in viewers.

I say decline.  I don't see it going up in any huge numbers.  This is a show you need to watch beginning to end and many new viewers aren't willing to make that commitment.

I said "decline" as well. But I think this will happen with all network shows, at least as measured by how many watch them when they're first aired. More and more people are watching online, or on some other delayed basis like TIVO, or even waiting for the DVD's.

I agree with Ashley. All shows have some decline over the years and Lost is not an exception. Worst, Lost is a show you HAVE to keep up with! if u loose an epi, you KNOW your gonna loose info!
And i agree with LAS too. Since Lost is such a "complicated" show, many ppl rather watch  on tivo to make sure they don't loose epis at all. Or buy the DVD..

I personaly watch it online (it doesn't air in Portugal till march, and i can't wait 6 months to watch teh epis :D)

I agree totally here... i know people that say they dont liek it because theyve only "caught an episode here and there" and right away i know thats why they dont like it. you have to see every season in order every episode to really enjoy it. the number of new viewrs will sure keep declineing the further you get into the series anyway.

But i know no matter what they will never lose this viewer.

That won't stop BR! Right, BR? BR?

Actually they seem to be doing that. The only hot man killed off lately, I think, was Eko. Maybe Paulo counts. I love Charlie, but don't think of him as hot. Meanwhile we've lost Libby, Ana Lucia, Naomi, Colleen, Nikki, any others? All in the last season and a half.

BadRobot you are now officially in my black list!!!!
Paulo (that's how it's spelled btw) is a very very very HOT brazilian guy that yes, appeared as a very... womenlike-pierced-evil-god-king (Xerxes) in 300, but was also in Love actually, Charlies Angels and much more (probably unknown in he US).
if u keep it up, i'll have to dig my Rodrigo Santoro pics ans start posting them all over your threads!!!!! :D

so, be warned! DO NOT MAKE FUN OF MY DEAD HOT PAULO!!!!!


P.S.-i'm joking, i'm not mad at you but i will fill threads with hottie pics of him!!!!
