Lost Rules Wednesday


The Hollywood Reporter says Wednesday's second season premiere of ABC's Lost dominated all ratings:

Lost opened its second season with a stellar 23.1 million viewers and 10 rating/24 share in the adults 18-49 demographic, according to preliminary estimates from Nielsen Media Research. That marked all-time high ratings for the series, even higher than its first-season finale, a two-hour cliffhanger that brought in 20.7 million viewers and 7.8/19 in May even as it faced off against the final round of competition on Fox's American Idol. But Lost proved it was going to be a major player for ABC right out of the box this time last year when it premiered to an impressive 18.7 million viewers and 6.8/20 in adults 18-49.

ABC's new Invasion also performed strongly.
