Ratings: Thursday (1/31/08) "LOST" Ratings!
"LOST" ratings are in! Check them out and see how the new ABC drama "Eli Stone" and a 2-hour "Celebrity Apprentice" did, after the jump. Plus, did "LOST" hurt "Supernatural"?
The fourth-season premiere of ABC’s "LOST" delivered the best numbers in more than a year for the hit mystery drama last night, scoring 16.07 million viewers and lifting the network to an easy first-place finish on the first night of sweeps.
"LOST" also averaged a very strong 6.7 rating among adults 18-49, its best since its November 2006 fall finale. "LOST" also made a 2-hour "Celebrity Apprentice" hit season low and it gave "Eli Stone" a strong push helping it win its timeslot.
Overall, "LOST" helped ABC win the first night of sweeps, a rare treat - it happened for the second time since 1991. The third season finale of "LOST" in May 2007 pulled in a much weaker 13.65 million viewers.
