'Mad Men' May End in 2012

by Gary Susman, posted Apr 19th 2010 12:45PM
'Mad Men' and 'Lost' have a lot in common. Both are critically acclaimed shows with small but fiercely devoted followings. Both feature square-jawed men and feisty dames, many of them with unresolved daddy issues, trying to understand life on a mysterious island characterized by brutal power struggles. Both shows center on thick plumes of smoke.

Now there's one more similarity: Both shows' creators decided about three seasons into their runs to end their series after six seasons. According to The Weekly Blend blog, 'Mad Men''s Matthew Weiner announced last week at the National Association of Broadcasters' convention in Las Vegas that he could not envision writing the show beyond a sixth season.

'Lost' - 'Everybody Loves Hugo' Recap

'Lost' - 'Everybody Loves Hugo'
(S06E12)
You can certainly tell that we've turned the corner on this final season of 'Lost.' Suddenly, the alpha-verse and beta-verse seem to be on a collision course with one another, and I'm very intentionally using that expression. With Desmond on the loose in both universes now, things have gotten a lot more interesting, even if I'm still not 100% clear what either of his motivations are.

As expected, the beta-verse Hurley is every bit the financial success with Mr. Cluck's that the alpha-verse Hurley could never quite manage. What was alpha-Hurley's deep-rooted desire, if I'm going to continue that theory, that the beta-verse fulfilled? He said many times that he didn't want the millions he won in the lottery, but I think it was his never-ending plague of bad luck that he really wanted to get rid of. Trying to shed his winnings was just a means to his desired end.

A Lost Television Moment

by Stephanie Earp, posted Feb 2nd 2010 10:17AM


In 2000, I decided to go back to school and finish my degree. In case you're wondering, I took classics and women's studies, and I'm sure you can tell it served me well. That summer I arrived on campus about three weeks before school started, and one Sunday I headed to the campus pub hoping to make some new friends.

It was August 23, 2000, just a little after 8 pm.

I made no friends that night. Instead I practically had to jump up and down in front of the bartender to get her attention away from the television. The bar was packed and utterly silent. Everyone was watching what I now know was the second-highest rated finale of the decade, that the people in bar were only a handful of approximately 51.7 million viewers watching the 'Survivor' season finale. And I knew I was completely and hopelessly out of it.

Lost's final season won't answer all of viewers' questions - TCA Report

by Joel Keller, posted Jan 12th 2010 10:01PM
Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse at the Lost panel at the Winter 2010 TCAsRight before the Conan "piss off, NBC" letter exploded all over the place, ABC had started their day at the TCAs with the critics' full attention. Why? Because the first panel of the day was the last time that the producers and crew of Lost would be in front of the critics answering questions about their confoundingly complicated show.

It almost felt like a collective valedictory speech, as the cast was given a chance to talk about their biggest memories from six years of shooting the show in Hawaii, and EPs Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof waxed poetic over what they think the legacy of the show is going to be.

But the big takeaways? The final season is not going to answer every question surrounding the show. The story arc this year will be told in a way that might not actually confuse anyone who's decided to finally jump on board and watch. And Lindelof's reaction to the possibility that the premiere might be pre-empted by the State of the Union address was priceless.

Harold Perrineau and Cynthia Watros to appear in Lost's last season - TCA Report

by Joel Keller, posted Jan 12th 2010 1:01PM
Lost: The Final SeasonDuring the fun session for Lost this morning, executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse announced that two favorite cast members will be seen on the show's last season. And since they announced this in front of a room full of 200 reporters, it's safe to talk about it here:

Cynthia Watros, who played Libby, and Harold Perrineau, who played Michael, will both be appearing on the show this season. How and why they will appear, of course, is a secret. Cuse and Lindelof even joked about it, with Cuse going "All your Libby questions will be answered," and Lindelof countering, "No, they won't."

More on the lively panel later.

Lindelof and Cuse display Lost ending at Comic-Con... at least on paper

by Neil Gladstone, posted Jul 26th 2009 5:01PM
Lindelof and CuseSince the creators of Lost, Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, are always being accused of making the show up as they go along, they decided it was time to prove they had the last page of the show written.

So at this year's Lost Comic-Con panel, which will be the show's last, Damon and Carlton pulled out the final scene to get that chip off of their shoulders: Two pieces of paper they taunted the audience to steal. Although it won't be easy for anyone to get their hands on those pages.

You'll have to watch the panel video to see why, after the jump.

Lost & Found - the Lost spin-off of our dreams

by Eliot Glazer, posted Feb 2nd 2009 11:02AM
lost rose bernardCall us crazy, but wouldn't it be rad if Lindelof and Cuse, the bigwigs behind Lost, had a little fun in light of the superspeed at which we're plowing through the final two seasons of the show? Specifically, would it not be absolutely amazing if one of the characters from Lost left the island for greener pastures, and those greener pastures were a sitcom?

Picture it: Rose Henderson (L. Scott Caldwell) (disclaimer: my favorite character on the show) has escaped the island with her hubby, Bernard (and, because it's a sitcom, she's completely healthy). The lovebirds have returned to The Bronx, where Bernard (Sam Anderson) has resumed his dental career while Rose has taken a job as a safety specialist at Kennedy Airport (*wink wink*).

Are you ready to get 'Lost' again?

Though the fifth and penultimate season of the hit show doesn't premiere until Jan. 21, fans can refresh their memories (and obsess over those hidden Easter eggs) with the Season 4 DVD, which hits shelves today.

AOL TV participated in an online roundtable chat with executive producers Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof about how the writers' strike changed the fourth season, the fate of a certain character, a big-screen version of 'Lost' and the series' rapidly-approaching end.

Lost - Comic-Con Report

lost panel
As I awaited the Lost panel to start in Hall H Saturday morning, I felt bad for the multitudes of people who were still standing in line outside the convention center, behind the convention center and all the way down the road behind the Marriott hotel. If you were a fan of Lost, but not of Heroes, you simply had to sit in line and then sit through the Heroes panel in order to see Lost; there was no way around it.

The Lost panel was quite a change from Heroes, as rather than the entire cast appearing on stage, only Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse made up the panel. Later, though, a "surprise guest" came out: Matthew Fox. However, nearly everything discussed came from Lindelof and Cuse.

ABC show-runner panel: Heigl, Lost's endpoint, and musical theater - TCA Report

ABC show runner panel
I wanted to wait a bit before I posted about the ABC showrunner panel, because a) I already posted about the "news" from Shonda Rhimes about Katherine Heigl's statements, and b) I wanted to think about why these panels seem to be so much more informative than the individual show panels?

We'll get to that more later. On the panel were Rhimes (Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice), Marc Cherry (Desperate Housewives), Silvio Horta (Ugly Betty), Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse (Lost), and Greg Berlanti (seemingly the rest of ABC's schedule). As you'd expect, Rhimes got the Heigl questions, Lindelof and Cuse got the most esoteric questions, and Chery made the most jokes. The funniest line, though, came from Horta.

Producers comment on Lost theories

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Apr 24th 2008 5:23PM
LostSince Lost premiered about 4 years ago, fans have been active in coming up with theories (include the now-famous time loop theory) to explain the mysteries of the show. From the start, producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse have debunked a few of the most popular theories (e.g., they are in purgatory) and hinted that others may be legit.

To help fans discuss theories and propose their own, USA Today's website devotes a section to fans' Lost theories. With these theories in hand, USA Today turned to Darlton (that's the common nickname for Damon and Carlton) to see if any could be accurate.

Evangeline Lilly and Ken LeungEarlier today, Lost executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse held a teleconference with reporters and bloggers in anticipation of the show's return. They revealed, or at least hinted at, what we can expect in the season's final five episodes, elements of the season finale, and what they hope accomplish in upcoming seasons. Here's a recap:

  • The title of the season finale is "There's No Place Like Home."
  • When Lost returns, the show will follow Grey's Anatomy. Lindelof and Cuse aren't sure that the two dramas share an audience, but they are happy to share Thursdays with another successful show.
