Newsweek Staff Members Who've Never Seen 'Lost' Watch and Comment

The other night while watching the season premiere of 'Lost,' I was thinking about people who have never seen the show. What if they watched this episode? Would they have any idea of what's going on? Would they like it? Would their heads explode?

This video below answers the question a bit. Several Newsweek staff members got together to watch scenes from important moments on the show and tried to figure out what it all means. Some of the comments range from goofy ("Why would that guy make the engine blow up?") to the typical line you hear from a non-fan ("It's heaven!").

FOX announces Idol sponsors like it's the Super Bowl or something

Coca-Cola Polar BearI get that American Idol is the biggest thing on television besides the Super Bowl, but do people really get that excited about who's going to sponsor the show? Apparently someone does because FOX sent out a press release today, with great fanfare and a ticker-tape parade with Ryan Seacrest as Grand Marshall decked out in a blue and white sequined tux complete with top hat and a monkey on his shoulder, that Ford, Coca-Cola and AT&T would be the official sponsors of Idol this year.

What does this mean for you, the viewer? It means more retarded Ford commercials. It means more awkward Coca-Cola "moments" where Ryan asks a contestant a random, generic question and gets a confused and empty answer. And it means Ryan will get to say the words AT&T twelve times per contestant as he gives out their phone and text numbers.

LostHa! A funny web site helps the die-hard Lost fan figure out if that week's episode is a repeat (lately, the answer has been yes), or no.

And I mean that's exactly what you get on the web site. If Lost is a repeat a particular week, all you'll see on the whole web page is a "NO!" If it's a new episode, it's just a "YES!"

I love a web site that gets right down to it.
