This Just In: Lost and Chuck Get Premiere Dates

Lost, Season 6, Poster ABC

Lost: According to ABC, Lost season six will premiere Feb. 2 at 9 p.m., which means Tuesday is now Lost day. ABC also confirms that Nestor Carbonell's Richard Alpert, Ken Leung's Miles, Jeff Fahey's Frank Lapidus and Zuleikha Robinson's Ilana have all been upped to series regular status (we hear that Ilana has close personal ties to the Island); Emilie De Ravin is back full-time as Claire; and that Henry Ian Cusick's Desmond is not a season-six regular, although he'll no doubt appear as a heavily featured recurring character. In other Lost news, a little birdie tells us exclusively that the Lost season five DVD/Blu-ray packaging has hieroglyphics hidden within the cover art that offer additional clues to the nature of season six. (The hieroglyphics are not included in the promo artwork released so far.) The DVDs are due out Dec. 8, so make sure your local Egyptologist is on call that day!

Want to know about more good TV airing this winter? Read on for info on Chuck's return date and a surprise NBC pickup:

Chuck: To quote Time magazine TV critic James Poniewozik on Twitter, "Premiere dates for both Chuck (1/10) and Lost (2/2) in one day? ARE YOU PEOPLE TRYING TO KILL THE INTERNET???" Yep, according to NBC, Chuck returns Sunday, Jan. 10, and then moves over to a regular Monday at 8 p.m. time slot the next day, Jan. 11. Whoo-hoo! (P.S. In other NBC news today, the network confirms to us that they are ordering three more episodes of Trauma.)

Grey's Anatomy: Seattle Grace gets into the webisode business tonight with the launch of the Grey's Anatomy series On Call, running on through Jan. 21. Set at Joe's bar, the six-installment series will focus on the undercurrent of intern drama we've seen over the past couple of years. Other featured characters include Steve Bailey as good ol' Joe the bartender and Nora Zehetner as Dr. Reed Adamson.


Does Tuesday as Lost day work for you guys? And will you watch On Call to see what's up with the preggo intern on Grey's?
