Networks have been trying to nail down the "next Lost" since, well, Lost was on the air. It's never seemed to work…until now? NBC's Manifest, a drama about a plane full of people who go missing for more than five years, but for them they just experienced bad turbulence, debuted to big numbers. The series premiere, without delayed viewing factored in, had 10.4 million viewers and a 2.2 rating. Subsequent episodes have slipped, which is normal, but are still solid for today's broadcast standards. The ratings aren't the only highlight: Manifest is actually good, with a solid story and mystery driving interest. NBC handed out an order of three additional scripts, bringing the season one total to 16.
