Lost, Matthew Fox

ABC/Mario Perez

Could Lost really be moving to 10 p.m. on Wednesdays? That's the word from sources close to ABC, who tell me the network is considering a new Wednesday-night lineup, which will be launched—in part—Jan. 3.

Word is, ABC intends to premiere The Knights of Prosperity (the return of Donal Logue, baby!) and In Case of Emergency at 9 and 9:30, respectively, on that first Wednesday of the new year. Two weeks later, Fox brings back American Idol, and Idol has been known to swamp the Lost island in the ratings. So, according to insiders, ABC is planning to move Lost to 10 p.m. in order pimp out the new comedies and protect our Losties from the big, bad monster of Simon Cowell.

I, for one, am worried about Medium, which could very well become Small if it's up against both CSI: NY and Lost. CSI: NY, meanwhile, is pretty formidable in its own right—it regularly pulls in Lostzilla-size numbers.

But what do you all think? Can you stay up that late? Could this give the producers more freedom to go even darker? This is the audience-participation portion of the blog, and I'm dying to hear your thoughts. So, comment away below!
