ABC has announced some interesting scheduling changes for midseason.
We learned yesterday that Lost will be returning on Wednesday, January 21st, 2009, but it was unclear which timeslot on Wednesdays would become its regular home.
Now it's been announced that Lost is airing on Wednesdays at 9PM, which means that the current show in that slot, Private Practice is out of a home. So...where's it moving to? Thursdays at 10PM, following Grey's Anatomy. The network wants to pair up the two shows and see if magic occurs. I'd venture to say that most people who watch Private Practice also watch Grey's (after all, Practice is a Grey's spinoff)...so it just might work.
ABC is labeling this as a trial in scheduling for now, but by golly, I think it just may work!
