Love that “Lost”!!

‘Lost,’ ‘Housewives’ Get Clip-Show Treatment
LOS ANGELES ( In an effort to re-introduce viewers to its two most talked-about shows — and to fill what normally would be a rerun slot for both — ABC is assembling clip-show specials for “Desperate Housewives” and “Lost.”
The primary goal of the specials seems to be enticing new viewers by reviewing the ever-deepening mysteries behind the two first-year hits. Press materials for both say they’ll bring viewers “up to speed” or “up to date” on what’s happened so far.
The network also says “Desperate Housewives: Sorting Out the Dirty Laundry” (Sunday, April 24) and “Lost: The Journey” (Wednesday, April 27), might offer up some fresh insight for fans of the show — although there won’t be much new material in either one. In “Lost’s” case particularly, the special will also help fill a four-week gap between new episodes (the next original episode is scheduled for May 4).
The “Housewives” special will look at each central character’s story to date and recap some of the central mysteries of the show, including why Mary Alice Young (Brenda Strong, who also narrates the special) killed herself and what Mike Delfino (James Denton) is really doing on Wisteria Lane. It will also offer a preview of the season finale, scheduled for May 22.
“Lost: The Journey” will focus on the back stories of the stranded plane-crash survivors, arranging their stories chronologically to give a glimpse into the events that led them onto the doomed flight. It will also explore the mysterious island that’s now their home.
Both specials will air in their respective show’s regular time period.
