"Lost" (10:00-11:00 p.m.)

Jumping from its lead-in by 8.2 million viewers (12.1 million vs. 3.9 million) and by 183% in young adults (5.1/13 vs. 1.8/4), "Lost" dominated the 10 o'clock hour, beating season finales on CBS ("C.S.I.: NY") and NBC ("Medium") across the key adult demographics. In the time slot, ABC's "Lost" outdelivered second-place CBS, with the season closer of "C.S.I.: NY," by 68% in Adults 18-34 (4.2/12 vs. 2.5/7), by 31% in Adults 18-49 (5.1/13 vs. 3.9/10) and by 17% in Adults 25-54 (5.6/14 vs. 4.8/11).

� "Lost" was up week to week among Adults 18-49 (5.1/13 vs. 5.0/13) and across each of the key men demographics: M18-34 (3.8/12 vs. 3.4/11), M18-49 (4.5/12 vs. 4.1/12) and M25-54 (5.0/13 vs. 4.9/13).

� The ABC drama has topped Wednesday's 10 o'clock hour in the key Adult 18-49 sales demographic on all 15 telecasts since entering its new time slot.
