FlashForward, ABC's intriguing new drama, chronicles a frightening world event in which everyone loses consciousness simultaneously for two minutes and 17 seconds. During that time, each person experiences a "flash-forward" to the same date about six months into the show's future: April 29, 2010. Many critics (including us) are calling the show the next Lost.

ABC's new comedies have given the network something to smile about.
Modern Family and Cougar Town debuted to 12.7 million and 11.4 million viewers, respectively. Although CBS' Criminal Minds won the 9/8c timeslot in overall viewers (15.4 million), the ABC comedy combo was the most-watched in the key demographics. Following a Dancing with the Stars results show, which won the 8/7c hour with 15 million viewers, Modern Family improved ABC's rating in the demo by 23 percent.
Despite stiff premiere competition at 9/8c, Glee pulled 6.6 million viewers, a loss of only 5 percent week-to-week. NBC's Law & Order: SVU premiere was watched by 8.2 million viewers, but came up last in the demos.

Fox's So You Think You Can Dance was up slightly from a week ago with 5.6 million viewers and NBC's Mercy debuted to 8.2 million viewers.

During that time, each person experiences a "flash-forward" to the same date about six months into the show's future: April 29, 2010. FBI agent Mark Benford (Shakespeare in Love's Joseph Fiennes) leads the investigation into the phenomenon. "The opportunity to get off a horse, out of a flouncy shirt, into a guy that wears a gun on his hip and some cuffs on the back of his belt, I'll tell you, that's quite nice," the actor says. Let's answer some burning questions about the show that many critics (including us) are calling the next Lost.
