BACK IN BLACK

Buoyed by breakout hits Desperate Housewives and Lost (I can't believe they almost killed Charlie!), long-struggling ABC is expected to return to profitability in 2005. At a press conference Wednesday, Walt Disney president Bob Iger called the network's recent turnaround "a watermark," adding that he believes the "success is real, not flash-in-the-pan." Speaking of Lost, last night's cardiac arrest-inducing episode attracted 19 million viewers — the serial thriller's largest audience to date. That said, I can't believe we almost Lost Charlie! Damn you, J.J. Abrams!
