In what's being billed as the sweeps showdown to end all sweeps showdowns by, well, me, ABC has scheduled the two-hour season finale of Lost directly opposite the two-hour season finale of Fox's American Idol on Wednesday, May 25. The Lost climax, originally slated to be 90 minutes long, was expanded to two hours for creative reasons, Variety reports. OK, everyone just relax. Here's what you do: The moment Lost ends at 10:02 pm, hit "List" on your "fauxVo" DVR, scroll down to American Idol, push "Select" and fast-forward to the very end when Ryan Seacrest proclaims Bo Bice the winner. Any questions?
