Crisis averted: "Lost" won't be pre-empted
From the Associated Press:
White House spokesman Robert Gibbs says he doesn't foresee a scenario in which President Barack Obama's State of the Union address will fall on Feb. 2, the same night "Lost's" final season debuts.
The State of the Union is traditionally held at the end of January, but there have been rumors that the White House could move the speech to early February in hopes of having a health care bill in hand.
Gibbs says a date for the address will be announced soon.
Also: On his Twitter account, "Lost" co-creator Damon Lindelof claimed victory, tweeting, "Okay. So Obama didn't technically 'back down.' He leveraged Carlton and I to do something on the show. Two words. MORE FROGURT."
