The big story of the night is the season finale of "Lost". The problem for "Lost"-haters, and they do exist, is that there are very few other options this evening. Programming on ABC is dominated by 3 hours of "Lost" and the other majors are throwing just program repeats or reality contests at it.

It wasn't long ago that TiVo was decried for potentially fatal mistakes but now that they've cut costs and enforced a couple of contested patents they may have secured an income stream to protect/expand a market share against DVRs offered by the cable and satellite companies.
