Destiny Calls: The New "Lost" Season Five Promo

In exactly two months from today, we'll get to see just where (and, ahem, when) Ben moved the island to. But until then, those of us hungry for a new fix of ABC's Lost have had to wait quite some time.

Fortunately, ABC gave fans a brief sneak peek at Season Five of Lost with a new promo unveiled during tonight's Grey's Anatomy (and featuring "You Found Me," a new single from The Fray, from their forthcoming February 3rd album) that provides some new footage mixed with some familiar beats from the Oceanic Six's past.

Missed the promo? You can check it out after the jump.



Is that Desmond and Penny in bed together? Juliet and Sawyer holding hands? Hurley brandishing a gun and peering out of a door at some baddies? The castaways getting fired at with, well, fiery arrows by the hostiles? Charlotte staring down the barrel of some guns? Daniel Faraday being surprised by a yellow-suited Dharma worker from the Swan? You betcha to all of the above.

Just what does it mean? When and where are the castaways who survived the island moving? Well, just two months to go but my informed guess is that Ben moved the island back in time to the start of the Dharma Initiative arriving on the island and they're in the midst of dealing with some restless natives. I can't wait.

Lost returns on Wednesday, January 21st on ABC.

I cannot wait for the premiere!! Jack's looking very bad ass, Sawyer is great as ever and seeing Richard again just makes me giddy :)

This looks amazing! I forgot this was on last night and was kicking myself this am so thanks for posting. How does that compass get imbedded in Locke's hand and why does he look so weirded out by it? Were Hurley and Sayid fighting Jack? It was hard to tell. Could have done without the shots of the fray though.

In a word: AWESOME.

Hmm...Locke with that virgin mary statue makes me think that Charlie's story is going to be addressed further in season 5. I hope he makes another guest appearance. Also, that shot of Hurley looking at Sayid lying on the ground? Sayid totally looked dead!

@anonymous. Dead or just unconscious? I don't think the producers would let Sayid's death just slip into a musical montage promo like that. Good thinking with the virgin Mary statue though. That could definitely mean more Charlie stuff.

Fantastic promo (although I could have done without the music video portion). I am so excited for the return of Lost. It looks like it's going to be an incredible season!

I'd say the Virgin Mary statue, as well as the drug plane falling again, could mean we'll see more references to Eko as well as Charlie in S5.

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

Me Want Food: Jenna Gets Famously Fat on "30 Rock"

I don't know about you, but I've already ordered my "Me Want Food" t-shirt from the NBC store. Last night's episode of 30 Rock ("Jack Gets in the Game") was, in my opinion, one of the strongest of the series and has officially pushed the zany comedy into the realm of Arrested Development : deftly plotted and intricately layered, with so many jokes piled atop of jokes that it requires several viewings in order to catch them all. While at its heart, 30 Rock is a workplace comedy, it's left that narrow pigeonhole behind to become a witty example of how intelligent and taut humor can work (and flourish) on television... and exist in harmony with hilarious throwaways like the Thriller -inspired Werewolf Bar Mitzvah music video that would have done the AD crew proud. I want Will Arnett to appear on this series whenever possible. His gay exec Devin is hilarious, manipulative, and has an inexplicable weakness for Kenneth the Page, but he claims to have

"Gilmore" Guy: Who is New Showrunner David Rosenthal?

A few days later and I am still processing the news that Gilmore Girls showrunner Amy Sherman-Palladino--and her exceptionally talented husband, writer and producer Daniel Palladino-- announced their departure from the whip-smart drama after six seasons. The news wouldn't be such a blow, save for the fact that Gilmore Girls is as much about Amy and Daniel as it is about Lorelai and Rory. In their capable hands, the show explored a supremely complicated family dynamic through the beautiful friendship of mother and daughter Lorelai and Rory... and did so with smart dialogue usually found in a Nick & Nora film rather than on television. Zany subplots abounded as did quirky, beloved supporting characters. And now, after six seasons (including this most recent--and very shaky--season where Amy and Daniel wrote less episodes than usual), Amy and Daniel are passing on the showrunning torch to... Dave Rosenthal?!? For those of you in the audience unfamiliar with David Rosenthal ,
