It’s the two-hour season finale tonight of Lost, with a special retrospective beforehand. That makes three straight hours for Lost fans. You’ll have to get the DVRs running, though, as smack dab in the middle of all that is the American Idol results show where we find out who the final two will be. I won’t be surprised no matter how this one turns out. And if you’re still looking for something to watch, you also have the America’s Next Top Model finale. Still looking for more?
