White House will not preempt "Lost" season premiere
President Barack Obama’s star power was no match for the force of the ABC television show “Lost.”
Fanatics of the show were in a panic all month long since learning the president was considering Feb. 2 as a possible date for the State of the Union Address.
Fans even organized Twitter and message boards campaign to build support in an effort to persuade the White House not to schedule the address during the Feb. 2 season premiere of “Lost.”
During a briefing earlier this month with the press corps, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs was asked whether the president was aware of the Internet storm regarding fans begging him not to schedule the State of the Union address during “Lost.”
“I don’t foresee a scenario in which the millions of people that hope to finally get some conclusion in “Lost” are pre-empted by the president,” Gibbs said during a press conference.
“Lost” fans have been impatiently waiting to watch the two-hour season premiere Feb. 2. Fans will finally get to see what happened after Juliet detonated a hydrogen bomb. They want to know if Juliet is dead or alive, and not even the president can prevent that from happening.
Apparently, their crybaby campaign worked. The State of the Union Address will be at 8 p.m. Wednesday (Jan. 27, central time).
