'Lost' fans outraged over possible premiere preemption

NEW YORK (AP) -- Fans of the hit ABC show "Lost" are crying foul after finding the final season premiere could be preempted by President Obama's State of the Union address.

There's been word Obama may speak on the evening of February 2, the same day as the three-hour premiere of the series, about the saga of a group of plane crash survivors.

A Facebook group called "Americans Against the State of the Union on the Same Night as LOST" asks "When will it end?" after noting "A Charlie Brown Christmas" was bumped late last year for Obama's speech on Afghanistan.

Twitter comments Wednesday included "Leave my LOST alone, Skippy!" and "Come onnnn, Obama..pick another day."

The White House will not confirm when Obama is speaking. The State of the Union is typically delivered at the end of January but Washington insiders speculate Obama may delay, to give Congressional Democrats more time to work on health care legislation.

An ABC spokesman would not say whether the network would discuss moving the premiere.
