Is Five Hours of a Lost Goodbye Too Much?

... ABC will say goodbye to Lost with FIVE HOURS OF PROGRAMMING OMG! In addition to the two-hour finale, there will be a pre-finale two-hour recap show and a one-hour post-finale special hosted by Jimmy Kimmel and featuring cast members and producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse. Five hours!? That's like two Avatars! [The Wrap]

... Comedy Central has renewed Web funnies Tosh.0 for a third season, so it's not time to throw away that kitten and camcorder just yet. [Comedy Central]

... TLC's pact with the Devil continues. The channel--which is about... well, I don't know what TLC is about anymore actually--is rolling out a new Kate Gosselin show called Twist of Kate (ha ha! good one!). In the program, Kate will help mentor troubled women. Kate's advice: have an indestructible vagina and no sense of shame. [USA Today]

... In Soviet Russia, Mother meets you! Russian network CTC is working on a deal to localize How I Met Your Mother for its territory. This comes after a pact to remake Prison Break for its audiences. In the latter, the Russian versions of Lincoln and Michael will attempt to break out of prison in Season One and spend the rest of the series trying to break back in, where it's safer and they get three squares a day. Cold War jokes never get old. [Variety]

... The success of Jersey Shore is spawning more racist reality shows. We've already seen casting calls for Asian-Americans and Chicago southsiders, and can add Persian-Americans to the list. Cologne stocks went through the roof on the announcement. [Associated Press]

... My girlfriend Lizzy Caplan (shhh, she doesn't know we're together yet. It's a surprise!) has landed a role on CBS' upcoming comedy pilot True Love, joining Jason Biggs, Minka Kelly, and Tyler Labine. Minka Kelly and Lizzy Caplan in the same show? My pants just exploded. [THR]

Gonna skip the recap, but I am going to watch the special. Either so I can glare at the producers from through my TV screen because the finale sucked, or to get quotes so I can finally start that Lost religion I've been thinking about that just praises the awesomeness of Lost

I never watched Lost so I won't be watching the recap. But I have watched the entire mini-series 10th Kingdom in one sitting, and that's over 6 hours long. So it's quite possible. Most will probably skip the 2 hour recap though.

All we mere mortals can do is PRAY that people don't watch this new Kate show, and that the ratings are SO abysmal that even TLC will see it's not worth their time. Can't TLC find any other way to pimp this poor woman out?

And there is no such thing as too much Lost.....although I probably won't watch the recap shows. They annoy me.

I wish I could watch 5 hours of "Lost" in the final day but sadly, not in my country. Hopefully I could watch at 2 a.m. the finale not having to wait a week for it.

to me that's to much but I am not fan of the show. I guess the fans out there may not be bothered.

LOST and only LOST !! five hours isn't too much, it's not enough for me.... I'd like a 2 days episode to be satisfied with the fact that LOST came to its end !!

5 hours of Lost is definitely not too much. I was watching 10 episodes a day back when I was DVDing the first 2 seasons trying to get caught up. I miss having 5 hours of lost to watch, so I can't wait. ...Except, then it will be over forever :(

What is TLC thinking giving that woman another show. Especially one where she's supposed to be mentoring other troubled women. This woman is too messed up herself. How is she supposed to be a role model when she can't even prioritize her own children and is too concerned about herself, her horrid hair, and her "career." Don't encourage insanity TLC, you'll hurt more people than you "help."
