‘Lost’ survives in TV’s primetime jungle

(Posted July 27, 2005 by Leah Yoakum)

LOS ANGELES - If Emmy history is any guide, the ABC series “Lost” would stray as far off the radar of the industry’s pre-eminent television awards as its marooned cast of air-crash survivors.

But somehow a genre-bending program that incorporates elements of science fiction is leading the pack this year in the drama categories — traditionally the bailiwick of episodic-friendly detectives, doctors or dysfunctional families.

Perhaps “Lost” is an appropriate front-runner in what has been a surreal year for ABC, which has seen its haul of nominations surge along with its ratings, as has Fox and CBS. Given the concomitant decreases registered by HBO and NBC, this year’s Emmy nominations could very well reflect the shifting fortunes roiling the television industry.
