TVLine Items: 'Lost' Lost Scene Revealed, NCIS Nabs Lily Tomlin, Plus a Vampire Diaries Tease

Lost bosses Carlton Cuse (arriving in full Imperial Stormtrooper regalia) and Damon Lindelof served up quite a treat at Entertainment Weekly‘s “Totally Lost: One Year Later” San Diego Comic-Con event on Friday. After some to-and-fro over whether to let some “never seen” Lost footage see the light of day, the duo agreed to show the crowd an edit of the Season 1 finale that they didn’t use, for fear that it revealed too much about how the series would eventually end.

* Donny Osmond has been tapped to host Secret Fortune, a game show pilot for CBS, per The Hollywood Reporter. The concept sounds a little Deal or No Deal-like, though instead of suitcases the players puzzle over 24 envelopes containing wide-ranging sums of moolah.

    Those lost scenes from Lost seem like they’re from a parody. If they were truly part of the season 1 finale, it was good not to include them. They only would have made sense if the show had been cancelled in its first season, and really, I would have been mad that these were the clowns that called the shots.

    Boring! Just like the show! Stay tuned for Anger Management, coming at you whenever, wherever! WINNING!

    Can anybody PLEASE tell me how long NCIS going to last ’cause it always been TV’s #1 drama since CSI passed the torch to that Mark Harmon-led drama series. :(

    FINALLY!! Maybe a back story for McGee! Lily Tomlin is awesome, and I cannot wait to see her with the rest of the cast. Looking forward to the next season.

    “…for fear that it revealed too much about how the series would eventually end.” I know the clip’s just a joke, but haha. As if the writers even knew how the show would end that early. Seasons 1-4 of LOST were basically just the writers blindly coming up with random, interesting plots, twists and turns, and drama…no one knew it would end with everything rounded down to “just chalk on a wall in a cave…it didn’t mean anything.” Such a shame. LOST was a very good show, but the finale was too simple and lazy.
