NYC’s Weekly Top Ten in TV: Lost Finale Finishes Third

Top 10 shows in New York, May 17 to May 23, according to Nielsen Data (total viewers, time shifting/DVR not included)

On Sunday night, ABC finally got us off the island, bringing Lost to an end after six suspenseful, and, at times, maddening seasons.

In the end, the finale was unable to either (a) explain the meta-physical meaning of life or (b) knock off American Idol.

It finished third for the week in New York.

Walt!
