    So now all that bullshit Rapture hoopla is far behind us, it's time to revel in a little schadenfreude. While we laugh at those on their hands and knees with a dustpan trying to sweep up the remains of their lives like a shattered vase after doling out their life savings over (DUN DUN!) Judgment Day, let us remember the ghosts of failed predictions past.

    The late-night wars may be on summer break until September's debut of The Conan O'Brien Show, but this morning's Emmy nominations announcement gave Conan a mini W. O'Brien's short-lived incarnation of The Tonight Show picked up a nod in the best variety, music or comedy category, while The Jay Leno Show (and Letterman's and Kimmel's) were left out.

    So what can you do when everybody else over by the water cooler is talking about Lost? You do what you have to do. First you use the wrench. Then the blowtorch. Then the knife. And, of course, that doesn't work because . . . because torture . . . doesn't work! But how else to get the information? His cell phone - the chip, the thing, the whatever you call it with all the information - the SIM card! Of course of course! A horse is a horse, you piece of shit!

    And so, the fifth and penultimate season of ABC's Lost concludes tonight, and with it will end one of the more bizarre, frustrating, and, strangely entertaining stretches in the show's history. And for this show, that's saying something.

    We interrupt our non-stop Inauguration coverage to inform you: there's a new season of Lost starting tonight. For some of you, that's all you need to hear. In fact, you've probably already read plenty about it. But for people who stopped watching the show before its superb fourth season, understand: you're missing out. Season Four spoilers - but NOT season five - are after the jump. We'll leave this space open for comments on tonight's episode, and we'll probably post about it later tonight or tomorrow morning.

    Lost's hotly-anticipated fifth season will debut in just over a month. Even though we're wondering how they could possibly top the fourth season, in which the show reinvented itself and refocused its storytelling approach, we aren't going to pretend not to be excited.

    ABC has released a few promos for the season, and we can spare your ears the trailer set to a new song by the Fray because there's a more substantive one out that shows a scene from the season's premiere.
