American Idol Vs. Lost

Fox has decided to make a line up change and pit heavy hitter "American Idol" against "Lost" and it's dwindling viewership starting March 11th when the show moves into the finals.

Although the two shows usually have very different audiences, "Lost" definitely felt a hit last week when the singing competition ran a 2 hour show into the 9pm time slot.  Sadly, the ratings for "Lost" have dropped with every episode this season, leaving me to wonder how much longer it can last. 

New series "Lie to Me" will be bumped to the 8pm slot, leaving the show to fend for itself.  It's very likely the freshman drama will suffer a bit without an "Idol" lead in. 

This is the first time in years that "Lost" has had to compete with "Idol".  Do you think it can take the competition or is the beginning of the end?
