As a follow-up to yesterday's post, here are a few teasers about tonight's "Lost," (ABC, 9 p.m.) which I saw Monday. Don't worry, nothing will be given away, but hopefully, this will whet your appetite just a bit:
--Tonight's episode splits its focus between Desmond and the people on the island. No sign of any of the Oceanic Six.

--We find out what Desmond's been up to over the past three years since leaving the island. We also learn that Desmond has a wee bit of a sentimental side.
--We learn some important tidbits about the Others, courtesy of Juliet.
--The episode is entitled "Jughead." This is not a clever Sawyer nickname; what it does mean could have a major impact on the island.
--We get some major background details on at least two characters.
--We find out a bit about the soldiers on the island from last week.
OK, curiosity piqued? Good. Unfortunately, "Lost" is one of those shows that you can't really talk about at all as a critic, because there's so little you can discuss in terms of plot points that wouldn't spoil things for people.
It doesn't mean, however, that I can't have a little fun, either. :-)
WEDNESDAY'S BEST BETS: "Life On Mars," or at least the inferior US version, returns tonight (ABC, 10 p.m.), settling into its new timeslot after "Lost."
"Lie To Me" (Fox, 9 p.m.) squares off against "Lost" in the 9 p.m. timeslot, though the latter last week drew some of its best ratings in a couple of years. But with "American Idol" (Fox, 8 p.m.) as a lead-in, "Lie To Me" has a chance to stick.
Meanwhile, "Knight Rider" (NBC, 8 p.m.) is still sticking around for reasons passing understanding. There's a new "Law & Order" on at 10 p.m.
CBS is taking a page out of the NBC playbook and giving us primetime Katie Couric at 8 p.m., also for reasons passing understanding. On the bright side, it means we won't be subjected to that Jay Mohr sitcom for a while. It's followed by a new "CSI: NY" at 10 p.m. after a few reruns.
PBS continues the documentary "Make 'Em Laugh" at 9 p.m. and 10 p.m.
Finally, on cable, there's a new "Damages" (FX, 10 p.m.)
