Although Fox held an enormous advantage from �Idol� coming into the time period (Fox = 31.0 million & 12.5/30 from 8:30-9:00 p.m.), ABC�s �Lost� surged from its lead-in and gained audience throughout its telecast to dominate its closest regular competition during the 9 o�clock hour, Fox�s �Bones.� ABC�s �Lost� defeated Fox�s �Bones� by 6.1 million viewers (18.8 million vs. 12.7 million) and by 55% in Adults 18-49 (7.6/17 vs. 4.9/11).
