"Lost" returns from its writers-strike-induced hiatus tonight (10 p.m. EDT on ABC) and the word on the streets is that things are about to get pretty scary on the island, thanks to those tough-looking tattooed fellows on the freighter who very much enjoy firing their automatic weapons into the air. Yes, mysterious clouds and polar bears have now been replaced by a derelict gang of assassins and ne'er-do-wells lifted straight from your local Satan-worshiping biker bar. Ben is at the center of it all, naturally, but what will we discover about him? That he's eeeeevil, as we've always suspected? Let's hope by the end of these last four episodes of the season, we'll at least know the answer to that one.


Tonight's "Survivor: Micronesia -- Fans vs. Favorites" (8 p.m. EDT on CBS) supposedly features the "biggest blunder in 'Survivor' history," but we'll see about that one! Meanwhile, "Ugly Betty" returns to ABC (also at 8 p.m.) and Jack grooms Liz for executive status on "30 Rock" (8:30 p.m. on NBC). Then, "Grey's Anatomy" (9 p.m. on ABC) finally returns with a new lady psychiatrist joining the hospital staff.
