The network had planned to make the announcement at Comic-Con International, but McPherson, at a meeting of the Television Critics Association, was pressed for some information. McPherson initially stated: "I've cast Don Imus on `Lost,'" and the joke was not taken well. ABC says the show will run for three more seasons, concluding in 2009-10, returning for its fourth season in January.
