IGN was at the TCA (Television Critics Association) winter press tour and gave a report on the status of several ABC series during Q&A session with Stephen McPherson, the President of the network.

McPherson touched upon the series Lost:

Asked about the decision this season to air six episodes of Lost in the fall, and the remainder in the spring, McPherson said he felt ideally he would like to air the entire next season of Lost all together, with no breaks, in the manner 24 does, and that there is a "good chance" this will be the case for the fourth season. McPherson added that it's still not decided if Lost would return in the fall or spring, if they do decide to make that change.
