Fans of the ABC TV series Lost are afraid that President Obama will give his State of the Union address on Feb. 2. If the annual speech to Congress comes that night, it would pre-empt the show's premiere. There's even a Facebook group called "Americans Against the State of the Union on the Same Night as LOST."

STEVE INSKEEP, host:

If his annual speech to Congress came that night, it would preempt the premiere of a popular TV series. So there is a Facebook group called Americans Against the State of the Union on the Same Night as "Lost." The president's Afghanistan speech kept viewers in some markets from seeing a "Charlie Brown Christmas." You're listening to MORNING EDITION.
