Alias to return in January

ABC has announced that the fourth season of J.J. Abrams' award-winning spy drama Alias will return on Wednesday, January 5, with a two-hour season premiere. The following week, the series will settle into the 9pm hour, following Abrams' new series Lost. New episodes of Alias will air each week, without any repeats, through the end of the season.

"When we made the strategic decision this fall on Alias, we only hoped to be in the situation we find ourselves in today, said ABC president of entertainment Stephen McPherson. "Lost provides a terrific platform for Alias' new season. Not only do both shows have similar audience profiles with great appeal to television's most coveted young adult viewers, but they also share J.J.'s unique sensibility. This is a great two-hour block of programming."

Lost has been a decent show so far this season, but Alias is one of our favorites.
