Lost’s ratings slide on Sky One

According to Broadcast (subscription required), Lost‘s ratings on Sky One have dropped to just 863,000. Given Sky paid £975,000 for each episode, they’re probably beginning to regret their decision.

Incidentally, did any Lost fans pay for Sky just so they could watch the show? Informal chats have ascertained that no one I know stumped up the cash necessary, but how about the rest of the UK?
