"Last year was tough for a lot of reasons... There were a few missteps in that the cast got a little big and there were a few too many people for the audience to care about."

JAMES DENTON on why DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES lost viewers last season.
Man, I wish someone from Lost had the guts to say that. It wasn't even as true for DH as it was for Lost! Sure, the Applewhites were boring and pointless but c'mon, Lee Tergesen's guest shot? Awesome! DH still has a smaller cast of principals than Lost and did a much better job of juggling plotlines, if you ask me. It's not like 6 entire episodes were devoted to the Applewhites, the way Lost did with the Tailies.
