NEW YORK — These fans would truly be lost without their favorite TV show — and they’re taking their case to the top.

Fans of the ABC series about marooned plane crash survivors fear President Barack Obama will give his State of the Union address Feb. 2.

That’s the same day as the three-hour premiere of the final season of “Lost.”

Twitter comments Wednesday included “Leave my LOST alone, Skippy!” and “Come onnnn, Obama..pick another day.”

The Facebook group “Americans Against the State of the Union on the Same Night as LOST” asks “When will it end?” It notes that Obama already bumped “A Charlie Brown Christmas” for his Afghanistan speech in some markets.

The White House isn’t saying when Obama will speak. An ABC spokesman wouldn’t say whether the network would consider moving the premiere.
