Washington (CNN) - White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs Friday refrained from giving an exact date of President Obama's State of the Union address, but he did offer solace to thousands of clamoring fans of the hit ABC television show "Lost": The president will not pre-empt the highly-anticipated premiere.
Social media Web sites – especially Twitter – have been buzzing with concern over the possibility that the Commander-in-chief might delay the long-awaited premiere. A Twitter hash tag was created: #NoStateOfTheUnionFeb2.
"I don't foresee a scenario in which millions of people that hope to finally get some conclusion on Lost are pre-empted by the president," Gibbs said Friday. He jokingly added, "You can quote a senior administration official."
"Lost" kicks off its sixth and final season with a three-hour premiere on February 2.
