When will tonight's Lost be posted on Hulu? At what time?

Can't watch Lost live tonight (argh). Is the new episode for-sure going to be posted on Hulu tomorrow? What time?

I know all the previous seasons are up there, but I can't find any little blurbs saying anything like "this show will not be posted for 8 days" or crap like that. So should I assume it'll air like a normal main-network show?

Also, assuming it's going up on Hulu tomorrow, anyone have any idea what time shows get posted at? I heard 5 a.m. PST. Yes, I may be insane enough to get up then and watch it before work, mostly because attempting to avoid spoilage all day until I have two hours to watch it is probably going to be impossible. But I'd rather know that for sure before I wake myself up ridiculously early and find out otherwise.

Yes, I checked the FAQ already, it wasn't there.

Hulu usually takes a while, sometimes more than a day, but abc.com is sure to have the episodes earlier than Hulu. That's been my experience anyway.

"The first episode in Lost's final season will air tonight on ABC at 8 p.m. EST.

NewTeeVee confirmed with ABC that tonight’s episode, will be available by 5 AM EST/2 AM PST on both ABC.com and Hulu." (link)

I don't know about Hulu, but it'll be on every torrent site on the Internet within hours of broadcast.

Can't really say for this season, but all the episodes from the past three seasons have been posted the following day by 5am pacific time to abc.com

This is not actually true. The 8PM hour is a recap/clip show. The two new episodes air at 9PM and 10PM EST.

I think it depends... Heroes gets posted around 2-3 am PST. I think FlashForward was posted on the following Saturdays. For Lost, it doesn't show up on coming soon, and doesn't even say something on the lines of "we are able to post the last n trailing episodes", so I really can't tell.

Even if it takes a while to show up on Hulu, some series show up earlier in the paid places (Xbox, PS3, zune, iTunes, Amazon), in case you're willing to pay the 2 bucks (for House for example, it shows up the following day instead of 8 days after). I think there's a good chance ABC may try to milk this one.

I was just quoting the site. I think the pertinent information is that they (supposedly) confirmed with ABC that it would be posted by 5am. I included the first setence to show it pertained to this season and not previous ones.
