Entertainment Weekly (sometimes abbreviated as EW) is a weekly subscription magazine that often publishes articles about Lost in their magazine and on their website. Entertainment Weekly covers mostly film and television stories, usually not covering stories about celebrity life, like magazines similar to People. Occasionally, the magazine may cover an outrageous story about a celebrity. The launch of Entertainment Weekly was very successful. The attracted audiences are usually young readers and women. It addresses TV ratings, ticket sales, the cost of production, and other statistics of the entertainment industry. Entertainment Weekly is indeed published weekly. It was first published in 1990, and in 2003, the average weekly circulation of the magazine was about 1,700,000 copies. In each end of the year issue, the Entertainer of the Year, chosen by readers at Entertainment Weekly's website, is put on the front cover.
