Fans of "Blood of the Samurai: The Series" will want to tune in to OC16 at 9 tonight for the debut of "Ninja EX," a new miniseries by writer/producer Aaron Yamasato and associate producer Paul Booth.

The five-episode miniseries follows the adventures of Ninja EX as he "protects the innocent and defends the weak."

Kevin Won, a champion martial artist in Wu Shu Kung Fu, who works as a Honolulu firefighter, plays the title character.

'Lost' up for two People's Choice Awards

They did it for Jasmine and Camile, but will Hawai'i TV viewers throw their notoriously enthusiastic support behind Jack and his motley band of air crash survivors?

ABC's "Lost," perhaps the biggest success story of the fall season, is up for at least two People's Choice Awards: Favorite New TV Drama and Favorite Male TV Star (Matthew Fox, left).

The nominations are being announced in two rounds. The second set of nominations will be announced next month.

For the first time in the award's 31-year history, all winners will be chosen via Internet voting. To cast a vote, log on to www.pcavote.com.

The awards show will air Jan. 9 on CBS.

"You can't live like (we do) and put out a crap album, or else people are going to want to shoot you."
