This was Television on May 24

2010: The clock runs out on 24

Kiefer Sutherland portrayed superhuman special agent Jack Bauer for eight seasons and 192 episodes, as well as a TV movie. Bauer battled various terrorist elements over the course of a single day in each season, with each of the season’s 24 episodes representing a real-time hour of events in the show. A smash hit in its earlier seasons, when it captured the American zeitgeist in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks, the Fox thriller also won the Emmy for Oustanding Drama Series in 2006. -A.D.
