The second chapter of American Horror Story, which will feature characters in a mental institution, will be fittingly called "Asylum," FX announced Wednesday.

"This year's theme is about sanity and tackling real-life horrors."

Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) is one heck of a CTU agent. Unfortunately, this superagent has encountered trouble in every shape and form over the last eight seasons of 24, from former CTU agent-turned-mole Nina Meyers to President Charles Logan to Jack's own father. TVGuide.com takes a look back at the best baddies in Jack's wake.

Every really bad day of Bauer's packs so many plot devices into 24 hours it's hard to always keep things fresh. Here are a few of the most ridiculous plotlines the writers of the Fox series conjured up over eight seasons:

It's no surprise that the state of SAG's contract negotiations are lagging while tension continues to flare between the union and AFTRA. Now, however, Sandra Oh's heading into the battle for SAG, with a recorded phone message to dual card-holding members urging them not to ratify the AFTRA pact.The actress' message for SAG follows a similar one that AFTRA released with James Cromwell last week, in which he urged members to vote for the pact. Per Variety, SAG asserts that AFTRA's deal just isn't up to snuff on a number of issues, including salary minimums, online clip consent, DVD residuals, new media pay rates and jurisdiction, force majeure and product integration protections.

Was Catherine Bell busy? Natasha Henstridge (Eli Stone) will join JAG alum David James Elliott in Impact, a two-part TV disaster movie about a dwarf star (or, to be politcally correct, "little person star") that strikes the moon and thus wreaks havoc on Earth. James Cromwell is also onboard, leading me to suspect that a talking pig may factor into the world's salvation.The $14 million miniseries began shooting last week, says Variety, and also stars Benjamin Sadler and Florentine Lahme.
