[WARNING: The following story contains spoilers from the most recent episode of 24: Live Another Day as well as possible future episodes of Game of Thrones. Read at your own risk.]

24: Live Another Day may have fooled audiences when the show "killed" President Heller, but this week's casualty is a goner for sure. 

After Jack (Kiefer Sutherland) and Chloe (Mary Lynn Rajskub) were able to fake the death of President Heller (William Devane) by hacking into the video feed on the drone terrorist Margot Al-Harazi (Michelle Fairley) was using to target the leader of the free world, Margot honored her word to crash all her other drones and cease the attacks on London. However, when Margot realized she'd been tricked...read more

Exclusive 24 First Look: Will President Heller's Plan Work?

President Heller made the ultimate sacrifice on last week's 24: Live Another Day. But was it all for nothing?

And based on this exclusive preview clip from Monday's episode (9/8c, Fox), Jack may have been rightread more

Critic's Notebook: Summer TV Comings and Goings

Forget the old Rodgers & Hammerstein song about June. TV is busting out all over, and what a remarkable week it has been. Starting with HBO's Game of Thrones wrapping another astounding season last Sunday — this run of episodes blessed by being able to dramatize so many, though not all, of the climactic events of book 3, A Storm of Swords, the best in George R.R. Martin's "Song of Ice & Fire" series — ending with a...read more

24 Postmortem: Live Another Day Bosses on the 200th Episode's "Sacrifice"

[WARNING: The following story contains spoilers from Monday's 24: Live Another Day. Read at your own risk.]

Talk about taking one for the team.

On Monday's 24: Live Another Day — the franchise's 200th episode — President James Heller (William Devane) agreed to hand himself over to terrorist Margot Al-Harazi (Michelle Fairley) in order to stop Margot's continued bloodshed via drone attacks on London. And although Jack (Kiefer Sutherland) warned Heller not to negotiate with Margot, when Jack, Kate (Yvonne Strahovski) and Chloe (Mary Lynn Rajskub) were unable to find Margot themselves, Heller moved forward with his plan... read more

24 Celebrates 200 Episodes: Will Heller Actually Turn Himself Over to Margot?

It may have taken a circuitous route, but on Monday, Fox's 24 franchise will air its 200th episode. 

"It's fantastic," series co-creator and executive producer Robert Cochran told reporters of reaching milestone. "It's something that makes us very humble and very thankful for the fans around the world... that have supported us all these years. I can promise you when we started the show, this thing wasn't even in our minds. We were trying to get to Episode 2. We're very thankful for it." .... read more

Question: I am shocked how some of your readers think Fargo should have been just a follow-up to the movie with let's see how Marge is doing since everyone else involved in the movie was either dead or in prison. I agree that the show is terrific. The episode last week was one of the most amazing episodes of TV I have ever seen.

24: Live Another Day: Will Chloe Continue to Stand by Jack?

The last four years have not been kind to 24: Live Another Day's Chloe O'Brian.

As viewers learned in the event series' premiere, more than just Chloe's appearance has changed since her days as a CTU analyst. On Monday's episode (9/8c, Fox), we'll find out exactly what went down when Chloe (Mary Lynn Rajskub) tells Jack (Kiefer Sutherland) the heartbreaking truth. An added bonus: Chloe's confession also begins to thaw the icy dynamic between Jack and his former sidekick.

Monday Review: The Return of 24 and Louie

A day in the life of Jack Bauer would go so much easier if anyone would just listen to him when he barks commands like, "Stop that couple!" Fat chance when what seems like half the armed personnel of the CIA's London bureau have guns pointed at the good guy instead of the fleeing bad guys.

Will they never learn? Apparently not. Which is no doubt exactly the desire of the fans who've been waiting four long years — that's roughly 35,064 hours in real time — for 24, one of TV's most electrifying thrillers, and Kiefer Sutherland as its beleaguered yet seemingly indestructible hero to snap back into action. The novelty — and thus, a bit of the edge — is gone as Fox's 12-part 24: Live Another Day seeks to prove that less is more, slowly revving up the comfortably formulaic engine while visceral split-screen editing once again intensifies the literally explosive twists. And yet, because a sad, mad, badass Jack Bauer is the only Jack we've ever known, there's something grimly satisfying when he mutters bleakly to one of his few allies, "I don't have any friends."
