Jack didn’t take it very well.
FOX has decided to pull the plug on 24 after eight seasons. Climbing budgets, declining ratings, and writers being unable to figure out what the hell is left for Jack Bauer to save are the main reasons the show will air its final episode in May. NBC flirted with the idea of picking up 24 next season but after their accountants crunched the numbers they realized the content wasn’t worth the cheddar.
There’s still the possibility of a 24 feature film that would take Jack Bauer to Europe, but there’s also the possibility of an Arrested Development movie, and we all know how sluggishly that’s been making its adaptation. I enjoyed 24 a great deal in its earlier years, but quickly got tired of the same "Tell me where the bomb is!" storyline week after week after week after week. It had a good run. I’m glad they’re ending it before it jumps a terrorist shark strapped to the gills with C4. (THR)
