"24" is canceled. It's official. Now Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) can't save the world, nor can he save America from Jihadist terrorists. Jack Bauer never really could save anyone because Jack Bauer isn't a real person.
Nevertheless, Jack Bauer has seemed like a real friend, political ally, and hero to fans all over the world, both conservatives and liberals, since 2001, shortly after the horrible events of 9/11. It was reported a few seasons ago that Conservative Talk Show Host Rush Limbaugh flew to the Los Angeles, CA area to visit the "24" behind-the-scenes set because he was such an enthusiastic fan.
I will sorely miss Jack Bauer. "24" is one of the few television shows I watch, and I have looked forward to the little escape mechanism "24" provided, with the help of Kiefer Sutherland. Kiefer Sutherland is the actor who breathed life into Jack Bauer, and made him seem like a real human being.
"24" has, sadly, been canceled. Soon Jack Bauer will fade into the memories of his fans. "24" will be ending after 10 more hours of episodes. The announcement was made at the end of Monday night's show (March 29). There will be a special 2-hour event of "24" airing on Fox on Monday, April 5, beginning at 8 PM in Los Angeles, CA.
