    Writer's Strike Does What No Terrorist Could - Kill Jack Bauer

    The writer's strike coupled with production delays from the California fires has caused Fox to cancel 24 for this season.

    Oh man, Jack is going to be pissed.

    According to this Reuters story it is canceled.


    No '24' This Season Thanks to Strike
    Reuters
    Posted: 2007-11-08 09:49:14
    Filed Under: TV News
    LOS ANGELES (Nov. 8) - As the writers strike entered its third day Wednesday with no end in sight, Fox said it would not air "24" this season.

    The seventh season of the hit real-time series was scheduled to begin in January, but producers had completed only about one-third of its 24-episode order as of last week.

    "24" started production late, and was affected by the recent wildfires. The show's star, Kiefer Sutherland, is also scheduled to do a stint in jail later this year in connection with a drunk-driving conviction.

    Nah. The whole show is realy republican propoganda and its writers are still fully employed in the White House. Mindyou it would look REALY bad if it went to air when everything else was cancelled so in order to keep up pretences they planted a cock and bull story in the media.

    Regards, Anthony

    I hope the strike goes on forever and the tv networks buy foreign tv shows and air them instead of just copying the foreign tv shows as they do now. I don't see this strike affecting "Ninja Warrior" so life is good.

    I will gladly write the next season of 24 for scale, and I guarantee the best season ever.

    Here's the outline
    Terrorist attack
    Jack gets mad
    Jack has to make a choice between his friends/family and stopping the terrorists.
    Jack is betrayed
    Some avg americans die
    Someone from CTU dies
    Jacks figures out who the betrayer is
    Jack stops the terrorist but has to pay a price
    The few, the proud, the likely insane, Metro-Atlanta bicycle commuters.
