24: Live Another Day: Ratings

24 Live Another Day ratingsAfter running for eighth seasons, FOX cancelled the 24 TV series due to declining ratings. Now, the characters are back for a “limited” series of 12 episodes. Will the ratings be good enough for the network to renew 24 for another season or will this be the end for Jack Bauer for good? Stay tuned!

24: Live Another Day: is set four years after the events of season eight and finds Jack (Kiefer Sutherland) in London, once again trying to prevent a global disaster. The rest of the cast includes Yvonne Strahovski, Tate Donovan, Mary Lynn Rajskub, William Devane, Gbenga Akinnagbe, Giles Matthey, Michael Wincott, Benjamin Bratt, and Kim Raver.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — typically the following morning, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

    There’s little satisfaction in watching TV these days with all of the alleged reality shows and stupid sit coms or 40 year old reruns over and over. PLEASE bring back 24 series to make at least one night a week enjoyable. This country needs Jack Bauer in SO many ways!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        Is there anyone out there listening to us. It minds me of star trek. They canceled after three season and you know what happened after that .(trekies all over the place).

            I can.t believe that no one is pleading to get the show back on the air. doesn’t anyone appreciate a great show, especially with so much garbage out there

              I work in tourism transportation on Miami Beach in Florida.

              I was honored about two months ago to drive a Fox Television employee to the Airport, and begged her to return “24” to the air.

              She told me:

              1. Kiefer Sutherland has a drinking problem. And

              2. He is holding out with salary demands which Fox Entertainment feels are unreasonable.

              I was, and am, crushed to think that our own Hero may be the biggest obstacle to achieving our goal of seeing him, and the show, “24”, back on the air.

              I commented to her something to the effect of, “Well, if the Star of the is unwilling, that pretty much stops things right there.”

              We are only hearing this tremendously nice, and credible, woman’s version, but it would appear Kiefer Sutherland needs to explain if this is true, i.e. if he has a drinking problem interfering with his returning to the Show, and if his money demands are so high Fox is not to blame for failing to return the Show to the air.

              I am NOT a fan of Fox News. The passenger assured me there is a vast separation between Fox News and Fox Entertainment.

      I was glad to see 24back on tv, even though it was for a limited time. I really miss Jack. This was one show that kept you on your seat. I really wish they would consider bringing back the show for next season.

    Please bring 24 back, it is by doubt one of the most exciting, suspense filled show that I have seen in a long time. I watched it the entire 8 seasons it was on tv. However, I still watch the reruns now. Most of the show on tv now are reality shows that I care not to watch. I hope they are planning to bring back another series in 2015 and if not 2016.

    My husband and I LOVE “24”. We think Keifer Southerland is wonderful as Jack Bauer! We saved the last 2 episodes of this past season and we are now watching them again 2 days after Christmas! Please keep this show on the air! We are ready for some new episodes!!

    24 is my favourite TV show of all time and the final episode of LAD ranks as one of my favourite episodes (Jack finally killed Cheng Zhi). So take Jack away from spending the rest of his life in a Russian prison and make more seasons please.

    Keep this show on air. I love it! It’s just as good as it was the first years. It would be a shame to see the studio cancel such a great show again!

    • allan says

      I remember when star trek was canceled and it went on and became incredibly big making million and billions of dollar. There is an old saying, don’t fix something that is not broken. Great show that if canceled would be a great loss to all the fans of 24 and the TV station producing it. Long live the show that gives thrills and suspense to so many people across the country.

    Great writing, acting is wonderful. Tremendous action and always leaves you wanting more. my entire family are die heart fans as well as many of my friends. There are so few quality shows on tv and it would be almost criminal to take a quality show of this caliber off the air. WE are looking forward to a new season of such intrique and excitement. It’s far better than ice cream, whip cream and a cheery. Allan

    Do you think the time of year had anything to do with the drop in ratings? (even tho’ it’s hard to believe!) LOTS of people vacation, have company, etc. when it aired….
    MISS JACK SO MUCH and the cast & storylines.
