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.

    What with the tepid characters playing the present local political and cultural scenes, we need something like “Jack” and Chloe to keep us mentally and emotionally, not to say intellectually, on kilter. There is hope for good old fashioned honesty and gallantry to be returned to the society in general; and characters and themes like these will be helpful in that becoming a reality. Great story line and excellent character match-ups! Keep it coming!

    So, is that parole officer Dana killed in Season8 still stuffed in the conference room air vent?

    And where the heck is Behrooz?

      I don’t know what is taking so long for FOX to decide whether 24 should be renewed. It is a show that is missed by many. So why not make a lot of fans happy and bring back 24…..there hasn’t been anything on TV that has been this good in quite some time.
      The fans are letting you know that this is what they want – it is a no brainer.

    I think the 24 series is awesome! Perfect timing of the year however I had to DVR to fit it into my schedule, but definitely not wanting to miss an episode. Please bring the excitement of 24, and Jack, back next season!

    Please renew-keep the Kate character in the series. She is the female Jack. Call her She-Jack or Lady Bauer. Maybe have her star in series continuing the storyline. Or costar with Jack. She has to take over now that Aubrey is gone.

    First of all 24 was not cancelled so to say cancelled again not correct. They ended 24 and it was planned.

    I personally love the show please keep 24 on fox

    Dear “24” Supporters:

    This is the correct phone number for Fox TV viewer comment line — 1-310-369-3066.

    Please call the automated voice-mail — again 1-310-369-3066 — and leave your comment urging them to renew the TV Show “24”, similar to comments you’ve posted here.

    These are THE people who make the decision, so your taking the time to express yourself could “make the difference”, between our being able to watch another season of “24”, or not.

    I thought the 12 show format was excellent. It was actually somewhat realistic. It also showed American what drones can do. The story line was very good. The show didn’t have a ton of filler and insignificant side stories. Kate Morgan was an excellent addition to the show. She is the female version of Jack. The season ends with the main characters with uncertain futures. Jack is going to Russia, Chloe is going home, Kate walked away from the CIA. Well when the girls and the big guy break Jack out of Russia, we are going to need a new president.

    I think the series aired at a time of year (late spring/early summer) when people are doing other things at night. I only watched half of the shows when they aired on fox. I copied the show to my DVR or watched it on-demand thru my cable provider.

    I think viewership after the original airing needs to be factored in. It the 3rd most popular television show in my area on Comcast. They advertise it verbally in a count down format. I watched the last show again tonight. There are advertisers paying to air commercials in the on demand market. Money, that’s what it’s all about. Right?
