The original 24 TV show was a big ratings success for the FOX network for several years. Now, they’re trying a spin-off called 24: Legacy. Can this action TV series survive without the onscreen presence of Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer? Will 24: Legacy be cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.
On 24: Legacy, it’s a race against the clock to stop a devastating terrorist attack on United States soil. Six months ago in Yemen, an elite squad of US Army Rangers, led by Sergeant Eric Carter (Corey Hawkins), killed terrorist leader Sheik Ibrahim Bin-Khalid. In the aftermath, Bin-Khalid’s followers declared a fatwah against Carter, his squad, and their families. This forces them into federal witness protection but an attempt on Carter’s own life makes it clear that his team is now exposed. Carter enlists Rebecca Ingram (Miranda Otto), a brilliant and ambitious intelligence officer who has stepped down from her post as National Director of CTU. She’s supporting her husband, Senator John Donovan (Jimmy Smits), in his campaign for President of the United States. The rest of the FOX cast includes Teddy Sears, Dan Bucatinsky, Anna Diop, Ashley Thomas, Charlie Hofheimer, Coral Pena, and Sheila Vand.
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.

Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
