24: Three more days in hell for Jack Bauer

Variety reports that Kiefer Sutherland has signed on to stay with top TV thriller 24 through to the end of Season 8. For anyone keeping count, good old Jack Bauer is currently surviving his fifth day in hell on US TV - that means three more apocalyptic incidents that only the hardest working man in American Intelligence can stop. I haven't seen Season 5 yet, but I've heard murmurs about a massive cast cull taking place through the 24 [natch] episodes. One wonders who'll be left alive for Season 6, let along 7 and 8. Bring back the cougar, that's I say. Meanwhile, hurry up and release Season 5 on DVD, please!

Will day eight be a Bank Holiday Monday.

Perhaps. Some people like to rest on the seventh day - obviously our Jack isn't one of them.

Personally, I'll like to see a 24 set on Christmas Day. "The following episode takes place between 2pm and 3pm, as Jack tries to digest a plateful of brussell sprouts..."
