Why we can’t wait to see ”24”

THE DEAL Three years have passed since season 2, and Jack Bauer (Keifer Sutherland) now heads his own field-ops unit at CTU. Running the show while running for his life — now that’s multitasking.

FUN FACT The first episode will be commercial free, so no need for TiVo.

WHY WE CAN’T WAIT President Palmer (Dennis Haysbert) has survived that sneaky biological attack, but producers promise the Pres is a changed man because of it. Plus, we’re dying to see how a whole new slate of recurring characters (including former “NYPD Blue” tough chick Andrea Thomspson as a terrorism expert) mix things up.

WHY WE’RE HOOKED Jack Bauer does more in a day than most TV heroes do in a season.
