24, 24 Hours to Go.....

Agreed, Kiefer, but your show is/was produced by a rabid NeoCon and the story line follows Republican talking points on 'torture'.

And both jumped the shark a long time ago.

Insist all you want but about 30% of the public thinks its a damn documentary and 90% of the press does too.

I'm not saying it should be taken off the air. People can do like I do and not watch. Simple as that.

But while your premise is correct, your conclusion is off. '24' is part of the problem along with all of the morons who swallow its tripe.

24's Kiefer Sutherland Insists On Distinction Between Television And Reality:
"'First off, I'm just going to tell you outright, the problem is not 24. To try and correlate from what's happening on a television show to what the military is doing in the real world, I think that's ridiculous.' Does he mean he doesn't believe the reports of 24's influence? 'Well I haven't read all those reports. But if that's actually happening, then the problem that you have in the US military is massive. If your ethics in the military, in your training, is going to be counterminded by a one-hour weekly television show we've got a really big problem.' His growl grows heavy with contempt. 'If you can't tell the difference between reality and what's happening on a made-up TV show, and you're correlating that back to how to do your job in the real world, that's a big, big problem.'"

Speaking of jumping the shark.

They make it so, so hard to make fun of them when they do it themselves so damn well.

"Fresh off his stint as a war correspondent in Gaza, Joe the Plumber is now doing political strategy with Republicans.

When GOP congressional aides gather Tuesday morning for a meeting of the Conservative Working Group, Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher – more commonly known as Joe the Plumber — will be their featured guest. This group is an organization of conservative Capitol Hill staffers who meet regularly to chart GOP strategy for the week."

Who in the hell did the survey for this study. Tivo is King. Commercials not needed. Only the pause button.

Just not clear on how they applied the law of diminishing returns to watching commercials.

Trippy.... and really not that long ago.
